As an artist I make systematic conducted studies revealing the mechanisms within our
visual culture by using quantitative research methods, at the moment being A/B testing, eye-tracking and image recognition software.
simple open question from a personal interest
an interesting research
methods suitable for the question
use methods from other
fields or new emerging technologies in a different way
observe the visual effect (look for the visceral!)
Be aware that a clear research can be repeated
Believe simple ideas can produce complex thoughts
Allow yourself to be surprised by the outcome
it can result in multiple works

Emotion recognition software analyse our emotions by deconstructing our facial expressions into temporal segments that produce the expression, called Action Units (AU - developed by prof. Paul Ekman) and deducting them into certain percentages of six basic emotion, happy, sad, angry, surprised, scared and disgusted. Together with actress Marina Miller Dessau and choreographer Marjolein Vogels all facial muscles in the face are being trained and deconstructed in 2018. This research resulted in multiple works.
The Facial Action Coding System (FACS) - is developed by prof. Paul Ekman and Wallace V. Friesen and published in 1978. In this system, 43 muscles in the face are deciphered, which together can make a legion amount of movements and almost infinite combinations.
