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 want to know more, 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 editor of the critical maker’s reader: learning with technology (call for contributions is open until December 14th) with Letizia Chiappini, which will be published by the Institute of Network Cultures late 2019. I work with students on related practices and topics in the interdisciplinary undergraduate research course Minor Makers Lab: Designing Difference which I developed and coordinate with Shirley Niemans.
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 my work home: the Visual Methodologies Collective at the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences. A new research group headed by dr. Sabine Niederer, that is dedicated to the study and production of visual materials and formats for applied and collaborative research.
