I do explore the topic of interaction in art and design.
All began with a virtual tug-of-war
with one side of the rope in Weimar and the other one in Los Angeles and a exhibition platform for interactive art
providing equal experiences for present and telepresent visitors. Together with six artists I explored the social behavior of six vacuum cleaner robots
. In an old bell tower Franz Höfner and me were bringing back the experience of pulling the bell rope
, creating a bell-rope-pulling gesture on a mobile phone.
In fact most of my time I do more "serious" work, looking for answers to the following questions: How can we help families
to facilitate every day organisation? How can a large amount of people participate in decisions? How can connected devices in a smart home
make our every day life a bit more pleasing? How to create a soft-phone
, accessible from every device? How can travelling
and shopping be easy and comfortable? How can we organize the processes around production more efficient but more flexible in an industrie 4.0
? How could we use block chain technology to create self-organized agencies, cities or networks of self-driving cars? How should heating
No matter if you call it interaction design, service design or experience design, it is always user-centerd and holistic.
My four day week leaves me enough space to teach
aside. I currently do so in Dessau and I did before at Weissensee, Weimar and UDK. And I am the co-author of the art cookbook
“12 Farben, 12 Menüs“ that shows 12 monochromatic menus. Together with artist Franz Höfner I won the 3rd price
of the competition “Motion Picture 2.0“ from ZKM.
I would love to do even more, so please contact
me whenever you see an opportunity for collaboration. I would love to organize workshops or to participate in exhibitions.
Have a great inspiring day, Tim.
And finally, I understand five languages but I speak them way to seldom. Any idea how to change that? More facts
