Join me online this Sunday May 17, 2020 to participate in the Next Iterations.
Iterations consists of a series of artist residencies, exhibitions, reflection meetings and exchanges that take place between 2017 and 2020. Artists and cultural practitioners are welcomed in situations to experiment with and reflect on what the future of collectivity, sharing and working together in digital and networked contexts can look like.
Iterations supports the use of FLOSS software and open content licenses and encourages everybody to download anything you find on this site.

At the multinational corp, I don’t always get to join meetings where I need to be active. Sometimes, I might just be there in case there is a question for me. So when those meetings are remote, I found a new way to beat the feeling of wasting my time. I draw portraits of my colleagues in video conferences.
They’re still enough to make this quite easy. They don’t notice I’m actually drawing them. And while I stay focused on the conversation, my eyes, brain and hand relax at following these lines.
