A visual artist based in the Netherlands, motivated by a resonance with rippled structures in the natural landscape, currently developing 'Musculo-vegetal'. This project embodies analogous research that explores the similarities between fibers in plants and human muscles tissues.

An Inner-act

An inner-act is an exploration of the analogy of protein fibers found in vegetables to those within human muscle tissues. A discovery in the relation between food and muscles both in terms of nutrition and energy, but also for the material likeness as fibers. The composition seeks to find an essence of culture within nature by bringing equal position to non-human lifeforms that together make up a ecosystem in which we inner-act. The research is conceptualized in a second skin, which brings the inner to the outer while acting as a mirror to human beholders.
