I am a media artist/director working with image and interaction. My central tool is computer vision and interactive storytelling and I am interested in how machines shape social relations. My artworks generate new narrative interactions between people, in which I explore the possibilities of human-machine-human collaboration. Scientific research on perception, vision and machine learning/artificial intelligence inspires me, as well as everyday observations about human life in the age of machines.
