about the project

The liberating potential of the exercise is experimentally (re)discovered as a method to explore detours within a designing process. The creation and execution of exercises are used as tools to awaken a wondering and attentive look at our daily surroundings, resulting in imagery and textual content which is then processed into a graphic output.  


The publication – a ring binder – contains artistic research about the formulation of exercises, but also functions as a workspace and archive for these exercises.


On this digital platform, the exercises break out of their printed dimension. I invite you to participate and become a practitioner yourself.


Once you have completed an exercise, you will be given access to the private archive  where the results of all practitioners are collected. Your work will be added and displayed in this archive.  There is no specific medium required; drawing, designing, photography, sculpting, painting, writing... Everything is possible.


Choose an  exercise  down below , alert me through the  form  and get started! 


Looking forward to hearing from you, 



PS: Do you want to formulate your own exercise? Let me know your ideas via the  guest writer form .

Become a guest writer

thank you for your submission!


Become a guest writer and submit an exercise using this form. The exercise will then be included in the archive if it meets the following conditions:

1. Exercises are formulated as step-by-step instructions: step 1:..., step 2:....

2. Exercises are delineated by restrictions in subject, time, material, place, or collaboration.

3. Exercises are often most useful when there is a demand for documentation:       photos, video, text, audio recording... although this is not always the case.

4. Exercises are included within a category: at home, dialogue, ongoing, or on the road.

5. Exercises that were inspired by something or someone who can be named should mention this.
