I started my PhD research in January 2020 as part of the excellence cluster ‘Matters of Activity‘. In the project ‘Object Space Agency‘, I am looking into traditional Korean clothing – the ›Hanbok‹ – as an active matter and how the East Asian ontology embedded in the garment can trigger divergent ways of how digital objects exist. Before joining Humboldt University, I studied Fashion Design at Central Saint Martins in London, and Visual and Media Anthropology at the Freie Universität Berlin.
