is a conceptual designer and researcher, recently graduated from Design Academy Eindhoven.

The meetings, clashes and (mis)translations that happen between virtual and physical spaces deeply interest her. She sees these tensions as interesting errors, beautifully poetic, and often humorous.

Her conceptual work provides critical views on technology and culture, executed in various (often digital, sometimes ironically completely analogue) media.

Marijn is currently working on deepening her research skills and experience by studying Media Studies at Maastricht University.

Digital Landscapes video series

What started with a fascination of nature representations online, brought me to Instagram, where enormous amounts of snapshots of popular landmarks can be found. By machine learning these datasets of Lower Antelope Canyon (7.009 images), Kuang Si Falls (5.869 images) and Perito Moreno Glacier (5.954 images), Digital Lanscapes are created. The videos immerse the viewer into this endless digital landscape, that questions how our collective memories of natural sites are formed online.

Machine learning by Boris Smeenk.

Digital Landscapes is exhibited at the epicentre, Centre del Carme Cultura Contemporània Valenica, as part of the Wrong Biennale 2019.
