16.05.2011, 16:00, Uwe R. Br眉ckner @ HIT E 51 www.atelier-brueckner.de Scenography or the Art of Choreographed Spaces. The most important aspect of scenographical design lies in the translation of content into spatial images that can be walked through, and more generally even, in the generation of staged spaces with narrative qualities. In the best of all possible cases, the space... Read More

20.04.2011, 13:00, Stephen Gage @ HIT E 51 Bartlett UCL, London A-Functional Architecture. I argue that the experience of architecture, the delight and wonder of finding oneself in beautiful places and spaces resides both in highly designed interactive spaces and events and in spaces from which close functionality has departed or in which close functionality was always transient.... Read More

30.03.2011 / DANIEL BISIG

30.03.2011, 14:00, Daniel Bisig @ CAAD, HPZ F Institute for Computer Music and Sound Technology, ZHDK. Swarm Simulation in Interactive Art Swarm simulations model the coherent movement of a large groups of animals. They represent a classical category of multi-agent systems that rely on principles of self-organization to give raise to a variety of emergent phenomena. Accordingly,... Read More
