Paul Strohmeier

I am a nomadic scholar of life.

I have special interest in the meaning of the human body. It is the body which acts open the physical world, it is the body which the physical world acts upon. I believe that understanding the role our body plays in constructing both our image of the world around us as well as our image of our selves is a key to understanding phenomena such as intelligence or consciousness and is essential in developing technologies and practices which extend beyond the individual body.

I am an enthusiastic sceptic in regards to technology. The role of technology in our society is a strong interest of mine, however, rather than observing interactions with established technology I am interested in creating technological scenarios different from those we usually engage with. By doing so I hope to point out alternatives to current design practices. Especially considering the increasing ubiquity of digital technologies in our society, I believe it is important to take the time to reconsider what values we wish our technologies to embody.
