Leanne Wijnsma – working under the studio name of yeast.computer – is based in Amsterdam. The studio builds experiences for the senses using smells, soil and microbes. yeast.computer also organizes workshops and gives lectures on instinctive interfaces and prototyping future senses.
One of the projects Wijnsma is currently working on is ‘A Wildlife’, for which she designed a hand lotion that acts as a carrier for invisible communication, investigating the consequences of a hyper-hygienic society. This project was commissioned by Het Nieuwe Instituut for the Dutch Pavilion at Milan Triennial 2019.
