I am a multi-disciplinary artist and designer working and living in Helsinki.

I do what I do because I am restless, curious and nerdy. My anti-specialist approach affords me a unique vantage point and allows me to benefit from inter-disciplinary insights. My approach to multidisciplinary work is rooted in my background in graphic design. I am naturally biased towards prioritising visual expression, visual aesthetics, visual forms, and visual narratives in any creative process. Though I tend to employ many different methods - usually creating a method mashup along the way - I always stand by the classic trial and error approach to problem solving. Continuous re-iterations of work in progress are the best way to arrive at  design solutions, desirable artistic goals, or to enjoy a satisfactory making process. Adopting a non-expert approach and incorporating the point of view of non-experts within multidisciplinary iterative work is significant to me for making new discoveries and abandoning unconsciously inherited limitations.

I am interested in critical and speculative design & research, the relationship between technology and ecology, generative narratives, the aesthetic implications of living in highly mediatized and digitalized cultures, and the increasingly crucial role of the humanities (sociology, anthropology, psychology, history, linguistics) within the design and tech worlds.
