Background

I have a great passion for artistic doing, and that is what has guided me in life. My artistic career started with producing backdrops and big wall paintings for music festivals, and with professional photography, where I learnt the art of working with light and the analog process in a colour photolab. 

After graduating in 2005 from the Interaction design programme (Ixd) with my project about hybrid learning in pre-school, I started to work with applied research at UID where I got to explore inclusive design, service design and participatory design. I then started to get more involved in teaching at UID. 

I have always made sure to spend time to work with artistic expressions, like graphic papers. This has been beneficial to identify the artistic doing that is found in the process of designing. In my artistic development, I'm interested in the condensed moment of artistic doing. In one artistic development work, I explored the procedure of colour combinations, where I explored how inspiration comes in to play.

What I do at UID

I teach in courses for single subject courses (SSC), the Bachelor programme in Industrial design (BFA) and Advanced product design (APD) and Interaction design (IxD). My interest lies in finding ways to express and explore artistic process, and that is something that I enjoy working on together with students.

In addition, I work as an international contact person, a role in which I get to see more of what industrial design education looks like around the world.

Talk to me about

Your experience of being a student at UID, how you develop your artistic capability or just anything, like driving a dog sledge. Of course, if you would like to study abroad or if you are an exchange student, I'm an international contact person that might be able to help you out.
