WHO IS THE 'SELF' IN SELF SUFFICIENCY?
In the Anthropocene humans affect the earth on a geological scale. Satellietgroep explores the Zandmotor, a prime example of the anthropogenic frame of mind, as a cultural phenomenon. We need engaged artists and passionate scientists to unexpectedly explore the world around us and jointly test our perceptions.
Satellietgroep @ NYC
Kunstenaarscollectief Satellietgroep (Den Haag, 2006) onderzoekt de zee, kusttransities, klimaatverandering en de rol van de mens in deze processen, in binnen- en buitenland.
Met de actuele discussie over het nieuwe geologische tijdperk, het Antropoceen genoemd, komen we tot het inzicht dat de mens ook sturend is in veranderingsprocessen op aarde. Veel van ons veranderende klimaat hangt nu immers samen met de invloed die wij als mens uitoefenen op onze leefomgeving. Besef van het kustlandschap als cultuurlandschap draagt bij aan het beter leren begrijpen van de geschiedenis (waar komen we vandaan) en de toekomst (waar gaan we naartoe). Satellietgroep onderzoekt samen met kunstenaars, ontwerpers en experts sinds 2014 de Zandmotor als cultureel fenomeen, als voorbeeld van de antropogene invloed van de mens op aarde. Na eeuwenlang bouwen van dijken, dammen en sluizen die effect hebben op onder meer verzilting en het verhinderen van transport van sedimenten naar zee (de zogenaamde zandhonger langs de Nederlandse kust) is de Zandmotor het nieuwste voorbeeld van de hybride relatie mens en natuur: build by man, performed by nature. De Zandmotor is een nieuw kustlandschap in Zuid-Holland, ten zuiden van Den Haag. Als een efemeer Land Art project is de Zandmotor in 2011 gebouwd met 21,5 miljoen m3 Pleistoceen zand van de bodem van de Noordzee, uit de tijd dat de mammoeten wandelden over de bodem van wat we nu de Noordzee noemen. Het is een openbaar toegankelijk wetenschappelijk onderzoeksterrein om nieuwe kennis te genereren voor de toekomstige kustbescherming, genaamd Bouwen met de Natuur. Uniek, want de Zandmotor is het enige stukje buitendijks Nederland dat is gebouwd als experiment om te veranderen en zelfs op te gaan in zee, strand en duinen rond 2031.
Artists collective Satellietgroep (The Hague, 2006) explores through arts & design the social and ecological impact of the sea and coastal transitions on cities, people, communities and environments, and vice versa the influence of mankind on coastal transitions and climate change in The Netherlands and abroad. Our aim is to enhance public and professional awareness on coastal transitions. Satellietgroep hosts artists in residents for artistic fieldwork, connect with locals and experts and develop new concepts and works that reflect the resilience of coexistence of man and water, in past, present and future. Long term projects are 'Badgast' - artist in residency program at The Hague/Scheveningen (2009-2014), 'Now Wakes The Sea', the international exchange residency program in collaboration with international cultural partners (since 2012).
Starting September 2014 we program the first artistic research on the Zandmotor in collaboration with Villa Ockenburgh/Locatie Z (2014-2015), with international collaborations with Nida Art Colony (LT), NCCA St.Petersburg (RU) and LMCC (NYC).
Satellietgroep programs 3 DCR Gueststudios at DCR, the cultural incubator in The Hague that also houses 35 permanent studios for artists and designers, including the studio of Satellietgroep, Zaal 3 - laboratory for performing arts of Theater aan het Spui, sound studio Loos, Cloud Danslab and exhibition space Nest. If you are interested in a short or long term cultural visit in The Hague, chack out: www.gueststudio.com | www.dedcr.nl
The curatorial team of Satellietgroep consists of Jacqueline Heerema, Francois Lombarts and Lotte Bosman.

INVITATION DECEMBER 10, 2016:
PUBLIC EXPEDITION SOLLEVELD & ZANDMOTOR#10: WATERPIONIER
Satellietgroep and Onkruidenier warmly invite you to join our public expediton through the coastal landscape of Solleveld and Zandmotor.
Link to newsletter December 2016: http://ymlp.com/zcKkfI
Together with experts in hydrology, Dunea water & dune, archeology and ecology we will walk through a time line of 10.000 years coastal landscape history. Visiting several locations in the dunes and on the Zandmotor we experience the different relationships we have with water, climate and nature. Together we reflect on the influence of climate change and sealevel rise and how we can learn to positions ourselves in these transitions for the coming future. During the expedition Satellietgroep and Onkruidenier will offer the participants at 5 locations the taste of the old and new coastal landscape.
The expedition is expected to last about three hours. There’s a limited amount of places available, so please sign in beforehand by sending an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
We’ll then send you more detailed information about the expedition, route, location and options for (public) transport.
During this expedition we position ourselves as climate tour guides and learn all about fresh water making in the dunes, discovering the old agriculture fields and archeological traces in the dunes, the Zandmotor and the new fresh water lens toward the ancient fossil water pockets in the seabed of the North Sea.

ZANDMOTOR ZANDGLAS BY ATELIER NL
You can sign up now for the very first 'ZandGlas' by Atelier NL:
unique hand blown objects made from Zandmotor sand.
Satellietgroep is very proud that Atelier NL has choosen to work with Satellietgroep and has developed this new visual narrative of the hybrid relationship of mankind with nature. This Zandmotor ZandGlas is a prime example of Innovatory Heritage, an innovative method of storytelling through arts, design and science for broader audiences.
These are the very first prototypes of a new serie and thus a real collector's item. 'ZandGlas' is not just for connoisseurs – but for all coastal, art and design enthusiasts with a passion for history and innovation. Contact Atelier NL if you are interested at email@example.com
Designers Nadine Sterk and Lonny van Ryswyck of Atelier NL used the sand from the Zandmotor and developed ZandGlas in collaboration with our network of scientists. For the manufacture of the limited edition, the designers worked together with Gert Bullée, top glassblower in the Netherlands. At high temperatures, the wild sands of the Zandmotor melt and eventually transform into characteristic, pale green glass. Sleek and elegant design in a sophisticated colour, and with charming imperfections that make each object unique.

