In my eyes, design is a process of observation, learning and understanding. Design Strategies can be described as a practice that can be applied in different fields. They can be tools for change, they can break structures and question conventions. With Design Strategies, I try out creative ways to analyze problems, to discuss them and to offer practical ideas. In my work I focus on participation, so that the
research and the concept emerge with those for which it’s meant to be. Design has the potential to make knowledge accessible by communicating its complexity with other
media and methods. I understand design as a sensual
language that transforms knowledge into a physical body. Thus, knowledge becomes tangible and invites the viewer to participate actively.
