Turn The Page | June 21, 2022

I love light. Whether it be the rising sun upon returning home after an endless party, or the glowing stars on a warm and clear summer’s eve. It could even be the flashing light of the stroboscope at a rave, making time go slower. I could go on for hours about lava lamps, traffic lights, disco lamps, and glow in the dark stars. There really is joy in light. Now that I think of it, many of my favourite memories involve light.

Summer is nearing, and there is enough light to fill my sun-craving heart again. By the time you are reading this, I hope to be lying in a field of grass soaking up as much sunlight as my pale skin can handle. And I hope you also enjoy Turn the Page basking in the sun, accompanied by a refreshing beverage. Or in the middle of the night, under the blankets with a flashlight.

As you might have guessed, this edition has everything to do with light! That is why we fittingly called it ‘illuminate’. We want to shine a light upon the things you might have not seen before.

Take the material mycelium as described in our green pages. Or the cover story about art. Besides, this is also the ‘alumni edition’, which is sent to all our beautiful IDE alumni (hi there!). We also included some articles that might be useful for your professional life! The column about ‘hersketeknikker’, for example.

May this issue inspire you to shine bright and be full of light.
