I’m fascinated by electronics, robotics, machines and code. With these four ingredients I make work that gives a new perspective on technologies. The works I make question these technologies on different levels. I question the function and moral impact of new technologies. What is a clock and how does it shape our live? Almost all new technologies are virtually hidden for our human senses, we don’t see how a AI works, nor do we see the satellites orbiting the earth. Nowadays every technologie is nicely packaged in a black box. In my work I open this box and make these technologies sensible and understandable.



Together with Ibo Ibelings and Hanneke Klaver we where part of the Todays Art festival in Den Haag (The Hague). We made Wifibles for the exhibition. Wifibles are small wearable devices that broadcast WiFi. We where using raspberry pi zero w’s for this project. The Pi’s where configured as access points and we wrote software to make it act as a captive portal. The Wifibles where used as carriers for video-work from Rebecca Fries and Aram Bartholl . When in range of the Wifible’s wifi-signal you could connect to the access point, then a video-piece was exhibited to you through the browser.

What is it like to be a Mouse
What is it like to be a Mouse is an installation that questions the implementation of smart- technologies in household items. The installation makes the visitor feel like a computer mouse by utilising a vr-headset and a real, working, computer mouse. This piece was in Hub-Berlin as well as in Spektrum Berlin. I worked on this piece together with So Kanno
