Experts examine interactivity and interface design for time-based media


January 15, 2010

Who
The ASU Herberger Institute School of Arts, Media and Engineering

What
As part of the Incubator series of workshops, initiated five years ago by the Center for Research in Computing and the Arts at UCSD, the ASU Herberger Institute School of Arts, Media and Engineering hosts the 2010 Incubator Workshop Feb. 19–21 on the ASU Tempe campus. The workshop's theme is: Beyond the instrument metaphor: new paradigms for interactive media.

The workshop brings together leading practitioners in music technology, human-computer interaction, multimedia arts, and cognitive science in order to investigate and prototype new directions related to interactivity and interface design for time-based media. Examples of these directions include distributed interaction, collective/social embodiment, rapid prototyping technologies, and form/aesthetics from an experience-centered perspective. Workshop goals include exploring these topics by actively collaborating, brainstorming, and even building new interface technologies, models and processes, as well as grow new collaborations and sustainable working relationships that can flourish over time.

The School of Arts, Media and Engineering (AME) is a collaborative initiative between the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts and the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering, focused on research and education in experiential (new) media and digital culture. AME incorporates the combined expertise of faculty members from across the university to offer undergraduate opportunities in Digital Culture, a PhD in Media Arts and Sciences, and concentrations in graduate degrees spanning the arts, sciences and engineering. AME faculty and students study, develop and apply new media systems that enhance education, health, culture and everyday living. For more information about AME, visit ame.asu.edu.
