INTRO

As a graphic designer and digital artist I daily immerse myself into a personal relationship with technology. My interest is mainly based on the exploration of the digital wonderland I encounter while examining the digital interface from up close. By scrolling deeper and deeper into the digital 'rabbit hole'. Through the exploration of the interface and its limits and boundaries I try to find a loophole within this specific wonderland, which gives me the opportunity to interfere with it or to appropriate and re-contextiualize its verbal language ~outsourcing the media~. Thus I am capable to provide the possibility for the user to enter into an intimate relationship with this world from a potentially alienating 'scrolling' perspective.

From a strategic perspective I try to maintain the following rule of ~cheating is winning~; by first observing the interface and then finding a loophole to infiltrate within its own mechanism of providing. 

Winning from Technology / Digital Software Wonderland / Peculiar Unknown / Internet Metaphors / Reality Virtuality Physicality /  Failure to launch / Game Strategy Infastructure / Interactivity User / Outsourcing the media / Loopholes / Boundaries / Systems Mechanisms / Open-Source / Nature / Interface as method.
