At Constant vzw his focus is mainly on Open Source Video. Constant is an interdisciplinary workspace, established in Brussels in 1997. It is dedicated to the culture and ethics of the Web and electronic media. The artistic practice of Constant is inspired by the way in which technological infrastructures, data exchange and software influence our daily lives.
