About me
Coming from Riga, Latvia, my background has brought me from studying silver-smithing, then transitioning to exercising product design in The Design Academy of Eindhoven, from where-on I now enable this eclectic skill-set in combination with conceptual thinking and visual communication to design experiences and products for the human body. Functional and fictional projects that all intend to investigate, but also modify the human body.
Projects

  • Ezera Skanas
    Ezera SkanasEzera Skanas is a musical, visual and metaphysical event that starts before the sunrise - 5:00 AM. Events unfold on the stage in the middle of a distant lake. It is momentary in its nature, it resembles a dream. Without formal speeches, without any names and rules it remains a personal and unifying experience. People attend the event in their boats during the middle of the night. There is silence and darkness all around the lake. Then the first objects of light appear. The first sounds begin to play. Performance grows up with the rising light and culminates with the sunrise. Music and visual objects complement the natural landscape and have a stimulating nature, leaving an open space for each ones imagination. Art direction - Reinis Spaile, Matīss Spaile, Zane Priede Scenography - Zane Priede, Daniela Treija, Jonathan Roditi, Josef Trojan, Kristofers Reidzans Costumes - Daniela Treija & Kristofers Reidzans Photography - Kristaps Dzenis, Zane Priede, Ieva Raudsepa
