: Co-Founder / Creative Director
has a degree in Art and Technology from Universitat der Kunste Berlin, André began developing numerous projects around the globe related to sound forensics, electromagnetic fields and cellphones. Ten years ago, his first endeavors in Germany began at T-Labs (the creative department of T-Mobile). At the same time his artwork, under the pseudonym Andre Wakko
, emerged in festivals, workshops and symposiums such as TunedCity, Transmediale, CTM and several others. After his essay about ancient technology and awareness (based on a field research in Brazil, Indonesia and India), the ultimate idea for TOCA was born. It lives on as an artistic redemption to the practical world, materializing solutions towards a healthier use of technology.
At TOCA Andre takes care of the creative strategies, design and media from conception to completion. Identifies and resolves production problems; and directs the product development sector.
