About

After my art studies I, rat, got myself an old factory loom and started working on a large variety of projects in which human nature and the properties of weaving continuously intermingle.

My work deals with the act of segregating and unifying. Acts that are inherent to the technique of weaving. It results in abstract weaves, in which color, structure, material, shape and size are part of my vocabulary.

I am embarked on a timeless project called rattus sapiens, in which the rat plays a major role to review human nature. I call myself a rat to be able to relate to myself as an altruistic and (not or) egoistic creature. In my opinion these habits are interwoven. I am weaving with real rat tails combined with wool and silk. The weaves are expressions of bridging the moral divide.

At the Rietveldacademie I manage the weaving workshop and teach students weaving.
