ABOUT

technoflesh Studio is the design and research practice of Simone C Niquille.

Simone C Niquille is a designer and researcher. Through technoflesh Studio she produces films and writing that investigate computation as the new optics. Her work is concerned with vision technologies, the images they make and the worlds they create - from computer vision, 3d animation, computational photography to synthetic training datasets. Her work advocates for non-binary technology and against machine learning as a tool to validate and instrumentalize assumptions and reduce reality.

In 2023 Niquille initiated the parametric truth Lab at the Master Information Design at Design Academy Eindhoven, a space to annotate, document and review software beyond its immidiate functionality and focus on productivity. Since 2023 she organises a lecture series on technology and architecture at the Amsterdam Academy of Architecture and in 2024 is a tutor at Elisava Barcelona for the temporary Master in Algorithmic and Networked Photography. Niquille is a fellow in technology and storytelling at the Dutch Film Festival for 2024-2025.

Her work has been exhibited and published internationally. In 2016 she was a research fellow of Nieuwe Instituut Rotterdam and received the Talent Development Grant of Creative Industries NL. In 2018 she was recipient of the Housing The Human grant and commissioned contributor to the Dutch Pavilion at the 16th Venice Architecture Biennale (2018) with the work ‘Safety Measures’ on the entangled history of computer generated imagery, ergonomic software and standardised human measurements. She received the 2020 Pax Media Art Award and was a 2020 resident at La Becque while joining ECAL’s Master in Photography department as guest lecturer for the research project Automated Photography.

Niquille was a 2021-2023 Mellon Researcher at the Canadian Center for Architecture and is a contributor to [permanent beta], a research platform by the Fotomuseum Winterthur.

She holds a BFA in Graphic Design from Rhode Island School of Design and an MA in design from the Sandberg Instituut Amsterdam. technoflesh Studio is currently based in Amsterdam NL.
