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.

In the Cloud(s) video 1:14 min

The metaphorical language that is used to describe the cloud, starting with the word ‘the cloud’ itself, hides aspects of this very real, material and political entity. In the Cloud(s) brings the viewer inside this projected idea of the cloud, where serene imagery is contrasted by harhs abstract sounds. The cloud's aspects, such as it's energy use, cloud organised protests disrupted by internet shutdown and the military origin of the cloud's infrastructure, are hinted at, yet never fully disclosed.
