  • We amputate ourselves when we create digitally. The sense of touch and spatial manipulation given from our hands and bodies have no connection to computers. By settling for computer interaction based on pictures behind glass, by technology bypassing the body and not being part of the physical environment, we slowly engender a future of immobility.

    Yet we have an entire body at our command, why would we not use it?

    I engineer systems that utilize the tactility of my hands as much as the logic of my mind, working between coding and painting in the same session, using technology to build a more immediate, improvised and natural environment. Escaping the paralysis of the screen to make a creative process based on intuition and feeling, assisted with technology.

    These systems are the drive of my work; to develop a dynamic medium that we can see, feel and manipulate and to create works that draw on this wealth of untapped potential of human capability. Technology to bring us closer to reality, instead of propelling us away.
