1991 – 2021
I work on bridging different people with emerging futures. Started in Goldsmiths, University of London, continued on to co-found fragile.digital. We built brands, businesses and engagement. I also do some more artistic things when I have time.
In 2017 I developed an interest in rural market culture. Usually located in a remote location and spreading hectares those markets form a city infrastructure that comes to life once a week. Full of antique, pre-used and stolen goods, they form an alternative ecology where objects and buyers exist without corporate influence. I found this relationship very interesting in the context of sustainability and felt compelled to document these markets as a disappearing phenomenon.
For my graduation project at Goldsmiths University, I wanted to explore new ways for people to connect to their urban environments. For a while, I’ve been obsessed by the overview experienced by astronauts when they come back to earth. “If every person would gain this perspective, it would change us all”, as Dror Benshetrit accurately observed. Obviously, not all of us will have an opportunity to go to space, yet, I wanted to democratise the effects that it has. My proposal was to use underground tunnels as zoetropic devices so that we could turn a regular daily commute into a trip around the Planet Earth.
Once in a while, I pick up a brush since I still feel quite sentimental about the times I went to fine art school. For a long time, I was focused on portraiture, the stories and emotions that a silent, painted face can tell. I really enjoy the moments of observation and connection beyond words that such practice provides, but mostly keep those moments for myself.
