My name is Stella Friedenberger. I am a Communication Designer exploring the possibilities of interactive semi-virtual environments. I am working on cross-media projects in the fields of Print, Extended Reality and Web.
Together with Benedikt Rottstegge I founded MENSCHMASCHINE Studio to collectively collaborate with fellows and clients from all kinds of different scientific, social, artistic and cultural fields. Within our artistic design practice we always speculate about the shifting importance of interfaces between things and things themselves.
