Time travel 101

By Maarten van Sluijs - Theme - 4 October 2023

As much as we try to do things right, making mistakes is inevitable in life, and while we try not to, it is hard to live without regrets. So, what if you could go back in time and stop yourself from doing that one stupid thing, or maybe more interestingly, do things you otherwise wouldn’t have. Time travel is a concept that while probably impossible, has enamored mankind for millennia. In our modern-day culture, it is quite a common appearance in the media. Of course, movies like “Back to the Future” spring to mind, but also in music like “Tijdmachine” by Dio, and books like the “Harry Potter” series. To help my fellow Intermaatjes I’ve decided to take a deep dive into the concept of time travel and share with you some of my results, so that hopefully in the future you might come back and live regret free. So welcome all, class of 2023, to Time Travel 101.

What will food be like in the future?

By Jasmijn Brouwer - Theme - 19 September 2023

To end the success of our last semester's theme 'Of the map', Intermania went to Antwerp. Of course, this trip did not only include drinking Belgian beers but also included an informative trip to the MAS. This museum had an exhibition called 'A la carte', which fits the 'of the map' theme perfectly. This article is based on that exhibition and focuses on the future of food. Will we go back to the old ways or innovate to a new normal? Let's include this semester's theme as well and go 'back to the future'!

Creating new Intermate hit songs using AI

By Morris Boers - Theme - 7 November 2022

Within intermate there exists a very specific and sometimes strange culture. Together with this culture also a very specific sub genre of music is intertwined. For an outsider it is hard to grasp why this music is so popular within Intermate and it is even harder to find new music that could fit within this genre. That's why Morris went researching whether an AI algorithm could capture this music genre and create new Intermate hit songs.

By - - Theme - 14 June 2022

Mijn vader was degene die mij kunst al van kleins af aan bijbracht. Hij was zelf ook wel een kunstenaar: hij speelde in tientallen bandjes, componeerde zijn eigen muziek, schilderde, en schreef liedjes & gedichtjes. Zijn gedichtjes hadden iets speciaals: een twist op het einde. Iets onverwachts waar je van moest lachen of waar je raar van opkeek. Net als voor mijn vader, staat kunst dichtbij me. Voor deze keer, kies ik gedichtjes. Hier zijn 3 gedichtjes met mijn vader als inspiratiebron, waarvan ik hoop dat je moet lachen, je raar op kijkt of je gewoonweg blij wordt. Want dat werd ik van de zijne.
