An American artist based in Austria, Addie Wagenknecht builds installations, interventions, paintings and sculpture that investigate the cultural connection between technology and social interaction. In her work, a critical space between lived experience and sculpture emerges, as she plays with the contemporary anxieties of post-Snowden information culture.

Formally trained in computer science, Wagenknecht is a member of the New York-based arts and activist group Free Art and Technology Lab (also known as “F.A.T. Lab”). A leader of the open source hardware movement, she co-founded NORTD Labs with Stefan Hechenberger in 2007, creating projects that have been used and built by millions worldwide.
