I am a trained philosopher with expertise in phenomenology, continental philosophy, theories of embodiment and aesthetics. I am passionate about contemporary advances in technology and their impact on human self-understanding, art and culture. Being convinced that philosophical knowledge matters not only within academia, but also to a wider public I also engage in co-operations with tech firms and public presentations. Given the accelerated speed of technological invention that is changing our bodies, minds and life-worlds I propose the necessity of a public and interdisciplinary discourse.
In that regard, I take a stance for a phenomenological perspective that does not lose sight of the experiential and ethical aspects of new technologies. This is the reason why I take fashion, cinema and art to be important topics within the larger scope of philosophy of technology. I discuss these cultural practices against the backdrop of theories of embodiment in order to understand how perception and movement are engineered through technology and how artistic practices can shed light on this process.
