Questions & answers

Can you describe your daily practice? 
My work is deeply rooted in the digital domain but always connects with physical or social space. I design and produce interactive data visualisations and data installations ranging from microscopic to architectural in scale. I use code, pixels and 3D printers to describe the world. I reflect on and write about digital culture. I initiate and participate in research projects and work with clients to design and produce work that connects the digital realm with social and physical space. I teach Information Design and Interactive Architecture at the Arnhem school of art and design.
What are you most proud of?  
Using datavisualization to make the invisible imaginable.
What's your ambition? 
Contribute to a digital culture that is driven by design, arts and humanities rather than just technology.
