Cyanne van den Houten is an independent designer crushing immersive bytes into pieces since 2016. Very not afraid of clashing colourful imagery in combination with distinct wild typefaces, she helps communicating messages that need to be heard.
By creative coding, experimental usage of software her visual language investigates the present. With some sneaky winks filled with technostalgia, poetry, science fiction and noisy hyper pop-culture. 
Since 2016 she is active for various commissioners in the cultural field such as concert venues, museums, (educational) platforms and artists.

With a big nerdy tech-savvy passion Cyanne her heart is most on fire caring for our digital rights and uncovering mysteries around the digital.
This by visualizing (speculative) futures around digital extensions and intentions of humanity in tangible pieces of media. That’s why she founded open-media-lab Telemagic as she graduated from the Design Department at the Sandberg Instituut in 2017.
Art-meets-tech collective Telemagic creates manifestations, art interventions, and tools that focus on a closer human connection towards tech developments.
Like worlds first ever Paranormal Technology Fair, futuristic concerts led by the (by Telemagic developed) self-learning algorithm vNine ... and the 1 Euro Cinema - a cinematic oracle that zooms in on topics like surveillance capitalism, queerness and magic within tech by a diverse range of voices.

Collaboration and amplifying these (activist) voices is key to Cyanne her energetic practice, this in diverse formations. Sometimes she comes out of her neon low-tech atelier to trip over an old palmistry sensor, to talk about possible creativity of A.I., the simmilarities between technic and magic – or to just catch some daylight.


Currently living a dream with philosophizing about Telemagic’s upcoming A.I. label, producing the online experimental quarantaine island where you can watch 1 Euro Cinema films and designing on regular basis for Roodkapje.
But always available for freelance work, a chat, collaboration and nice music!
Thanks for reading.
