Addie Wagenknecht

ffffat lab artist in residence

Addie Wagenknecht was born in an airport terminal somewhere in Oregon, or so it has been suggested. In her twenties, she fell into the gypsy life and solo hitchhiked around the world before landing in New York City after the pot of gold dried up from her VC-dot-com era coder monkey job circa 1999.

While in New York she completed a Masters at New York University as a Wasserman Scholar while spending her nights finding the best source of tacos at 4am. Since the end of her taco mission, she has held fellowships at Eyebeam Atelier, CultureLabUKHyperWerk Institute for Post-Industrial Design and most recently at the STUDIO for Creative Inquiry at Carnegie Mellon University.

Wagenknecht also the co-founded the New York City and Austrian based research and development lab NORTD in 2006 with Stefan Hechenberger. Currently NORTD is in the final phases of open sourcing the laser cutter, Lasersaur.

In her free time, Addie enjoys making middle aged rich men uncomfortable, dropping off steep ledges and eating cake. She splits her time between the US and Europe but really just lives on the internet.
