My practice examines our planetary material entanglements through hybrid design inquiries. I have recently gravitated towards designing tools, both as a mode of investigation and its outcome, with emphasis on the low-tech. The lines of my current research intersect at the notion of planetary boundaries, non-extractivism, and metabolic production.
Once a lapsed product designer from Wroclaw (PL), then an alumnus of Design Acadamy Eindhoven (2022), now practicing (erratically) as freelance designer and researcher based in Eindhoven (NL).
Within my practice, I investigate my own entanglement in material ecologies and prototype low-res strategies for living within planetary boundaries. This often happens through material-based inquires, and expresses itself in toolkits, protocols, production setups, objects, exhibitions, text, and other formulations. I tend to work towards outcomes that are non-prescriptive, auto-interrogatory, less-extractive, and ready to appropriate.
Lately, I have been exploring the notion of ‘metabolism’ in the context of design production and exhibition-making (with support of Creative Industries Fund NL). My ongoing and past collaborations include Katrin Hornek (A), envisions (NL), and Medialab Matadero.
