Last week I - or at least a filmed version of me - was part of the exhibition "Brave New Design" organised by @ecume_studio in Paris.
With Caroline Guinet and Chira Valomini I had the chance to discuss about my practice, open-source design, my project Plantenna and our Treehouse project with Anna!
"The Signal Theremin is an electronic musical instrument allowing any player to hear and play with the Wi-Fi signal emitted by its phone. "
"How to build a simple bike trolley with repurposed material and hand tools to replace you car when going to the market? "
"Can we use the Internet to rethink our relationship with non-human-centered places? Plantenna 1.0 is a proposal to use a webcam and webchat as a respectful, distant & less extractive way to care about nature. "
"pressaletter.online is an experimental website that hosts a typography poster generator with a custom-made variable alphabet entirely developed from scratch with P5.js. "
"What are the limitations of digital images? This experimental website proposes to get under the pixels "
"In collaboration with Kris de Decker. We built an "Off-line Portal" to present Low-tech magazine's critical ideas on degrowth and the climate crisis through images from the blog. "
"In collaboration with Anna Mareschal de Charentenay, we explored the potential of tree-house building as a method to foster togetherness, (re)intergrate one's local environnement and think collaboratively. "
"Using the resources of the garden and its surrounding properties, this hut was designed to be easily dismantled and rebuilt according to the season."
"The publication is the outcome of an extensive investigation into the Prepper subculture online. The book acts as a guide to prepping and navigating survival-centered forums, but also offers a critical yet empathic look at the radical practices and ideology advertised by the members."
"In parallel with building a treehouse in Eindhoven, we started collecting and repurposing material from our local urban environment. This "foraging" practice resulted in a collaborative guide and manifesto for urban foraging."
"This transformed exercise bike prototype can produce up to 100W/h of human power to charge a battery, power a printer or a soldering iron. It also invites users to reflect on the energy consumption of their household appliances."
"As technology becomes increasingly complex and entangled with our lives, there is a need to take a close look at what lies behind the abstracted concept of “black box”."
