I’m a researcher and artist with a background in media and computer science.
In my current work I explore the integration of technological development into the fields of art and craft, and vice versa, and cultural and aesthetic implications thereof. I previously worked with the Ars Electronica Futurelab designing and realizing interactive exhibits and exhibitions and as freelancer on design and technology research projects. I have been teaching at the University of Art and Industrial Design Linz and at the department for New Media – Technology – Culture at the University of Klagenfurt. In between 2012 and 2014 I carried out residencies at the V2_Institute for the Unstable Media Rotterdam (NL) and the Eyebeam Art&Technology Center New York (US) together with Ebru Kurbak. I currently work with her on the artistic research project ‘Stitching Worlds’ at the University of Applied Arts Vienna, Institute for Industrial Design II headed by Fiona Raby. I’m also a PhD student at the Institute for Design and Assessment of Technology headed by Geraldine Fitzpatrick, Vienna Technical University.
