• With a main interest in the systems, situations, and services people find themselves in, my focus is to find out how we can design new ways of living and working together. Through topics like public space, education, policy making, and business innovation, design is a service that has to rediscover its position in society. A designer has to be a person with the ability to redefine the relations between situations, systems, objects, materials and services in our society. Therefor I responds to what I see, hear and feel, offers solutions, alternatives and sometimes provokes with a comment.

  • Smithfield memory

    How to show the work and busyness of the night around the Smithfield’s meat market. During the day there is nothing going on, but when you come there in the night the place is swarming with man in white coats covered by blood, and white vans are parked all around the place.

    Showing the absence of the work done in the night. TIRE tracks representing the, in the night so present, white vans that disappear in the morning to bring away the meat. Red that represent the blood and meat that was present during the night but left in the early hours. Fading red tire tracks, the nightly life driving away.

    The subtle presence of the night story during the day. A small hint of a happening that normally is not noticed. Or just a question of to which vehicle these tire tracks belong.
