7.1 Windows Without a View, graduation project, Windows Without a View explores the bedroom as the new office cubicle, a place where people inexhaustibly complete HIT's* as digital sweatshop workers or live stream their sleep, altogether restlessly delving into potential new revenues of sleep.

7.2 The True Millennium Bug (A loophole in time), bachelor thesis.
The true millennium bug; the first and last time I experienced collective feat and distrust of technology.
The original Millennium Bug turned out to be a trivial bug causing small scale involuntary time travel, the true Millennium Bug turns out to be the endless pursuit of virtual happiness with efficiency, comfort and control as ruling sovereign goods.
The True Millennium Bug is a research on the exploitation of sleep, looking into current efforts to reclaim the missing third of our lives, and the corporate potential of this loophole in time.

Edition: 5 copies. *(Human Intelligence Task, Amazon Mechanical Turk)

6.1 An Overtaken Future, part of the exhibition 'Declaring Reason' at Museum Meermanno in The Hague, Joan Derk van der Capellen tot den
Pol's motivation to write the pamphlet 'Aan het volk van Nederland' is strongly based on a sense of nostalgia, fondly referring to the period of Batavian settlement.
Rudi van Delden and Jan Egbers take this as a starting point to critically address contemporary politicians nostalgia for the industrialized 1960s.
It seems that in todays political landscape, both the left and right look back on a time when the ever-increasing privatization of today was still far away and sovereignty was considered authority rather than responsibility.
The question remains as to what is left out of the picture when longing for the past is being put to use as a political instrument?

5.2 The Animal On and Offline, interactive long read, essay by Ana Teixeira Pinto.
In her essay Teixeira talks about the relationship between human, animal, and machine.
For animals, there is clearly a lot at stake on
whether they can pass the battery of Turing test to which they are continually subjected (The Turing test was a experiment by Alan Turing testing if computers could perform human intelligence).
Animals are constantly excluded under the elusive excuses like, they feel no pain, or, a mode of existence that does not think itself.
Is something only human if it has the power to voice itself in fluent English?
In this long read I experimented with the roleplay of these three modes, the human is now treated as an animal, by the machine.
