I take you with me to ‘The office garden’. The day starts at 9 and ends at 5 o’clock, and flexworking is possible everywhere. Climb the ladder till you reach the suspended ceiling and work your way up within the hierarchy of office existence. In the workplace, it’s always busy, busy, busy, so where can you find your inner peace when the ‘vrijmibo’ (Friday afternoon drink) is still a long way off?

I investigate office culture in a playful way. I shape my world through sculptures, a VR experience, performance and an installation.
