Dr Iris H. Casteren van Cattenburch, independent communications strategist in the field of water management, mobility and logistics, currently at Connekt, an international network for smart mobility in Delft (NL), and a research affiliate at Utrecht University. I am an enterprising scholar, mother, daughter, wife and lover, 21st century mythographer and allegorist. I am inspired by family, friends and colleagues, ancient and early modern writers, philosophers, historians and every other artist pursuing the quest of life. I am intrigued by the vast possibilities of technology and biology and concerned with the human dimension of changing space. I think, write and speak on the reciprocity between sustainability and the arts.
