Time: 14:00 – 17:00 BST
Location: Royal College of Art, London
Who is this workshop for?
Academics, practitioners, designers, technologists involved in the development of future technology interventions, applications products and experiences designed to influence our personal decision making in response to data feedback.
What is it about?
This workshop is concerned with our relationship with materials, touch and physicality in a digital age.
The premise of the workshop is to test a platform which proposes moving away from the typical screen-based interface of digital technologies to consider alternative sensory feedback systems and their application potential. Using a novel textile sensor system to generate physical activity data, participants in multidisciplinary teams will develop prototypes for alternative data experience.
What will I get from it?
The takeaway from the workshop will be methods to consider expressive and sensorial feedback systems in projects which engage digital technologies; immaterial concepts; representation of data.
These processes would be valuable for those considering the development of future technology interventions, applications products and experiences designed to influence our personal decision making in response to data feedback.
This workshop is supported by LDoc Design in collaboration with Footfalls and Heartbeats hosted at The Royal College of Art during London Design Festival, 2018.
Participants are invited to visit the exhibition Design Research Evolution on display at Hockney Gallery, Royal College of Art, open 10am to 6pm 20th-23rd September 2018.
