I studied creative writing in a small and very boring city and hold a degree as a cultural scientist. Now I live in a big city and have based my work at the intersection between literature, art and technology to set up interactive installations and immersive text experiences. My practice also includes performances, editing and thinking about Cities. I lately started doing this with endboss.

Call for ideas 2019

th/ought/s to a-void


FINAL_FINAL | First dpr-barcelona Writing Grant.
This will be a non-linear & aleatory text tissue to explore ideas as open territories.

Type of project
  • Next alliances

I want to create a non-linear and multi-layered text tissue around six different ideas. To get beneath their surface & to turn them into actual interfaces that are not only thought-provoking templates, but where the place between the lines becomes a location for associative contemplation.
The reading experience will be similar to exploring a city without using a map: you will stroll around & drift through the lines, get attracted & repelled by different things and occasionally linger somewhere. The layers will i.a. contain corresponding & interfering references from other cultural disciplines & practices. The basic layer will be an interview frame set with similar questions for each idea contributed.
It will work like a “Zettelkasten”. This text approach will not offer a conclusion, but rather open up new thinking spaces by leaving some voids & by keeping the text and the reader in movement. And it will add some poetry, which is much needed for any future. Not just architectures’.
