We tend to get caught up in the present and forget the 200,000 years of humankind history. I find great inspiration for my work in previous cultures, rituals and artifacts.
Masks bring out the magic in theater, especially neutral ones. The body can express so much when voice and facial expressions are eliminated. A perfect combination of emotion, movement and absurdity.
The stories that shape our experiences are a great source of inspiration. I am interested in learning from existing creative content and methods in literature and storytelling for designing new forms of interaction with technology.
The ambiguity of dance evokes strong emotions and great discussions. I set out to implement some of the ambiguity of motion in my work.
