Mikaela Steby Stenfalk

Hello!

 

Mikaela Steby Stenfalk is a Swedish conceptual designer, researcher, architect and curator. She recently graduated from the Man & Communication department at Design Academy Eindhoven meanwhile curating her first exhibition at ArkDes, Sweden’s national museum for architecture and design. Her background lays in architecture at KTH Royal Institute of Technology and carpentry at Nyckelviksskolan in Stockholm. Since 2014, she has been involved in several R&D projects - connected through Design Academy Eindhoven - with companies such as Océ Canon and Nemo Science Center in Amsterdam.

 

The material I work with is information. I am interested in collecting information from different places and displaying them next to each other, to give a new perspective and a deeper understanding of today's world and its future.

 

My work focuses mainly on the exhibition as a medium while I continuously research situations where digital and physical spaces meet and intertwine.
