You landed on the page of a creative practitioner/researcher/educator* whose current focus goes towards collaborative creative practices on the intersections of technology and critical pedagogy (across the fields of design, art, engineering and humanities). I have given myself a little break from storytelling in detail here, so this page is under construction. Still, here’s a quick run-through of the things I currently dedicate my time to. If you are interested, do get in touch!!
The Body Recovery Unit is an arts-based feminist research group where Alexandra Jønsson and I work with healthcare practitioners, activists and community groups in London to look at the ways in which logics and demands of data-driven health care reform impact the body, everyday practices and relationships on UK maternity wards.
I’m also working on putting together a “reader”, or edited book on critical making and post-digital collaborative practices in education with support of the Institute of Network Cultures. I work with students on related practices and topics in the interdisciplinary undergraduate research course Makers Lab: Designing Difference which I developed with Shirley Niemans and many others.
And lastly, I’m involved in a variety of projects with my close colleagues and collaborators (who also work with me on the projects mentioned above!) at the Visual Methodologies Collective at the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences. A new research group headed by dr. Sabine Niederer, that dedicates itself to the study and production of visual materials and formats for applied and collaborative research.
