An artistic approach to the IoT
One-day intensive workshop on 20 November 2014 in Lisbon.
About the workshop
This workshop explores a world where human and nonhuman entities have an equal claim to existence. It will introduce and actively examine the class of technologies described as the Internet of Things (IoT) and explore its problematic implications for the notions of human agency and social identity.
Equally seeing it as an opportunity to provoke new ideas and ludic experimentation, CADA will ask participants to imagine a world seen from an object’s perspective. Using a set of exploratory questions and practical exercises, people will enter the logic of such a projection from the inside out.
About INTER-FACE 2014
INTER-FACE 2014 is the second International Conference on Live Interfaces. It gathers paper presentations, performances, interactive installations, poster demonstrations and workshops.
INTER-FACE is dedicated to problematising convergences and divergences between different understandings of performance technology. It seeks to expose a variety of motivations and approaches, and discuss how specific understandings of ‘liveness’, ‘immediacy’, ‘timing’ or ‘flow’ manifest in performance with digital media.
Conference programme here.
