My work consists of systematic conducted studies revealing mechanisms on valuation within our visual culture. I find inspiration from the computer science and work with deep learning, emotion and image recognition software.

Hereby the area where the computer and human meet is explored, the communication between the two and what new ways of seeing or behaving this can result in.

Bin-Packing Algorithm
Software. A bin-packing algorithm – normally used for the transport or 3d printing industry – is used on a dataset of classical sculptures. This algorithm can calculate the optimal – occupying as less space as possible – packaging of irregular objects in a container.

Working method:




Observation


Formulate a simple open question from a personal interest


Think of an interesting research methods suitable for the question


use methods from other
fields or new emerging technologies in a different way

↓ ↑


observe the visual effect (look for the visceral!)


Be aware that a clear research can be repeated


Believe simple ideas can produce complex thoughts


Allow yourself to be surprised by the outcome


it can result in multiple works


Be honest
