aesthetic research

Kim Albrecht visualizes cultural, technological, and scientific forms of knowledge. His diagrams are meant to unfold and question the structures of representation and explore the aesthetic of the intermingling of technology and society through the sensual knowledge of tracing information.

The diagram above is a meta-visualization of selected projects, affiliations, exhibitions, writings, media appearances, and others. Explorable as a list and as a timeline, it offers a self-referential map into connections Kim has made, which guide and influence his current makings.

Kim was born in the northernmost point in Germany, an island in the North Sea. He holds a BA in graphic design and an MA in interface design. Kim worked as a researcher at the Center for Complex Network Research with Prof. Laszlo Barabasi and recently joined the metaLAB (at) Harvard. In 2016 Kim started his Ph.D. at the University of Potsdam in the field of media theory. As knowledge designer and aesthetic researcher, Kim Albrecht explores the boundaries of visual knowledge in the post-digital age.
