Studying in painting, then a BA in textile design, has led me, as strange as it seems, to design interactions, the place to be!

We all have hopes that will never be realized, my work is all about these everyday life frustrations, and the way we can surpass them. The space between what could be done and what we dream is my main concern.

Technologies surround us and create new hopes and frustrations that we have to face.

How do our human feelings evolve in this new context? How can we express human reactions to technologies? How have beliefs and customs changed through our frustrations?

How can I be an astronaut in my living-room and how can I generate Dark Energy in my kitchen sink?!