SEPTEMBER 14, KURHAUS SCHEVENINGEN
5 YEARS ZANDMOTOR CONFERENCE
ZANDMOTOR AS A CULTURAL PHENOMENON
Satellietgroep is invited by Rijkswaterstaat and Provincie Zuid-Holland to participate during the Zandmotor Conference on the 14th of September in order to celebrate 5 years of the Zandmotor. We will give a Talk and Presentation of the Zandmotor as a Cultural Phenomenon.
The Zandmotor is described as Building with Nature, a conceptual shift in our relationship with the sea. This relationship is as much a cultural phenomenon as it is an ecological or engineering one. Designed by man, performed by nature. Satellietgroep explores the Zandmotor as an innovation that generates innovatory visual narratives about the hybrid relationship of mankind and man made nature. It requires the arts and design to further explore the implications of this evolving relationship to be shared with broader audiences.
During the Expo Market of the conference Satellietgroep presents a selection of our growing Zandmotor Collection, developed by artist in residents Zoro Feigl, Theun Karelse, Josje Hattink, Berndnaut Smilde, Sarah Cameron Sunde, Laboratory for Microclimates, Esther Kokmeijer and students of the ArtScience Interfaculty, in close collaboration with cultural partners, scientists and local experts.
Together with Onkruidenier we present the ongoing research called Water Pioneer, with A Taste of Climate Change, drinks and amuses made from edible plants found on the Zandmotor.
Design duo Atelier NL presents ZandGlas, an unique set of glassware, made of sand from the Zandmotor.
TU Delft, Department of GeoScience & Engineering, Faculty of CITG presents the innovation called Beachrock, a process that turns sand into stone.

2016: NEW ARTISTIC RESEARCH ZANDMOTOR: THE WATERPIONEER
SATELLIETGROEP & DE ONKRUIDENIER
How salt adaptive are humans? Around 3% of the earths water is fresh. So why not look at the potential of using that other 97%? Can humans become more salt (halo) tolerant?
Plants, animals and humans appropriate the new coastal landscape of the Zandmotor. The first concern for these pioneers is drinking water. On the Zandmotor there are no visible forms of fresh water. No rivers and no water taps, a dessert surrounded by the salty waters of the sea.
Halotolerance is the ability of living organisms to adapt and survive in conditions with a high salt content. What can we learn from the ability of plants and animals to adapt and survive in a salty environment? Can humans evolve and become more halotolerant?
Satellietgroep & De Onkruidenier explore the timeline of the old dunes of Solleveld with human traces since the Iron age and Dunea (Dune and Drinking Water Company), the reconstructed watershed, the growing sweetwater bubble underneath the newest innovation Zandmotor with NatureCoast until the fossil water under the North Sea, to learn to understand the gradients of salinazation of the Zandmotor and Solleveld dunes. With special thanks to the municipallity of The Hague.

EXPEDITION#8: LANDSCHAPSEXTRACTEN WATERLAND
EXPLORING THE SALT OF THE ZUIDERZEE
SATELLIETGROEP & DE ONKRUIDENIER
Waterlandse Vloed 1916-2016
Over het IJ Festival, NDSM werf Amsterdam Noord
For donations: https://www.voordekunst.nl/projecten/4616-expeditie-landschapsextracten
As part of the ongoing research called Waterpionier, during Expedition Landschapsextracten Satellietgroep & De Onkruidenier together with farmers, experts and audiences explore the impact of salt of the Waterland Flood of 1916 in the landscape.
Untill a hunderd years ago Amsterdam was on the shores of the Zuiderzee, protected for tides and salt water intrusions by dikes along the IJ. In 1916 the dike at Schellingwoude broke. Salt seawater flooded the landscape and infuenced lives and environment. This flood instigated the building of the Afsluitdijk and Zuiderzee became IJsselmeer. After hunderd years, can we still find the traces of salt in the landscape of Waterland? In the soil, the water, the plants, the naratives? Can we tast the salt of the Zuiderzee?
Would you like to taste the salt of Waterland Flood?
You can contribute now to this project with your donation, book one of the bike expeditions and visit the Landschapsbank at Over het IJ Festival. Support the project and soon you'll be able to taste the salt of the Waterland Flood!
Join us for the bike expedition and discover what lies beneath the surface of the landscape! Explore with artists Ronald Boer, Jonmar van Vlijmen and Francois Lombarts and their mobile labs the various landscape extracts. Be sure to bring along a bike.
Dates: 9, 10, 16 en 17 juli, 15:00 - 18:00

Performances: start at 19:00
For SAND SONGS a group af artists is invited to imagine this landscape as if it is a musical instrument, played by the natural elements and by human intervention. The artists developed performances and musical compositions especially for the landscape of the Zandmotor. In a series of short and longer interventions, they make use of sound, light, the wind, water flow and the sand in new and inventive ways. Flying a kite becomes a new way to make electronic music; home made pulse jet motors generate a composition on the scale of a landscape; there are kinetic wind and light sculptures; a soundwalk guides you along as you walk blindfolded, and you can take part in a musical treasure hunt, searching for sounding objects buried in the sand.
