Born 1979 in Netherlands. Artist.

Trained as a video artist, his work has recently focused on the Internet and re-contextualizing found material. He maintains a small collection of web pages -- or “readymades,” as he calls them -- united by their common status as empty corners of the Internet. They are junkyards of sponsored links, error messages, and domains for sale that no one wants to buy. His readymades demonstrate his interest in what might be called “default” style -- the bland tables of sans serif text and soulless stock photography that frame ads for some of the most common search terms (auto insurance, cheap airline tickets, pornography), baring the underbelly of the internet’s popular use. He's also a teacher at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy, and curates several events in Amsterdam, such as the periodically held Lost and Found evenings, and the recently finished exhibition Contemporary Semantics Beta in Arti et Amicitiae.

Lives in Berlin and Amsterdam.
