Stitch My Brain

Stitch My - Your Brain are both, a personal investigation and a public project into the hand-brain-creativity connection. Stitch My Brain are soft sculptures and series of art prints. Stitch Your Brain is an international project documented on a website, curated exhibitions and a book, to be published in 2023. The stitched works of about 300 participants are self-portraits, projecting ideas, global concerns and personal emotions on to the grey matter.

The intelligence of the hand

Artistic research in two projects: 

Stitch Your Brain and

Weeflab in Amsterdam, founded in 2016. 

Weaving, taken out of its traditional context is a contemporary artform. Weaving has an intellectual and a manual side, applying the material knowledge of hands, imagination and digital technology. The hand is the interface and in this way the weaver is a protagonist of our times, especially in the experience of time itself.
