Kim Albrecht visualizes cultural, technological, and scientific forms of knowledge. His diagrams unfold and question the structures of representation and explore the aesthetics of technology and society.

As a design researcher, Kim Albrecht explores the boundaries of visual knowledge in the post-digital age.
