On Saturday 27 May 2017, myself and Roland van Dierenconk will give a masterclass ‘Extracting Pigments From Algae’ at WAAG Society.
In this masterclass we will show participants what kind of pigments are secluded in algae and how they can be isolated. When the pigments are extracted, we will show them some applicabilities, like how to use them to make paint or ink. The methods we will show are applicable to organic matter in general, so participants can use their new found knowledge on basically anything mother nature provides.
I am happy to announce a new collaboration with Kirstie van Noort. Together we will develop new work for Dutch Invertuals, presented at the exibition ‘Harvest’ during Salone del Mobile 2017 in Milan.

At the ‘Fluid Matter’ Special on Wednesday 20 Januari 2017, myself and Federico Muffatto gave a masterclass at MU Artspace.
In this masterclass we showed participants what kind of pigments are secluded in algae and how they can be isolated. When the pigments are extracted, we showed them some applicabilities, like how to use them to make paint or ink. The methods we showed are applicable to organic matter in general, so participants can use their new found knowledge on basically anything mother nature provides.

As announced I am currently exhibiting my new work Estuary and my research project Genesis at MU Artspace. The exhibition is on show until February 26th, 2017.
The colors in the installation Estuary change over time. I have just reinstalled the installation, be sure to pass by and observe the beauty of decay, and the bloom of life that is happening as a result of the parameters set for the artwork. All the colors as shown in pictures are real and have not been altered by a filter or otherwise.
Genesis — Research
Im very happy and proud to say I am taking part in the BAD Award exhibition Fluid Matter at MU Artspace in Eindhoven, curated by Angelique Spaninks and William Myers. I will conduct the next step in my research and show photographs of Genesis, as well as a new installation called Estuary.

I was invited bij Mediamatic to give a presentation about the position of the artist as gatherer. A modern day bio-scavenger who conducts her research onsite and meticulously browses the environment for unique properties and versatility. I gave insight in my methodological research proces, illustrating it with my latest project Genesis and Estuary.

As a further research into the coloring proporties of living matter, I have gone on a trip to Iceland sildenafil citrate 100mg tab. In two weeks I discovered everything about the geology of this very special island and I am currently developing my findings into a new body of work. See more photographs of this research trip on Instagram.
I was very happy to be accepted to Open Set Summer School 2016 with the generous support of Creative Industries Fund NL. Two weeks straight filled with workshops and lectures, by a fine selection of the most inspiring artists and designers in the field today. The group was as diverse as the program, with me being the only Dutch attendee. International relations were being explored, one of which led up to a new collaboration for Dutch Design Week 2016.
I attended workshops/lectures by Abake & Sebastiaan de Groes, Joanna van der Zanden, Studio Dumbar – Liza Enebeis, Bruno Setola & Rejane dal Bello, Thought Collider, Bik van der Pol, Paul Soulellis, Young Hae Chang Heavy Industries and Rick Poynor & Els Kuijpers.
