Johannes Breuer works and researches in the field of interface design in medicine and health applications. He acts at the intersection between cultural and media studies as well as design research. He understands design as forming of the human environment in a body-friendly way, as an essential counter-instance to what spreads and asserts itself ’sans effort’ as if by itself.
