About the artist
Sumeet Rohilla: ‘Art should comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable” a quote from Cesar A. Cruz. And this is exactly what Sumeet wants to achieve with art. In his work at ASML he explores, innovates and designs technologies for a better future. Sumeet is curious, open to new possibilities and is keen to learn from his experiences. His knowledge of the academic world and his strong background in biomedical physics research are a great help in devising and connecting scientific ideas. According to Sumeet, Eindhoven is not only a city of light, but also of design. It is bustling with design students and creatives from various fields. Something he finds very inspiring.
Katja Moors: Katja Moors grew up in the Eindhoven region. That is another reason to be proud to be a part of this fantastic project. ‘Because every project within ASML is special and different, GLOW has something extra special’, she explains. She has a positive energy and enjoys working with a team and getting to know her teammates better. You grow together and ideas become reality. For her, art is inspiration, relaxation and imagination.
Xuemei Yang: Art is about order and chaos, the fundamentals of how the universe works. She believes that is why we call the things we value ‘art’ It is a certain feeling that grows inside us and will manifest itself if you follow your inner voice. Xuemei sees life as a chance to do something great. She believes in the goodness of humanity and is passionate about technology and art. Her thoughts flow like butterflies. She finds inspiration in the things and people around her. She is proactive and follows her heart.
Willem Jan Grootjans: Willem Jan Grootjans is a software engineer at ASML. He is always looking for opportunities to use his technical mindset in non-obvious places, for instance in pieces of art. A few years ago he figured out that having the ability for artistic expression is a helpful counterpoint to his technical day job. ‘For me, art is an outlet with which I balance my highly technical work.’
Mohsen Mehrafrouz: Mohsen Mehrarouz is a software designer by day and a musician by night. Playing the guitar and developing computer programs happened to him almost at the same time around the age of 13. Over the past 20 years his passion for music and curiosity for technology has taken different forms. From making electronic music to singing opera. Nowadays, his artistic expression gets a new dimension with the combination of technology, like here: at Connecting your Love.
