After graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Multimedia and Computer Science from University of Oregon in 2002 where she studied under Craig Hickman and Mary Flanagan, Wagenknecht started work as a network administrator and freelance designer. She worked on projects for Apple Inc., the National Science Foundation and University of Oregon.

In 2005, she moved to New York City where she completed her Master's degree in 2007 from New York University's Interactive Telecommunications Program under Red Burns and Tom Igoe. Wagenknecht co-created BikeJus, a bike which generates power with the goal of allowing the user to live 'off the grid'.[2]

She currently is a full time artist and fellow at Eyebeam Atelier[3]. Wagenknecht founded with her partner Stefan Hechenberger, the New York City and Vienna based research and development lab, NOR_/D, which developed the open source system called CUBIT (multi-touch) [4] and the more recent iteration TouchKit. .
