about dario
Dario Loerke – Educated in Philosophy, Social Science, and Interaction Design at leading European universities — I consider myself a person strongly fascinated by cultural interventions.

Particularly interested in Strategic Design and its implications for the greater complexities of our times, I am curious about ways how humans relate to technology and how technologies affect our lives. At an early age, I stopped accepting my prevalent surroundings – starting to question existing socio-cultural phenomena. Speculating about alternative realities, I try to position myself between research and cross-disciplinary making towards more preferred futures. Inter-human interactions remain core.
