STEIM Artistic Direction (2007-2012)

Between 2007- 2012, I was responsible for the creative and artistic content of STEIM, Studio for Electro-Instrumental Music, Amsterdam. During this time, I produced, developed, and advised more than 80 artist in residency projects, and curated more than 120 programs featuring STEIM related work around the world including the U.S., Korea, Japan, Poland, Germany, France, Indonesia, and the U.K. Together with Vivian W Lin and Krisitina Andersen, the STEIM video & photo archive was initiated. In 2011, I curated and produced Patterns + Pleasure Festival at the Frascati Theater in Amsterdam. The following year, working together with the same designer from the Patterns + Pleasure Festival, we launched STEIM's new design identity which included a new logo and website.
