    United in Interaction

    UX is bigger than you might think! When we look past apps and websites, we find the wonderful land of interactive art. Generative graphics, experimental interfaces and sensory controllers are just some of the miracles waiting to enrich your toolbox. This talk will show how an exchange between our fields is a good thing for everyone, and why we shouldn't be afraid to learn different approaches to the same problem.

    Bad Vibrations: Haptics of the Digital

    Today, when we get in »touch« with the digital world, we often do not feel more than cold glass - and an occasional vibration. While audio and video are going HD, and 3D, haptics are often neglected. In his talk, Fabian Hemmert will explore possible future visions of feeling digital contents, and discuss their potential impact on the human condition in an age of information abundance.

    BMW Connected - Extending the App Experience to the Car

    Smartphone Users carry around dozens of different apps in their pocket. From the users perspective the question is pretty simple – How can I use my favourite music App in my car?

    This talk will show the development process and highlight the special requirements in the automotive UX context.

    UX, Co-creation and the Next Wave of Prototyping for Touch Devices

    No matter where you are with your user experience practice or how you begin a project, touch devices of all shapes and sizes have slowly altered what we design. In turn HOW we craft experiences and work together should reflect this evolution. The shift from web conventions like buttons and dropdowns to touch and content forward solutions takes teamwork, testing and insights from our users. UX methods like wireframing, paper prototyping and whiteboarding are proven ways to iterate and reveal innovative new ideas. Together we'll unpack and air out our skills and tailor them for touch interfaces. And we'll discover clever ways to co-create fresh concepts that you can take back and share with your whole team.

    Algorithms - Our Beautiful (But Problematic) Friends

    No longer the exclusive domain of theoretical computer scientists, algorithms are increasingly invading our public consciousness. Just as software - disguised as »apps« - has become a part of pop culture, computational logic is increasingly a matter of public interest and even concern. But whether seemingly benign (Google's PageRank) or outright sinister (high-frequency trading), algorithms are often poorly understood. What are the implications of using code as a material for creative expression?

    How to give Everything Away

    This is a discussion about sharing. Sharing code and ideas, and collaborating on tools and artwork. Sharing personal information, and learning about the difference between what's public and private. It's about what you do when your girlfriend asks you to stop posting everything you type directly to Twitter. It's about what you do when the United States Secret Service confiscates your laptop as you're trying to learn about human computer interaction. It's about responding to thousands of emails from people you've never met, who have questions you could never imagine. This is my coming-of-age story on the internet, a story about the future of collaboration and creativity.

    Jail-breaks: Engineering as Creative and Critical Practice

    Art has long been cherished as a vital frame for unrestrained reflection upon contemporary life. In the post-industrial era however, complex tools, formal languages and hidden infrastructure increasingly influence how we communicate, move and remember; now an inextricable part of our Environment. So it follows that to ignore the languages and ideas that comprise engineering - from Computer Networking and Programming to BioTechnology and Electronics - is to become unable to describe, and thus critically engage, the World we live in. In this lecture Julian will introduce projects and interventions that foreground Engineering, rather than Art, in the creative and critical frame, offering important insights into the hidden machinations and power struggles within our technical environment.

    Adventures in Data Visualization

    Moritz Stefaner will report from his practice as a »truth and beauty operator«, shedding light on the workflow and design rationale behind his latest data visualization projects. Among others, he will discuss emoto (a real-time data visualization platform and a physical data sculpture visualizing the online response to London 2012) as well as his data cuisine activities, exploring food as a means of data expression or if you will — edible diagrams.

    Get Physical! The Renaissance of the Tangible

    As our world becomes increasingly digital and our communication virtual our desire for the tangible gets stronger again. To illustrate that counter movement from the virtual back to the tangible in the field of digital design, projects form ART+COM's 25 years history will be presented starting with the earlier exploration of new media in the virtual realm leading up to the latest development in the tangible world.
