Mischa Kuball (b.1959 Germany, Düsselforf), conceptual artist, has been working in the public and institutional sphere since 1977. He uses light as a medium to explore architectural spaces as well as social and political discourses and reflects on a whole variety of aspects from sociocultural structures to architectural interventions as well as emphasizing or reinterpreting their monumental nature and context in architectural history. Public and private space merge into an indistinguishable whole in politically motivated participation projects, providing a platform for communication between the audience, the artist, the work itself and public space.

Since 2007 Mischa Kuball has been a Professor for public art at the Academy of Media Arts, Cologne, and associate professor for media art at Hochschule für Gestaltung/ZKM, Karlsruhe. Since 2015 he has been a member of the North Rhine-Westphalian Academy of Sciences, Humanities and the Arts, Duesseldorf. In 2016 he was honoured with the German Light Award.

Since 2006, Charles Michalsen has been Associate Professor at the Department of Design, Bergen Academy of Art and Design, teaching form and colour processes in the intersection between art and design. Michalsen studied ceramics in Norway (Academy of Arts, Trondheim; Faculty of Colour and Form, NTNU, 1977–1981) and Finland (Academy of Arts, Helsinki, 1979–1980), and sculpture at the Bergen School of Arts and Crafts, (1973–1975). He also has experience from several extended visits to China.

In his artistic research, Michalsen explores the subtext of culture and language:
‘What I say becomes accessible to others. I find it exciting to study the transition between sender and receiver. This does not necessarily involve the written word, but the sounds and body language used in interpersonal communication. My point of departure is the notion that a sign does not exist until the other part has responded to it.’

Michalsen explores how to design tools that enable us to reflect on personal interpretations and meanings, while simultaneously creating dialogue through a visual play with language.

Danielle Wilde is an Associate Professor of Embodied Design at the University of Southern Denmark, Kolding (SDU).

Her current research investigates:
• food as a starting point for thinking
• biology as a design material
• embodied, participatory approaches to enrich science society interfaces
• intertwining food, fibre and fabrics for future wearables
• design+diversity | ethics+aesthetics across materials, bodies, contexts, and perspectives.
To support this research, she leads the BodyBioSoft Lab, within the SDU Maker Lab at Pakhuset on the harbour in Kolding. The BodyBioSoft Lab affords practice-based research through garment engineering, wearable technologies, wearable biologies, "designerly" engagement with food and science.
