About Karin de Jong
"I love to design on the edge of art and technology, in a place where analogue and digital meet."
Karin de Jong (Veldhoven, 1997) graduated from the Academy for User Experience in Breda in 2019 with a degree in Communication & Multimedia Design.
As a person as well as a designer she has always been intrigued by the relationship she has with her body. Within her work she explores this relationship and tries to reclaim bodily autonomy as she believes that the things we design end up designing us. Besides, she combines her fascination for the human body with her interest in sustainability.
