About

Sasj

Saskia Freeke is an artist, creative coder, interaction designer, visual designer and educator. Her art work focuses on structure, geometry and playfulness. A big part of her artistic practice is her ongoing daily art project that she started January 2015. Here she explores and experiments with generative patterns and animations daily. You can follow her daily art on Tumblr, Ello, Twitter or Instagram.

From her daily artworks she explores ways to make her work more physical. You can think of laser cut structures from wood, laser cut paper and printed designs.

Besides these graphical artworks, she is interested in creating novel, tangible interfaces. Her research focuses on the cultural aspect of the interface, on the space between the human and the machine. She is interested in exploring what kind of effect certain interactions and interfaces have, both on the human and the machine. She wants to create interactive installations that engage the user in playful ways to let them explore the machine and see the technology we are using daily in a different way.

Saskia has been a lecturer in Physical Computing at Goldsmiths, University of London and has taught in visual design at the University of the Arts Utrecht School for Games and Interaction.

Saskia works now on her own artistic practise, and as freelance interaction, visual designer and educator.
She’s open for new challenges.
