***

I am based in The Hague,NL since 2013. I started my graphic design study in the Hungarian Academy of Fine Arts, but I graduated from the Royal Academy of Arts, The Hague. My works can be located around the theme of anthropocene, posthuman, crisis. I think we live in a time of urgency. I believe in a research driven, post–disciplinary, slow and personal design practice. I work in various media in order to materialise hidden concepts, demystify ideologies, beliefs, unveil biases, fixations that has mistaken as truths, legal, absolute or unbreakable. I work for commissions as well as initiate own projects.
