Christopher Koelsch

Christopher Koelsch is designer of interactivity with an emphasis on exhibition and set design using the human body as a tool to make environments react, change and fluctuate. Through motion, light, and audio sensing with physical computing & circuitry, he works in theatre, installation, public and corporate exhibitions.

Interested in changing our perception of the museum experience, commercial spaces, and corporate and art exhibitions, he seeks to bring the human further with his or her reaction to interfaces.  Making our senses a key factor in interaction with our world, he aims his sights at further movement away from the keyboard - or any simple switch - to a completely experiential interface.

Christopher has a B.A. in English Literature from the University of Pennsylvania and a Master of Fine Arts in Design and Technology from Parsons The New School for Design in New York City.

He previously was a costume designer for theatre, television, and film in Los Angeles. He has lectured and worked internationally in France, Poland, Italy and Russia, and currently resides in New York City.
