Since 1992 she has been artistic director of the Institute for Media Communication; since 1997 she has been head of the MARS exploratory media lab at the Fraunhofer Institute for Media Communication in Sankt Augustin. In 1988 she was co-founder of Art + Com, Berlin, a research institute for computer-assisted media art, architecture, design. Her research projects are based on interface design and new forms of communication. The design of interfaces as a toy, a tool, a space, and a situation is the basis of communicative action and is the motivation for her exploration of mixed realities - the linking of physical and virtual space. Her main research topic is to extend the idea of interaction and communication by interfaces combined with interactive virtual environments on the base of perceptive processes.
