Hello! I am Markel, a transition designer currently based in Barcelona. For the past couple of years I have worked with inèdit and co-founded HOLON in search of making design central of our collective strategy for these times of transitions.
In april 2019 I decided to start a sabbatical looking for new questions, tools, frameworks, ways of doing and of being that might help me iterate what does it mean to be a good ancestor.
I am interested in arts (performing, photography, audiovisuals, generative art…) and how to build bridges for bringing them in to everyday life like in Performing Transitions project.
