Prof. Judith Glaser
Neoanalogue object design / Design in digital life and knowledge worlds
Judith Glaser is a trained goldsmith with professional experience in Germany and abroad. As part of an economic development program of the Gesellschaft für internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), she was involved in the training of Nepalese goldsmiths, among other things.
In 2011, she began studying product design at the Berlin Weißensee School of Art and Design as well as Lund University (Sweden). Judith Glaser completed her master’s degree with a focus on interaction design. After freelancing activities in research and industry, she been working for Studio NAND from 2018 to 2023. Studio NAND is a Berlin-based design studio specializing in data-driven user interfaces and interactive technologies. She has been involved in the conception, design and implementation of a wide range of projects in collaboration with start-ups, cultural institutions along with large corporations (including Deutsche Bahn, the British Museum or the Future Center Europe).
Her work as design professional as well as her years of teaching the interdisciplinary project format Coding IxD led to her research interest in skills and knowledge constellations at the intersection of design and computer science. This interest is also reflected in her design focus in the field of neo-analog, a synthesis of digital (code) and analog (material) interaction.
Since 2021, Judith Glaser has been an Associated Investigator in the research project Cutting at the Cluster of Excellence at Humboldt University Berlin (Matters of Activity). She taught as a visiting professor in the product design department at the Kunsthochschule Berlin Weißensee before being appointed to the Faculty of Design Würzburg in the summer semester of 2023.
