About

Jacqueline Hen is working at the intersection of Design, Art and Research. During her studies at University of the Arts Berlin and Art Center Collage of Design Pasadena, she specialized in Visual Communication, Spatial- and Experience design. Her work investigates possibilities of social transformation through communication and participation in the intersection of physical and virtual habitats.

Currently she is completing her “Meisterschüler-Studies” at University of the Arts Berlin and is teaching Design as an academic-artistic-assistant at the Academy of Media Arts Cologne (KHM). At KHM she is focousing on the development of a contemporary „Grundlehre der Gestaltung“ (Design Basics), which relates to all areas of analog, digital, 2d- and 3d Design techniques, addressing universal principles like symmetry, rhythm, interaction. It questions the responsibility, opportunities, and limitation of Design as a discipline and its transformation from a historical but also contemporary sight. (How design changes the present & the present forms the design).

From 2014 to 2017 she assisted Studio Tomas Saraceno on the research on spiderwebs and the exploration of new sustainable ways of inhabiting. She worked as a research assistant at Fraunhofer Center for Responsible Research and Innovation Berlin (2014-2016) concerned with Technology Transfer Research, Process Design, Transformative Methods and the development of interactive holographic interfaces.
