Personal profile


Markus Wernli’s practice, research, and teaching focus on human-nature relatedness by exploring the development of more regenerative, ecologically entangled ways of living and designing. His ongoing research draws connections between our food systems and practices, and social, cultural and local ecosystems; and considers how to forge better connections between what we breathe, eat, expel, wear, and, grow. Much of Markus’ research might be considered participatory citizen science, or social citizen-design experiments that can be gathered under the umbrella of Participatory Research through Design. He specializes in contextually applied and critical research-through-design, bringing focus to the social and ecological impact of body-technology pairings and human-biosphere interactions. Markus currently works as Research Assistant Professor with School of Design at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. Prior to that he held appointments at College of Asia and the Pacific at Australian National University in Canberra, and Zokei University of Art and Design in Kyoto and the Multimedia Studies Program at San Francisco State University.
