Presentation on Interactive Audiovisual Projects, Culture Lab, Newcastle University

Today (16/5/2011) I will make a “lunch talk” presentation at Culture Lab, Newcastle University, on the following topic:
“Interactive Audiovisual Projects: Toys, Art Works or Tools?” Link to related project:


Thank you to Andrzej + Ewelina and Atau Tanaka @ Culture Lab for the invitation.

Culture Lab has excellent facilities: a renovated historical building (listed building erected in 1889; award-winning renovation) in the center of town. It is also very well equipped. Despite its relative youth (it was founded in 2006), the research conducted there seems quite mature (in areas such as gestural/touchscreen interaction design and social inclusion).

My presentation centered around the development of my latest project, AV Clash, as an example of an art work on the threshold of becoming a tool. I also mentioned Reactable and Tenori-on as projects in the frontier between art work and tool.

Presentation at e-Vent, Tallinn University 05/2010

On May 18 2010, I presented my project AV Clash at e-Vent, a “demo day” type of event at Tallinn University (Estonia), organized by its Institute of Informatics. I was a guest researcher at the Institute of Informatics between 2009 and 2010.

AV Clash was under development at the time. The prototype shown at e-Vent lacked any animation material, and the graphical user interface was incomplete. Still, it was interesting to present a prototype of AV Clash for the first time, before showing a beta version at SMC Barcelona a couple of months later.
