I'm a designer, researcher and software developer based in Amsterdam.
My practice is rooted in the digital sphere and focuses on the development of on-and-offline sites for connectivity and exchange. I work on projects that aim to make visible the processes, tools and mechanisms that co-constitute them and generate experimental methods of liveness and dissemination, as facilitated by the sensitivities of free, libre, and open-source software.
I am currently a member of Hackers & Designers, a non-profit workshop cooperative based in Amsterdam that stimulates collaboration across creative and technological practices through shared moments of hands-on learning, collective tool-building, and trans-disciplinary research trajectories.
I am also part of the Office of Queer Affairs, a collective body in the Van Abbemuseum that embeds and entangles the perspectives of Eindhoven's queer community into the museum's curatorial practices. Together we organise (ir)regular transmedial interventions within the institution's public spaces.
On August 4, 2020, I joined OH4L, a cohort of historians and cultural athropologists based in Beirut who are attempting to explore, through a queer and feminist lens, the techno-cultural sensitivities and challenges of building a digital oral archive of testimonies connected to current and future socio-political happenings in Lebanon.
Media of the Day: This is a collection of images that I (1) find interesting, (2) want to look at again and (3) think you should see. The images are most of the time found, downloaded or screenshot. Occasionally, they are my own work.
