I could not believe my luck when I learned about Biota Beats. This project brings together art, science, and the communication of ideas through visuals. On top of that, it is all about the microbiome! Very happy to be involved with the amazing, multidisciplinary Street Bio team at EMW bookstore in Cambridge, USA.

From March until August 2018, the Stedelijk Museum in Breda, the Netherlands, held an exhibition called "True Beauty - the interface of Art and Science". Biota Beats was featured in this exhibition. It was fantastic to build my first interactive piece to be on display in a museum!

For the Biota Beats project, I worked on the question: "How to best visualize audio?" Different variations of music equalizers were explored. One of them was circular.

Streetnames are reflective of what we honor in society. Together with Leon de Korte at De Correspondent we analyzed all streetnames of Amsterdam, and asked specifically: what people do we honor by naming our streets after them?

Inspired by an article that recommended mapping your life on a line from the present moment until death. Also inspired by the general denial of death. How would you want to die, if you could choose?

When medical data hits close to home, it makes for a completely different experience. In creating my first interactive graph, I used data collected by my father over the past 10 years, tracking lab values that communicate blood levels: the single (illusion of) control during a rollercoaster decade.

The goal of this project was to learn R markdown. As a subject I chose an old topic I have been fascinated with: beautiful structures that appear when you let random walks, well, walk randomly.

The one thing we do not need reminders for...

It is shocking how little rest we give our phones. As if they do not need to recharge, reconnect with themselves, rethink their purpose!? Very happy and grateful to have this crazy family business of crafting little phone beds.
