Marc was a visiting Researcher at MIT Media Lab (Boston, US), Bristol University, (Bristol, UK) and Saarland University (Saarland, UK), where he pursued international collaboration while
teaching theory and practice in Design, Research and Digital Fabrication. His research is focused on Critical Design, and how technology impacts human interactions. Marc is now Principal Investigator of the “Resilient Futures” group at the DeVinci Innovation Center, where his works
propose an alternative to technology by exploring sustainable innovations, from low-Tech devices to bio-fabrication This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
