My home is my castle, that is a feeling I have since I was a kid playing in my room, and after the last few months this only feels truer. Being distraction-free at home, although forced, and the pressure of starting a new business, have made me focus.
This is the first quarantine I experience, and it has been bizarre… So I created a collage of the places where I have been spending most of my time, and tried to give it that feeling of apparent normality, until you look closer.
In the beginning of the year I started freelancing as a Creative Technologist. Since then, somewhere between the office and the backyard is where I have spent most of my time, either working on my own projects or relaxing outside, inside.
My name is Luis Ferreira and I like to bring ideas to life. I do this with a pencil, a cooking pan, a saw, or my favorite, technology. That is my tool of choice to create experiences that amaze.
I left Portugal after finishing my studies in Computer Engineering, and moved to Eindhoven searching for new experiences. There I worked in the fields of robotics, computer vision, industrial automation, and UIs, which allowed me to better understand the similarities and the influence of humans and nature on technology. This is one of the subjects that inspires my work.
