Research Through Design

Projects

Sometimes, the best way to learn more about something is to do something with it.

In the Design Research Lab and at the University of Wuppertal, much of our work follows the approach of »Research Through Design«. A central role in this approach is played by the prototype. This section will give you a tour through the different projects we are working on.

Besides research, I also enjoy creating start-ups. While they are not my main commitment, I treat them like a little garden: Occasionally, I put some tweaks in the code, and see how it grows. They are listed below; give them a spin!

Hello, my name is Fabian Hemmert. I am a design researcher. My research is concerned with our body's role in our interactions with technology. I am a professor for interface and user experience design at the University of Wuppertal. Previously, I have been a postdoctoral researcher at the Design Research Lab at the Berlin University of the Arts, in collaboration with Telekom Innovation Labs. Before that, I worked for Nintendo and Marvel Comics. Currently, I investigate embodied interaction with the digital world.
