After my bachelor’s degree in communication design with focus on interaction design (UI + UX) at the Braunschweig University of Art, I am currently studying Digital Media (MA) at the University of the Arts in Bremen. I’m really enthusiastic about immersive media like virtual and augmented reality (and 360° videos). I started with hackathons, VR workshops and my first VR project Ana Kalypto which I realized with a classmate. Since then I’m fascinated by the incredible possibilities but also the responsibilities of a complete new medium.
I love realizing projects in a short time, that’s why you can find me at events such as workshops, hackathons, game jams and residencies regularly. Additionally, I enjoy to get people excited about immersive media and am therefore active as speaker, mentor and tutor. Furthermore, I administrate the website meetXR.de, a calender with XR events in Germany, and founded the XR meetup BREMERSIV.
Addionally, I’m very interested in speculative and critical design. We live in a time of constant changes and developments with far-reaching consequences. I believe that art and design are able to call attention on those changes and developments, can be thought-provoking, and motivate to participation. Therefore I developed a fictional service as my bachelor project which seemingly imitates the user and takes over their activities on social networks with the help of artificial intelligence.
