Ohh, finally an update from my side!
Things have been rather hectic the last couple months: I moved to a new place, moved my studio (again…), and I started working on 2 new projects. Hence the silence on this blog.
Also my website needs a major update, but hey, I’m working on it! (;
One of the other things that have been going on behind the scenes is that the Design My Privacy exhibition (featuring my project Rogier) is travelling to Z33 in Hasselt, Belgium! Yay!
The show opens next Saturday at 19:30hr. Insert lazy copy-paste from the Z33 website:

Design my Privacy
Nowadays, we continually share data: a message via WhatsApp, a picture on Instagram, an update on Facebook or an e-mail through Gmail. With whom do we really share this data? And how can we make sure that our personal data stay strictly personal?
This exhibition addresses issues of online privacy and digital surveillance. Next to several historical examples of encrypting, ‘Design my Privacy’ also shows some surprising contemporary strategies by more than 35 young designers and artists to maintain control over our data.

Yes, I’m calling the then 17-year-old Rogier a project now. The former title in Dutch wasn’t really working for me anymore. ‘De drie maanden uit het leven van Rogier’, similar to the title of the book, didn’t really do the trick on my website anymore.
I was doing a google search via Safari (where I’m not logged in on any Google- or other account) and came across this blog post by Irene about my project:
I like it! She really understood the project from what I read in the blog post, which is always nice. I haven’t come across hateful blog posts yet, by the way (but lots of Tweets with mild threats).
(Unfortunately for the non-Dutch readers, the blog post is in Dutch only)
Last Friday I had an interview with Rogier (from my latest project) and Omroep Brabant, a local tv and radio station.
