june - sept Weeflab @ National Museum of Antiquities
Weeflab _ Amsterdam Noordexplores contemporary weaving with a focus on both
making and critical reflection, i.e. the weaver as the protagonist of our times.
Weeflab is based on:
A sustainable agenda and manual skills:
weaving on hand- and computer-controlled looms,
printmaking, material sensitivity and dexterity.
Weeflab is informed by a hybrid background of art and science:
spatial weaving and anatomy, layered prints and 3D growth,
textiles and tissue, grids and microscope.
Practice-based investigation about the hand-brain-axis and neurocognitive aspects in creativity.
Stitch Your Brain project
lecture at KNAW, Royal Academy of Sciences

Informed by a theoretical background and my own studio practice I write about artist’s techniques and materials.
