We work with refugees, young and elderly people every ages in an inclusive way, bringing people together for a creative research to solve complex problems with simple social or technique hacks.

Inspired by media arts and hackerculture, we combine freedom of information, analog and digital technology, and art.

We open technological devices and social structures and have a look at what's inside them, find out how they work, and encourage interested people of all ages to realise their ideas with technological and artistical means.




Start Citizen Science Project

We explore with Fraunhofer IDMT concepts and design approaches for adaptive "Hearables" using Citizen Sciences methods, Co-design, hackathons, individual field studies to reach a broad public with PR, demos and (art) exhibitions.

Sponsored by BMBF

We concepted, raised funds and managed the project of "Co-Designing a digital service for refugees and supporters".

We catogrized a stakeholdermap about 50 private and public stakeholders in the  field or refugee help: Consulting, politics, administration, grassroot initiatives, work inclusion, art projects, social support, internet access.

We organized the MeetUps "Perspektiven wechseln Weissensee" in Berlin Weissensee and interviewed half-standardized about 30 refugees from Syria, Afghanistan and Somalia about their basic needs and their use of devices and apps.

Based on our knowledge about the basic needs of refugees and supporters we tested 50 apps for refugees and analyzed critically their range.

In two Co-Design Workshops together with refugees and and stakeholders supporting them topics and the results were presented and discussed.

Finally we gave report and recommendations for the implementation of refugee apps and access to internet.

I planned 2016 the projects "Made for my wheelchair" with lead users Raul Krauthausen (founder of SOZIALHELDEN) and "Costum DIY Limbs" with Anemarie Hackel. Both are citizen science projects for assistive technologies based on DIY maker technologies.

The projects are now running at Fab Lab Berlin in cooperation with ottobock, the lead users are involved als active parts of the development of the products. The application of maker technologies aims on democratization of technologies and the empowerment of the user to potentially design and produce their own products.

The projects got prized by the Photonic Call "Light Cares" of BMBF on behalf of Fab Lab Berlin.

See here a prototype of Annemarie Hackels forearm prosthesis. The existing hand is scanned and functions as pattern for the 3d print of the costum-designed 3d printed prosthesis.
