Stephanie Marie Cedeño is a visual & interaction designer, writer, and researcher oscillating between applied and experimental contexts. She uses design as a mode of inquiry to explore emerging technology for their material, cultural, and spatial implications. Her recent research focuses on ideas regarding maintenance work as well as our perceptions on the informal labor sector; she has the hope this research can be a foundation for how designers work through both of these concepts for the design of our future cities and homes.
Currently, she is an Interaction Designer at Bosch.IO in Berlin, Germany, where she investigates and builds the user experience for Internet of Things products, systems, and services.
Before moving to Europe, she received her MFA from ArtCenter College of Design’s Media Design Practices program and BA from Boston University; was a featured artist at Ars Electronica; worked as an Interaction Designer & Strategist at AT&T’s Experience Design Studio in LA; & presented her design work at the MAAT’s Post-Internet Cities Conference in Lisbon.
