Daniel Wessolek is interested in working with people to improve our daily lives with maker technologies, and is particularly fascinated by sensory human augmentation. Currently he is based in Berlin and is facilitating co-design processes to peer-invent assistive technologies with the help of personal fabrication tools and methods. Previously Daniel was a postdoctoral research fellow at Singapore University for Technology and Design (SUTD) in Singapore. In 2016 he defended his PhD in Art and Design on Simple Displays at Bauhaus University Weimar, where he also worked as a research associate in Interaction Design. He also holds an MFA in Media Art & Design from Bauhaus University Weimar, an MA in Art Theory from Tongji University Shanghai and a BA in Digital Media from University of the Arts Bremen.


Magnificent Mobile Makerspaces

Daniel Wessolek, Victoria Wenzelmann, Jaiksana Soro, Iryna Kolotylo

When the people can not come to the Makerspaces, the Makerspaces come to the people. Makers from Ukraine, Uganda, and the Lausitz region in Germany come together to share experiences and exchange with you on the spot. What do these mobile spaces have in common, how do they differ, and how can they unite and build a network to support the locals?

Open Hardware Gallery: Unboxing Black Boxes

Bonny Brandenburger, Maximilian Voigt, Thorhauer Frank, Daniel Wessolek

Location: Makerspace

Over the years, our everyday technology has increasingly become a black box. For a world in which repair is normal, technology must be reinvented. We show examples of how this can be done. We highlight open hardware projects which solve societal problems and can be replicated due to their open documentation.

Lukas F. Hartmann, Tom Hansing

Endlich zeigt die gesellschaftliche Forderung auf ein Nutzer:innenrecht auf Reparatur Wirkung und findet sich beispielsweise im Koalitionsvertrag. Während die aktuelle Regierung noch auf Vorschläge aus Brüssel wartet*, denken wir schon weiter und diskutieren wie offene Hardware zur Ressourcensparsamkeit beitragen kann.
