My name is Johannes and I create interactive spaces.
I used to draw comics and write a blog about the philosophy of aesthetics.
Now I program and make electronic music.
I started freelance work as a webdeveloper in 2017.
In 2018 2 friends and me founded the ABC*-Festival. It is a free festival for installed spaces. We had 3 installments in the Gängeviertel in 2019 and work together with Hallo e.V. for 2021 (the 2020 installment didn’t happen sadly).
I went to study Human Computer Interaction at the Universität Hamburg in 2018, but dropped out after the first semester. I then started working as a permanently employed software developer in 2019.
In 2018 I took actions to remove all traces of mine on the internet. I deleted all social medias, wrote e-mails to have most information deleted. I started using Linux, encryption, Tor and a password manager. I also dumped my smartphone for a Nokia 8110 4G (which is actually quite modern). It used to run on Kai OS, a bullshit closed source OS, probably collecting data for the big G. Because of that I flashed the phone, installed a custom ROM and started writing my own apps. Since then I have returned to using Instagram for networking purposes (it’s really good when making music). Everythin else remained.
Frappant is an art gallery and off-space of which I am part of since 2019.
In the same year I became a volunteer inspirer at Hacker Schools, an alternative education program.
During the pandemic of 2020 I started playing electric guitar. Which led to pedals. Which led to building pedals. Which led to synthesizers. Which led to building synthesizers. Since then I am playing live improvised techno sets as “Acid At The Mall” and do so on a modular system I partially build and develope the modules for. You can find more of this on my Instagram: /acidatm and also find my music on Soundcloud: /acidatm.
