The Dutch artist and designer discussed her work with Dezeen's founder and editor-in-chief Marcus Fairs.
Van der Eijk is an alumna of the Royal Academy of Art and the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague, the Netherlands, where she obtained a degree in graphic design and an interdisciplinary masters in art-science.
Her work explores the intersection of design and ecological issues, taking what Van der Eijk refers to as an "anti-anthropocentric" approach.
Previous projects include an installation comprising a series of 3D-printed models of the foot of a receding glacier in Switzerland. The exhibit attempted to explore feelings of "ecological grief".
This conversation is sponsored by Philips TV & Sound and is part of our Screentime series for Virtual Design Festival, which features interviews with designers including Teresa van Dongen, Theodora Alfredsdottir and Ini Archibong.
