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, the department for New Media – Technology – Culture at the University of Klagenfurt and the New Design University in St. Pölten. I carried out residencies at the V2_Institute for the Unstable Media Rotterdam (NL) and the Eyebeam Art&Technology Center New York (US), the Tactile and Tactial Design Lab, University of Washington (US) and the Teachers College at Columbia University (US). I co-initated and worked as the key researcher of the artistic research project ‘Stitching Worlds’ at the University of Applied Arts Vienna, Institute for Industrial Design II headed by Fiona Raby. I pursue my PhD work at the Institute for Design and Assessment of Technology headed by Geraldine Fitzpatrick, Vienna Technical University.
