Jessica Broscheit is an artist and researcher based in Hamburg, Germany.
Driven by a passion for interdisciplinary thinking, Jessica began her career as a communications designer, where she cultivated her astute sense for conceptual and visual presentation. This was also visible in her own stage productions and scenographies, where she developed a feeling for interaction in terms of performativity, acoustics, and visualisation. Her clear sense for artistic as well as functional design makes for a visual rhetoric that fabricates artifacts linking the material and the cognitive dimensions. Combining this with her endeavour to filter the essence, reduce complexity, and align contemporary with tradition, Jessica Broscheit conceives of and creates visual, dynamic, and haptic representations. Since her scholarship in China, she has been focusing on making the invisible visible by using data as ‘clay’ and interpret the information into something physical. Due to she creates sensory experiences with computer artifacts and explores both the aesthetics of technology and the perception of environmental data. Her research interests include ubiquitous computing, human-computer interaction, tangible interfaces, and data interpretation. In addition, Jessica Broscheit also runs workshops which utilise tangible interfaces and fiction-driven approaches. Currently, she is working as a Research Assistant for the FTZ SMSY at the Faculty of Engineering and Computer Science of the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences.
