After one year of writing, translation, editing and great layout the collaborative book was published by PARK BOOKS. I am very grateful to having been asked to contribute. My essay “digital culture: from open design to creating your own future” is one of 47 texts by contemporary artists and designers active in the digital world.
with Cookies’n’Code we organise the upcoming event CYOfuture
which will take place in fall 2012 in Berlin.
The project is presented as part of the exhibiton -> DIY – Die Mitmachrevolution for the next 6 months in Frankfurt, then moving for another 1/2 year to Berlins museum of Communication. Here are some impressions of the opening:
Supported by the European Commission, ->Cookies’n’Code is hosting the first “Create Your Own 2011” event in Berlin — a business symposium and demo exhibition that brings together some of the foremost European thinkers and doers in mass customization, personalization and customer co-design.
This networking event shall provide a hub for discussion, showcase experience and offer participants to expand their network with a focus on start-ups and open-minded entrepreneurs in business-to-consumers (BTC) markets.
Check it out -> cyo2011

Cookies and Code is a multi-disciplinary collective of people exploring collaborative design and co-creation processes.
We are interested in extending Mass Customisation, personalisation and co-creation beyond giving people a choice between pre-designed shapes and their combinations.
This often involves exploring how to use digital technologies (CNC-milling, rapid manufacturing, 3-d scanning, laser cutting etc.) in integrating the prosumer into the process.
Cookies and Code are: Nadia EL-Imam and Susanne Stauch.
We finally made it to edit our texts and get the book finished which then got published by Form+Zweck.
You can purchase it directly from Amazon. Click the pic and read what we think about Professionals and Amateurs in Design.
Texts by Florian A. Schmidt, Peter Lasch, Susanne Stauch, Friedrich Kautz, Fritz Gobbesso
