Iohanna Nicenboim 

Iohanna Nicenboim (MA – UDK Berlin) is a designer and researcher, focussed on developing qualitative interactions with new technologies. Her practice has developed in different scales and formats – including food, curation and speculative design. Currently she works as a researcher at the Rethinking Prototyping project, as well as a teacher at Node Center for Curatorial Studies.


During her residency at HIAP, Nicenboim will focus on developing tools for addressing the Internet of Things (IoT) in a critical way. Based on her MA project ‘Objects of Research’, she will create new work around the question: Who is the object in the Internet of Things?, speculating (and prototyping) on new relationships between humans and everyday objects in private and public spaces.
