Dutch designer with a fascination for urban structures and abandonment exploration.

Public space is a fascinating domain. Belonging simultaneously to everybody and nobody, we all make use of it, but none of us can claim ownership. It’s a territory with indistinct, dynamic boundaries where we experience unexpected encounters & confrontations, as it brings people together who would not necessarily interact. Despite the constraints which accompany such a varying environment, it also provides a platform with ample opportunities for diverse activities and ways to express oneself. I am intrigued to see how people create identity, not only in their appearance, but through their actions and the everlasting urge to personalize public space. People leave more traces than they are aware of, creating urban patterns: the city as a visual system in which we all play a part. Exploring this sphere on a visual as well as on a social level is a great base of inspiration for me.
