I'm a designer, researcher and amateur software developer.
My practice is rooted in the digital sphere and focuses on the design and development of websites with attention to experimental methods of connectivity, publishing, liveness and dissemination.
My research is currently focused on the accessibility, limitations and creative potential of using self-hosted and open-source software as well as the utopian worlds they bring with them. I enjoy coming across unconventional tools and unconventional uses of tools.
I'm currently part of Hackers & Designers, a non-profit workshop initiative in Amsterdam that stimulates collaboration across creative and technological disciplines through shared moments of hands-on learning.
I'm also part of the Office of Queer Affairs, a collective in the Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven that openly explores the involvement of the local queer community's perspective in the museum's curatorial practices by organising monthly book clubs and drag-ups within the institution's public spaces.
I recently completed my bachelor studies with my thesis How to Serve Your Trash to the Public Domain, a tutorial that proposes "recycling" unwanted files using a peer-to-peer protocol to reclaim one's agency on the Internet.
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.
