Mediating Knowledge

I am interested in the close connection between knowledge and form. That is: how the forms – medium, genre, materials – which are used for inquiry into a subject matter, play very active and constituent roles in the understanding which is generated. Knowledge and form can not be separated. Meaning, medium and materiality go together.

I research and create multiple forms of knowledge by emergent and evocative experiments with written, visual and performative modes of expression. This takes on kaleidoscopic forms – textual, visual, performative and spatial.

In the mediation of experience communication and educational materials as diverse as clothing, digital handheld devices, and printed matter contribute to the understanding of natural and cultural phenomena.

Analytically my work is inspired by scholars such as Michel Serres, Donna Haraway, Bruno Latour, Annemarie Mol and John Law.
