Michelle Vossen is a (fashion) designer and artist from Arnhem. Technology and machines fascinate her, especially when they do not function as expected. She works at the intersection of the digital and the physical. She uses electronic and digital image manipulation to produce designs and prints, uses a variety of digital fabrication methods and frequently experiments with traditional and future crafts. Michelle likes technology that is absurd, machines that are erratic, and software that is used outside of its intended context. Machine-made doesn't equal perfection, because a lot can go wrong: that unpredictability is what makes it so valuable. This ghost in the machine is at the heart of what she does. She is an advocate of greater collaboration between artists and machines. A machine is not just an instrument: it can be a partner in the process, making random suggestions.
