About:

Mindcloud is a blog created by Geert Lebens. After eight years of studying in the field of design, and his ever growing interest in it’s relation to art and technologies, Geert Lebens decided to start creating a very own field of expertise. His main interests are the relations of the interdisciplinary field of design, art and technology to human intelligence, thinking, acting and imagination. How do we perceive our physical surroundings and how does that influence our future behaviour, environment and ethics? He tempts to set up a cross media work field to explore and question these issues, or at least small bits at a time. His experience in graphic design, product design and writing/researching/editing will be the basic tools for his future creations.

Geert is interested in the visions, expertise and thoughts of other people and prefers working in interdisciplinary teams. Being around people with different expertises creates the opportunity for learning, expanding knowledge and gaining experience. His blog Mindcloud is a way of creating an open source library to publish his recent activities, growing interests and to share inspiration.

Feel free to get in touch when you are interested in collaboration or for sharing thoughts.
