Belgian author, creator of virtual spaces and moving images 

(based in Paris)

Growing up with the digital, I’ve seen firsthand the many failed attempts, trials, and errors that have shaped its evolution. Errors, glitches, and failures allow me to explore uncharted territories. I actively seek them out in my digital creations.

I’m the author of two philosophy books, Digressive Society and Humans and their Errors. These lifetime projects encapsulate my thoughts and digressions, continuously evolving with new essays and illustrations.

Humans and their Errors deals with most fundamental questions in life – existential and metaphysical – while Digressive Society is about our shared existence, cultural, economic and political issues. Separation between sense-making and shared existence is artificial of course, and the two books are intertwined.
