Lecture: Wed 18 November / 7 pm
Dr. Stefan Agamanolis
Chief Executive / Research Director, Distance Lab
Slow Communication Stefan will explore how the same design thinking that led to fast food has led to the modern mobile phone. Based on his work at MIT and Distance Lab, he reports on some trends in communication design that lead in a different direction. Examples will include sports games you play over a distance, telephones crossed with flotation tanks, and
communication systems designed for a bedroom environment. He will introduce the notion of “slow communication”, an extension of ideas from the Slow Food movement into the design of communication technologies. He suggests that the broad palette of technologies at our disposal have not begun to be exploited to provide us with communication experiences that are higher in quality and enable a greater sense of intimacy and immersion.
Gallery Event: Sat 21 November / 12- 4 pm
An interactive installation related to The Static Organ that explores the notion of data visualisation through the tangible representation of the activity of the brain. By connecting themselves to the installation, users can observe the activity of their brain by controlling the audio and kinetic sculpture. Equally, by focusing on the visual and aural experience, the Mind Pool can act as a meditative aid.
