An Ode To Doubt
'An Ode To Doubt' is a critical revaluation of 'dubious' traits, like uncertainty, ambivalence, contradiction and inconsistency, that society often considers to be inadequate and unconvincing. In reaction to this negative reputation, Mentaxis – the design practice of Loes Claessens and Kirsten Spruit – has developed a new mentality which acknowledges the complexity and ephemerality of the contemporary metamodern Zeitgeist, and embraces doubt as a mode of progress. To exercise and spread this mentality, we literally put doubt in the spotlight by performing as a band.
We are Mentaxis.
Backstage we are designers.
On stage we are a band.
