Dominik Gumpenberger completed his teaching degree in technical handicrafts at the Mozarteum University Salzburg in 2008 and also graduated in geography and economics at the University of Natural Sciences in Salzburg. As a passionate tinkerer, he developed and manufactured innovative products early on, especially in the kite, surfing and outdoor sectors. As part of his student training and beyond, he conducted intensive research in product development in the field of fiber composite technology, especially in the construction of lightweight components. The urge and desire to work experimentally and across disciplines in terms of materials is evident in his works. Craftsmanship and technical perfection, paired with courage, innovation and perseverance, is an elementary prerequisite for him to successfully materialize ideas. After teaching experience at various schools in the federal state of Salzburg, he has been teaching works and DAT (design, architecture, technology) at the WRG Salzburg since 2012. In autumn 2015 he returned to the Mozarteum University as a lecturer. There he teaches the subjects of technical processes and scientific fundamentals, materials laboratory, plastics and also works as a functional assistant in the GTT course (Department of Fine Arts and Design).
