During his studies he had the opportunity to get to know a variety of media and materials he can express his ideas with. He uses this knowledge to tell and to build his stories, aiming to captivate an audience and to show a different access to a certain topic.

Marc Barrda

Barreda's work attempts to physicalize the experience of the intangible: the drama of existence, the essence of memory, the captivating qualities of curiosity, and the invisible machinery of phenomena. Through analogy or interaction he strives to create a bridge between science and sensitivity, between the mechanics of physical reality and the metaphysics of culture.

Design Debates

Eindhoven strives to be the Design Capital of Europe. These ambitions make sense, with a flourishing design network, impressive design and art galleries, a smart and creative region and of course the world famous Dutch Design Week.
A Design Capital needs a platform to discuss, feed the design climate, to cross boundaries with other disciplines and of course connect all players (and players-to-be) within the field. Therefore Eindhoven-based cultural and educational institutions Design Academy Eindhoven, MU, The New Institute, Capital D founded the Design Debates platform. The platform is supported by critical friends: Baltan Laboratories, Alice, Capital D. Every month Design Debates Eindhoven will host an afternoon debate at the Designhuis in Eindhoven.
