SHINE is a collaborative project with writer Alex Bennett showing how immaterial excess destabilises contemporary relations to the digital screen and narcissistic inclinations. By manifesting shine in an elusive, digital world, this project aims to critically reflect on the seduction of shininess and its immaterial effects.

  • I am a 2D/3D designer. My research practice revolves around the discourse and relevance of materiality in the ubiquitous digital realm. I am particulary interested in how tactility can be visualised digitally and how materiality communicates in order to affect perception, visuality and subjectivity. With a background in graphic design and social interventions, I am passionate about working across multiple media, generating print, 3D and film works.
