ENACTIVE SPACES: OR HOW DOES ACTIVATED MATTER AFFECT CREATIVE PRACTICES?
Lecture by Karmen Franinovic / Wednesday 7 March, 14:00
Responsive environments and objects are still a collage of hardware components that activate their materials and structures, lights and sounds. In this seminar, Karmen proposes a shift from such integration of actuating hardware to an experimentation on the threshold between the mechanic, chemical and electronic.
