Jurgen Bey (1965) is driven by the ambition to understand the world. He is able to question it in a unique manner. Bey sees himself as a researcher who analyzes the world we live in, in order to discover the hidden qualities, stories, and emotional value of objects. Therefore, Bey is continuously busy analyzing the real qualities and hidden values of phenomena and things around us. He even analyses phenomena like dust or waiting, that no-one else is interested in but which could be of huge value - as soon as we understand how to use it. Being deeply interested in the emotional meaning of things, Bey creates new images and works that provoke thinking and discussions about the value of the contemporary production machine. Besides its plain functionality his conceptual work is part of the international discussion around the role of design and the designer.
