Hello 👋

I studied postindustrial design at Hyperwerk and now doing a master in design research at MAD until 2022. In my master thesis I'm focusing on our relationship with technology from an animistic point of view. I’m working as a scientific software programmer in a research project on participatory image archives at the University of Basel and until recently I enjoyed a position as junior researcher at the Institute of Experimental Design and Media Cultures in a project on electronic waste. I hold quite a few shorter and longer positions as webdeveloper over the last 15 years.

My calling is mainly coding and diy technologies as well as translating theory into other discourses. My subjects of interests cover non-western epistemologies, hacking as a general strategy, posthumanism and animism, poetic technologies, queer politics and archival practices. I’m active in these fields of inquiry through curatorial and artistic practices, design research as well as hosting events focusing on knowledge transfer and participation.
