NERD / DESIGNER / FUTURE EXPLORER
Eager collector, enthusiastic colour nerd, artistic experimenter and explorer of little things. My projects take their starting point in the belief that:
The world is a truly interesting place!
I work with wild experiments and systematic archives as a way of exploring colours, materials and senses in order to contribute to a sustainable and fascinating future.
My curiosity drives me to spend most of my time in the workshop collecting, documenting and experimenting with dyes, textiles, found objects, new materials, photography and future scenarios.
I work in the midst of art and design, never really knowing which is which, but allways with the mission to contribute to a more sustainable future.
