I'm an information designer working with dynamic and screen based media. My work is process based and often results in generative and/or semi-autonomous software and installations. The design process extends from the work's visual appearance to the editorial structure, all the way into the depth of the software and the subroutines it exists of. I believe form, function and intention are interrelated. Therefore a project is a constant back and forth movement between designing and programming. I'm interested in exploring the boundaries between interactive media and the social, virtual and physical space. My work is object oriented in terms of development (object oriented programming) and perspective (the relationship with the physical object). This has resulted in projects connecting computers to books, performances, exhibitions, art in public space, air conditioners, and objects of all sorts.

I received a BA in Graphic Design followed by a residency at the Jan van Eyck Academy before starting a design studio in 2006. I teach information and interaction design at the Arnhem School of Art and Design.
