  • Surfing the disseration: Together with Mediamatic Lab I made an experimental environment which facilitates surfing through the dissertation. The dissertation was loaded into a database on paragraph level. As author of the text I attributed metadata to every paragraph. As result, one can surf through the dissertation and it still makes sense.

  • Collaborative research platform Being-Here: Publishes ongoing research into witnessed and mediated presence and creates a collaborative research platform at the same time. Interdisciplinary research between profesisonal knowledge, artist research and academic papers are published in relation to one another. As of 2012 the European Institute of Technology assists in further developing this concept.

  • Witnessed Presence and Systems Engineering: On this site the source material is gathered and presented of an interdisciplinary exploratory study into Witnessed Presence. It shows 20 in-depth interviews with people from India, Great Britain and the Netherlands who are thinking out loud about how their personal and professional practice has changed because of technology. Coming from a variety of disciplines they elaborate first insights in fundamental dynamics of social structures in networked contexts. The site includes film fragments of the interviews. Also the work of artists that contributed to the research is briefly discussed here.

  • With the company Driebit in Amsterdam, I have been designing a shared research environment in which researchers form different disciplines can work together with stakeholders and students. The open research environment includes workspaces, a shared research environment and internet publication. It includes the possibilities to give feedback to each other. The software we use is Ginger, a next version of Anymeta. A first version was developed for TU Delft. A final version is launched in June 2018 for the city of Amsterdam
