Addie Wagenknecht

Open Source Hardware Association/MIT and NORTD labs
The Internet
Addie Wagenknecht is currently the chair of the Open Hardware Summit, an artist at Free Art and Technology Lab a.k.a. F.A.T. Lab and is represented by bitforms gallery, NYC. Wagenknecht is also a co-founder of NORTD labs who created the open source laser cutter Lasersaur. The Lasersaur Project is estimated to have around 1,000 active developers including New York University, Stanford University and Carnegie Mellon University among others. Addie is a professor in robotics and open source computation at the institut für experimentelle architektur hochbau at the University of Innsbruck, Austria. Wagenknecht’s research, collaborations and projects are documented in a number of academic papers, books and magazines such as the Economist, Forbes, Popular Mechanics, MIT Technology Review, Gizmodo, Slashdot, Engadget, Heise, ARTnews and Der Standard. She currently splits her time between New York City and Austria (but really just lives on the internet). Through her artistic and scientific practices she hopes to challenge the status quo and create a sense of bittersweet irony (preferably both at once).
