I am a creative researcher and educator. My practice and thought, indistinguishible from one another, are transdisciplinar —always in an urge to weave deeper meanings and find unlikely connections. As a researcher, I am interested in the intersection between design and contemporary art as a rich way to explore pressing social and cultural issues. My aim is ultimately to create —conceptually and/or physically— spaces of encounter, places to be together. I often work with text and other physical media; in my latest work, I explored the creation of spaces for critically being together as a response to the individual anxieties of contemporary culture. I love to share my findings and reflections with my students to shake their minds a bit.
