Ik ben Dave Haverkort, grafisch ontwerper gevestigd in Utrecht. Mijn praktijk is gebaseerd op een oneindige zoektocht naar unieke grafische systemen waar code, eenvoud en functionaliteit naast elkaar kunnen bestaan.

Dit leidt tot een open aanpak in diverse media, wat betekent dat ik opensta voor nieuwe ontwikkelingen. Met een focus op het ontwerpen van visuele identiteiten, print, websites en publicaties, streef ik ernaar om betekenisvolle en eigentijdse visuele oplossingen te produceren.

Resurrection Manifest

In the current zeitgeist heavily influenced by a global crisis, we experience a further focus of capitalist powerhouses on the rapid implementation of robotics and artificial technologies. Techniques that can make physical and personal human contact superfluous, in order to keep society safe and economically stable. What is the role of the future human in a technocratic society, will we feel less human when our tasks are taken away? A development that can become a blessing or a curse for the future of society and human existence.

Print, Manifest & Machine Learning

            Human evolution and the birth of a new human species (Homo Deus) and organic individuality – is the way the world is heading a step closer to a world where even the remaining human is simply a physical part of the machine? Already today we see major industrial projects that would previously be performed by manual labour, now being performed by robots. On the one hand, the emergence of the humanoids raises the need for a profound reassessment of who should work and how they should live. On the other hand, a complete disappearance of all non-bio-sustainable labour in the field of eugenics could be extremely dangerous. We cannot afford a world where the importance of ‘being human’ becomes moot.

            Therefore, artificial intelligence is neither good nor evil. It simply does not yet exist, and we are therefore in a privileged position to make moral, ethical and political choices with respect to this emerging technology. The identification of clear moral, ethical and political limits to the use of autonomous robots should become an essential task in the development of such technology, for both the pursuit of its commercial use as well as the exploration of the ways in which such technology might be utilized in the areas of social progress. The availability of new intelligent machines will likely result in the replacement of human labour. What will become of the demographic changes that our societies have been struggling to manage? It is clear that these demographic changes may be a decisive factor when discussing the status of our future generations. Therefore, the risk that machines will replace human labour in particular sectors will pose serious questions for our current economic model. If we are concerned about these demographic changes, the failure to manage them effectively and quickly will become a great threat to our future. A different economic model may emerge that will provide society with adequate resources to invest in the development of the next generation. In the longer term, the demographic changes may also affect the way in which the profits and power of companies are distributed. Therefore we have to work towards an open innovation of the welfare state that could lead to an exciting rebirth of civic and community life.
