Nina van Tuikwerd has a playful approach to design to show visual research and engagement to speculative thinking. Extrapolating on possible future scenarios of our planet she raises awareness on our environmental issues by pulling us in a magical world, where nature will always survive, with or without humans. Nina graduated with distinction from the Royal Academy of Art (KABK), The Hague in 2019, and is currently getting an MA at Sandberg Instituut, Amsterdam (F for Fact)
