Hi, I am Farina,

designer of immersive interactions.

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.

You can find all the things I do on this website in my port­fo­lio and on the page activi­ties and up to date on my Twit­ter account.
