About

Tristan Roques (1995, NL) is a multidisciplinary designer.
As a student within the department Man & Communication he spends his time on communicating important social issues (such as: work ethics, cyber surveillance and national identity) to a large audience. He likes to use humor as a tool to start a discussion.
When he isn’t a student Tristan organises events at Van Abbemuseum as coördinator of Young Art Crowd. He also enjoys working on side-projects with friends.

The Most Extravagant Twister Game Ever Live Streamed in an Art Space, playable

'The Most Extravagant Twister Game Ever Live Streamed in an Art Space, playable' was an attempt to break an (un)official world record. Together with Ylja Band and other designers/artists we transformed MU art space into a gigantic Twister field, including: Twister-police, performances and music. In a series of videos we spread news about a contagious Twister-virus hitting Eindhoven.
