Barbara Medo is a material designer and photographer, two sides that always come together in her work. In the latest Share the Vibe video she pays tribute to a city in transformation.
“I’ve lived at Strijp-S for years and see how the city is changing enormously. All those new buildings that are rising up, I wanted to do something with that in the video. I work a lot with photography myself and making this video felt a bit like creating a stop-motion movie. In the Share the Vibe you see different buildings being built and the city slowly changing.”
“It starts in the night, with the nightlife of the city, and then continues as a kind of time-lapse into the daylight. I have used many colours to emphasize the vibrant character of Eindhoven.”
“Strijp-S is not only the place where I live, but also where I have my studio. I work in Plug-in-City, a kind of city in a city. A small community of creatives based on a circular economy. We are a temporary ‘village’, and will probably stay at this place at Strijp-S for the next few years. We built Plug-in-City ourselves, I think those modular buildings might have inspired me for this video as well.”
