Projects

I have worked in a number of research projects, that are listed in my cv. Many of these have been based on an applied research approach based on researching by design. Meanwhile, I also have participated in a number of pure productions – as well as productions with a departure from art.

I list all these projects and productions here chronologically, without making any distinction between the different contexts connected to my activities of making – as I see them as examples of different methods and methodologies.
