Hello! I am an author, editor and concept developer with a focus on visual culture and technology, based in Berlin. I find it thrilling to watch how digital culture is changing our vision of the world. Data visualisation, interactive media and computational design are one focus of my work, but I also do research in the history of maps and diagrams.

A few years ago, I have published two books with art and design publisher TASCHEN which tackle the current burst in the field of information graphics and data visualisation. In cooperation with Princeton Architectural Press, I recently released a book about the work of Charles-Joseph Minard, one of the most important forefathers of modern information visualization. Furthermore, I am currently preparing a massive overview of “The History of Information Graphics”, to be out from Taschen in late 2019. Occasionally I contribute to Süddeutsche Zeitung. For several years now I have worked in various teams for developing interactive and computational installations for exhibitions, mostly with TRIAD Berlin and ART+COM Studios.

My academic background is in art history and cultural theory. I regularly cooperate with the interface design programme at University of Applied Sciences in Potsdam, for instance by teaching a class on the history and theory of information visualisation. Apart from that, I regularly share my knowledge about data visualisation and interactive media as a consultant and trainer.

I support the work of Amnesty International. For some random meddling follow me on Twitter. If you want to get in touch, please drop me a line using this form below.
