Welcome!

I am an artist, designer and workshop trainer interested in technology, digital media and culture.
On this website I show some of my commercial and artistic projects, provide educational material and information about myself.
Please don't hesitate to contact me, if you are interested in an Arduino or Processing workshop.

27. December 2010
I took some photographs for one of my arduino workshops, which I would like to share.
