As a designer I am focusing on the quality of materiality in relation of the origin of crafts and production techniques. I belief it is important to question how and why things are developed, if you understand how the basis has been formed you can take steps to develop further. I find the balance between the physical experiment into shape, color, tactility, scale and detail very interesting. During this research process I work closely together with the surroundings, makers and industry. They take me into their specialisation and I analyse, practice, collect, structure and document this process in a visual manner as a design. The medium is free; it can be a film, series of photo’s, product, installation or space.
