About me
I'm a designer, researcher and writer. I'm interested in culture at the fringes or outside of what's considered 'the mainstream' and it's position in contrast to popular culture. Therefore, I choose to actively engage in projects that I understand as radical, honest and critical.

  • What I've Learned, Interview with Job van Lieshout
    What I've Learned, Interview with Job van LieshoutPublished by Frame Magazine, Sept 2015 The following text resulted from an interview with artist Job van Lieshout and was published as part of the series 'What I've Learned' by Frame Magazine.

Gaps within urban structures enable users to step out of the role of being solely ‘consumers’ to becoming actors who produce from personal convictions and individual subjectivities. The ‘loophole’ I’ve chosen to explore within this project revolves around the distribution system of supermarkets and making unsold produce accessible. Rather than working closely with distributors I am exploring methods and strategies for individuals to become active taking advantage of freely accessible materials to transform them into objects of use value. Through the discovery of value in ‘low quality materials’ which are currently discarded, this project counters the economic logic we, as consumers, producers and distributors have gotten used to.
