Declarations

Declarations is an ongoing artistic research into the poetic materiality of the CSS web-standard. Declarations is a love letter to the crafts of designing with language.

bio

I'm Doriane. I grew up in Belgium, where i live, in Bruxelles.

me, doriane

I like to think about systems and automatised processes as sensible mediums. I have an infinite love for the idea of designing with words and language.

In 2021 I joined Open Source Publishing, where i make websites & conversations.

Since 2023, I coordinate an artistic research on CSS and the crafts of designing with language, called Declarations.

I deeply and sincerly love cooking, and walking (both alone or with other people).
