Karsten Schuhl works with sound, physical matter, vibrational principles, and sensor-actuator networks investigating the connective thread in the explorative processes of artistic and design-based research. Creating multi-sensory experiences to elicit moments of awe and situations of "!", he strongly emphasises physical artefacts as agents for interaction and sense-making.
His work aims to bend and decontextualise perspectives and shift perception to explore patterns, details and intricacies of the daily to reveal hidden values and instil a sense of wonder. He is currently a P.hD. candidate at Dessau Department of Design at the Anhalt University of Applied Sciences, investigating how to manage sonic-spatial perception based on material and kinetic principles actively. He also holds an M.A. in Product Design and an M.Sc. in Media Arts and Sciences from the MIT Media Lab.
