Hi, I’m Sjef van Gaalen
I’m a design researcher working in the emergent field between futures studies and design. My work uses speculative and participatory methods to explore alternative futures and couple them to strategic objectives, with a focus on multi-species perspectives and regenerative ecologies.
I’m a co-conspirator in the Zoöp Project, where we’re working on new type of cooperative legal entity that offers membership to humans as well as multi-species ecological communities. I’m also an Advisory Commission member for the Creative Industries Fund NL Digital Culture program and an associate of the Gr1p foundation, dedicated to making technical, political and cultural understanding of our digital society accessible.
