Adinda de Kousemaeker is a Dutch designer and artist, born on March 14, 1995 in Gapinge, Zeeland. After high school she completed a course in Ruimtelijk Vormgeving en Presentatie at the Graphic Lyceum in Rotterdam (GLR). This was followed by a bachelor's degree in Product Design at the Hogeschool voor de Kunsten in Utrecht (HKU). During her training, her attention has increasingly focused on the relationship and interaction of humans with nature.
“I remember the summers of my childhood well. Climbing and clambering in the garden and building giant huts in the trees. Building sandcastles on the high tide line, making rafts on the Veerse Meer and cycling through the polder with a fresh headwind. I was constantly interacting with nature.”
This must have led to her fascination with nature, which is a constant source of inspiration for the projects she works on.

We are becoming more and more alienated from nature. We have no idea how our food grows, our bodies epilate and take it for granted that water comes from the tap.
Adinda de Kousemaeker investigates our relationship with nature through various media. How can we feel more empathy for our earth and for the things that are emotionally far away from us?
Adinda strives to convey her admiration and wonderment for the mechanisms and organization of nature, which we take for granted. Her work aims to foster empathy and respect for nature and encourage us to rethink our relationship with nature.
