Welcome to the blog of the dhfm artistic research group. We are embedded in Intermedia (LUCA School of Arts, Brussels), the Lieven Gevaert Research Centre (Faculty of Arts, University of Leuven), and the art institute Netwerk Aalst.

Dhfm encircles four research fields: The Forest of Things, Anecdotal Evidence, Glitches & Gibberish, and Omissions & Additions.

The Forest of Things

is concerned with lost herbals, matriarchal trees, digital landscapes and ecological imagination.

Anecdotal Evidence

explores writing and expanded language based practices.

Glitches & Gibberish

encompasses investigations into loss of language and the mechanical mistake.

Omissions & Additions

includes those projects that refuse categorization.
