Prof. Dr. Pieter Jan Stallen
Social psychology, visual artist

For many years, and with great satisfaction, I worked in the field of applied science, always in the area between natural and social science. From the Atomic Energy Agency in Vienna (researching the risks of nuclear energy) to TNO, the Dutch Organisation for Applies Scientific Research, where I concentrated on industrial risks, and from independent environmental consultant to endowed Professor of Community Noise Annoyance at the University of Leiden. It was always science, argumentation – which is entirely different from creating something, although, as a visual artist, this is something I had already been concerned with for some time (www.stallen-lamp-art.nl). But in PublicPasses it is pivotal: in developing new methodologies as well as technically realizing them. Innovation as well as coming to practical agreement with clients.
