Physical Computing and Hybrid Interfaces at Interface Cultures
As contributors to the Campus exhibitions staged in conjunction with the 2005 and 2006 Ars Electronica Festivals, candidates for masters and doctors degrees in the Interface Cultures program at the University of Art and Industrial Design Linz’s Department of Media had the opportunity to present some of their interactive course-work projects, for which they received enthusiastic reviews from audiences made up of experts from around the world over the past two years. The thematic emphasis of the projects selected for 2007’s Campus 2.0 is on physical computing and hybrid interfaces. For this exhibition, the interface concept developed in the Interface Cultures program has been expanded via linkup to other artistic and artisanal disciplines such as textile design, industrial design and interior design. These works embody original, innovative concepts for interaction involving intelligent furniture, clothing and environments, interactive toys, pervasive gaming, new analog and digital musical instruments as well as technical, artistic and applied interactive prototypes and hybrid systems.
