Jørn is an interaction designer and associate professor. His PhD-project was called Products of the Networked City and investigated through design how the vast deployment of network and computational technologies into our spatial environments is prompting us to reconsider what “products” are, what they are made of and how they are designed.
Jørn’s design and research work is centred around understanding emerging technologies through active engagement and making things such as visualisations of technology, interactive products and exhibitions. His work as been exhibited widely, including ‘Immaterials‘ at Lighthouse, ‘Invisible Fields’ at Laboral in Spain and ‘DREAD’ at De Hallen Haarlem in Amsterdam. Additionally, Jørn holds lectures nationally and abroad about design related to technology, materiality and practice.
Alongside the research at AHO he is part of the design studio Voy in Oslo doing design consultancy and developing interesting products of their own.
