Multidisciplinary researcher, artist and designer currently based in Rotterdam.
Informed by discursive and participatory design and with an DIY/amateurist approach to digital and analogue media, my practice focuses on cities and the public space, particularly by exploring practices of commoning & infrastructuring, creative appropriation & subversion, and participation in the urban (futures) space.
I do this through workshop formats and collaborative experiences, design research and ethnography and new media art installations.
My work has been published in the Participatory Design Conference (PDC22) and showcased at Zagreb Contemporary Art Museum (MSU), WIP Festival, V2_ Lab for the Unstable Media, Treehouse NDSM, MozFest and Garage Rotterdam. I’ve collaborated with, among others, Humankind, Municipality of Rotterdam and Amsterdam, With Company, Extinction Rebellion Netherlands, Baltan Laboratories, Technical University Munich and EIT (European Institute of Technology).
Occasionally you can find me screenprinting and pasting posters around a wall near you as (de)conceptualise.
