I'm interested in the interplay between design and programming. By doing both, a tight relationship between form and function arises.

A recurring theme in the work is the system. The spectator, reader, visitor moves in a fixed structure, a collection of rules. Inside this system, he or she has certain restrictions and freedoms, space for intuition. This gives new insights, but can also be alienating and humoristic. The contribution of people causes the works to grow in sometimes unpredictable ways.

I studied graphic design at the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam. At this moment, I'm doing the Master Interactive Media & Environments at the Frank Mohr Instituut (Academie Minerva) in Groningen.
