Chris Woebken (MA Interaction Design, RCA, London / Eyebeam Resident / Ted Fellow): Chris Woebken uses futurization practices to create props, narratives and visualizations investigating the impacts as well as the aesthetic and social potentials of technologies. He runs workshops and often collaborates with scientists, organizations, artists and engineers to invent and build prototypes of future services and products.
He has worked with Natalie Jeremijenko, exhibited at New York City’s Museum of Modern Art and has been a frequent guest critic and lecturer at Columbia University, the Rhode Island School of Design and New York City’s School of Visual Arts.
Daniel Goddemeyer (MA Interaction Design, RCA, London): Daniel Goddemeyer is a researcher and strategic interaction designer who works at the intersection of people, technology, design and urban space and focuses in his work on exploring their future connections, interdependencies and interactions with each other.
He is specifically interested in how ubiquitous technology, connectivity and data will affect, impact and shape our behaviors and culture in urban space in the coming years and, most of all, what new future opportunities this may hold.
During his past career he has been working at Antenna Design, IDEO, Future Farmers and Artefact among others.
He is currently teaching the class ‘Urban Fictions’ at New York City’s School of Visual Arts that explores and speculates about the impacts of ubiquitous technology and data on our interactions with one another and cities and has been a frequent speaker at conferences such as Epic and IDSA.
