Benedikt Groß // Steiner Lecture in Creative Inquiry, 8/14/2019 from STUDIO for Creative Inquiry on Vimeo.

Benedikt Groß is an antidisciplinary designer. He works at the intersection of people, their data, technology and environments somewhere in the Bermuda triangle of data, speculative and computational design. He is also Professor of Interaction Design at HfG Schwäbisch Gmünd, and Director of Design at moovel Lab, an independent research venture between Daimler-Benz and BMW, whose mission is to explore the future of urban mobility. In fall 2019, Benedikt is Visiting Professor in the CMU School of Design, and Creator in Residence at the Frank-Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry as well as a Guest instructor in the CMU School of Design to teach information visualization.

Benedikt’s Steiner lecture presented design as a vehicle to explore new roles, contexts and approaches in relation to the social, cultural and ethical implications of emerging and future technologies. Benedikt will illustrate these thoughts with various projects. Groß’s work investigates how and why we build a relationship between the scale of the human body and the scale of public mobility technology, an empathetically driven immersive experience.
