Lectures and seminars at Köln International School of Design (KISD, as professor since 2018), San Francisco Art Institute (assistant professor 2015-2018), Bauhaus University Weimar (visiting professor in 2013), at the Department of Design of Dortmund University of Applied Sciences and Arts (2013-2014), and at the Academy of Media Arts (KHM) Cologne (2006-2012). Courses vary from introductory to graduate level and comprise foundations of programming and physical computing for the arts, generative design and interaction design, as well as media art and design projects.

“Projektmodul” at Bauhaus-University Weimar (Media Environments)
The project examines “cyber” and “space” as technological and scientific fields and subjects of artistic practice: Cybernetics, computer art, interaction, networks and space are put into relation to each other in order to develop contemporary positions in art and design – projects dealing with real and mediated space and the interconnections between both.

Architectures for humans, animals and machines
The seminar examines spaces as spaces for action, that are created by the interconnection of external architecture, physiological or technological perceptive systems and individual action patterns. Part of the seminar consists in a workshop at Palazzo Ricci in Montepulciano, Italy in summer 2012.
International summer school
KHM, Academy of Media Arts Cologne in cooperation with Free University Berlin.
July 18th-23rd, 2010
The summer school brings together artists and researchers who work in the context of biological laboratories. Besides methodological and theoretical discussions we want to stimulate the exchange between research in arts and humanities. We would also like to mediate experience of laboratory work by practical exercises, e.g. in Lab3, Laboratory for Experimental Computer Science. Therefore, the program includes project presentations by the participants, BioArt and laboratory workshops in addition to plenary and public lectures.
