I discovered Mediamatic through my intrigue for alternative sustainable and agricultural research, with a focus on multidisciplinary methodologies. I want to explore how we can build a robust sustainable food system and support the transition from a linear intensive consumerist society to one of positive circular economic and ecological impact, in line with Amsterdam’s 2050 proposal.

Through this internship at Mediamatic, I wish to expand my practical knowledge of aquaponic systems and horticulture, while learning about the societal implications and feasibility to incorporate aquaponic techniques within mainstream food production.
