Details

Title Art Probing as Explorative Method
Person and role
Description I work as both an artist and a researcher, sometimes combining the activities. As an artist I create works that explore foremost imaginaries, media-related practices and human experiences of technology. My art is positioned in the borderland to my work as an ethnologist, cultural analyst and a scholar of digital cultures. I use my research partly to spur artistic concepts, which means that my artworks have often emanated from research questions. This work can subsequently be used as something I call art probes. These are used together with different clients to deal with complex questions, design issues and uncertainty. The art probes can also be used as inspiration and material for further research.
