In 2003 the Freshdeuce Foundation
was initiated by Daan Archer and Remco Wendt in collaboration with the Institute for Informatics and Electrical Engineering at the Hogeschool van Amsterdam / University of Amsterdam. The foundation was sponsored by Intel's Digital Home Lab in Santa Clara, USA.
The objective of FreshDeuce was for high-potential students to excel in interdisciplinary interactive media projects. All projects were managed by former students. Over a period of three years the foundation ran three interactive media projects during which 20+ students developed computational and electronic technologies. Students received course grades and some earned a BSc-degree based on their work. Main technologies used were C++, Python, OpenGL, Ruby-On-Rails, C, Active-RFID, Zigbee.
FreshDeuce's software has been exhibited to small and larger audiences during special events.
Inspired by FreshDeuce and our successor, the Hogeschool van Amsterdam launched its official applied research centre CREATE-IT
The FreshDeuce Foundation integrates technologies, science, art and design.
FreshDeuce thrives to break away from fixed thinking patterns. The FreshDeuce technicians explore new areas to establish a world in which technology is more than a medium. Technicians, scientists, psychologists, sociologists, industrial designers and artists need to form an alliance to realize creative and innovative concepts in the world. The result is a new art form, a synergy of creativity and technology.
