Arne Berger

Arne Berger was born in the 70ies in the Eastern Bloc. He is an interaction design researcher and left handed. His background is in media arts and design, with an interdisciplinary master from Bauhaus-Universität Weimar. Officially a computer scientist with a doctorate in engineering from a technical university, his research takes an inter- and transdisciplinary research through design approach at the intersection of co-design and interaction design. He explores novel modes of co-creation together with people in the context of their homes and neighborhoods. By designing interactive co-design tools, methods, and labs he contributes novel ways to explore, appropriate, understand, and critically reflect design spaces within the smart home and the Internet of Things (IoT). Arne is a professor for Human-Computer-Interaction at Anhalt University of Applied Sciences. He is somewhat well travelled and takes local food a bit too serious.
