Piet Zwart Institute
Birgit works as a freelancer with interactive and audiovisual media and code. Within her research she examines the impact of online/offline networks on our everyday lives. She deconstructs known structures of interaction with media and experiments with them in unusual and playful contexts. Her projects often combine the straightforwardness of code and the unpredictability of human behaviour, and try to create a space for reflection on the tools we use and the media we become dependent on. Her works include a dating-like website built on grocery shopping data, an alternative map of Rotterdam based on people's window decorations, and a phone booth through which the Internet can call passersby.
