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.
Doing writing my final master’s thesis
