Congratulations on winning Zealous Stories Design! Your work, Woodpecker, explores the possibility of replacing the bird species with artificial ones. What encouraged you to design this device?
I am very interested in seeing how my devices will interact with the environment for which they are designed. This always pushes me to finish my work.
You see your role as a mediator between the environment and your work. Are your observations of these interactions key to your practice?
Yes. I can’t wait to put them in the environment to see what will happen; will wildlife interact with them? What will people do if they see them? Until now I have had only good experiences with it, although there were some sad moments where the weather destroyed some of my work. But then it is just part of the interaction.
