My name is Koji Wakayama. I'm an Experience Designer currently based in Stockholm, Sweden. I uncomplicate
man machine interactions while incorporating computation, digital fabrication, robotics and play into everyday life and work.
I studied Graphic Design, Communication Design and Media Arts at the University of Arts and Design in Karlsruhe, Germany and hold a Master of Fine Arts degree in Experience Design from the Department of Interdisciplinary Studies at Konstfack, University College of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm, Sweden. I gained working experiences during my internships at Hakuhodo Inc. in Tokyo, Japan and Aedas Architects Ltd UK in London and Stockholm. I was working as an Interaction Designer for the international architecture and design collaborative Servo and participated in the entrepreneurial interdisciplinary Think Tank on forecasting trends in education: “Local Becomes Global”, hosted by the Stockholm School of Entrepreneurship in Ahmedabad in India in 2008. From 2007 to 2008 I was working as campus liaison at the Stockholm School of Entrepreneurship where I extended my design background with entrepreneurial knowledge. In August 2008 I was teaching "Robotics for Kids", a summer course for children, which was a part of the research for my master thesis in Experience Design where I investigated the question "can machines have experiences?". In summer 2009 I joined the Experience Design faculty at the Department of Interdisciplinary Studies at Konstfack where I was teaching at the Master's program and was appointed course leader for the first year Experience Design Master course at Konstfack until winter 2010. Since June 2011 I'm an Interactive Developer at Society 46 .
