TEST_LAB: PLAY: European art graduation projects 2007
Thursday, 12 July 2007, 8:00 p.m.
V2_Groundfloor, Eendrachtsstraat 10 , Rotterdam
TEST_LAB: PLAY! will feature a selection of the best European
electronic-art graduation projects of 2007. The pieces have been
selected according to originality and quality, and especially the way
they use the concept of play - that is, the playfulness evoked by the
work. At TEST_LAB: PLAY! these projects will be demonstrated, tested,
and discussed among makers, audience and experts.
Play as a form of social interaction has a rich tradition in various
branches of the arts. But it was only recently that
human-centered-technology designers realized play offered interesting
new approaches and techniques for the development of their field. This
brings them together with contemporary artists who explore play by
experimenting with a wide range of (often wearable) human-machine
interfacing technologies. Such experiments often combine a strong DIY
attitude toward technology design with a desire to take advantage of
people's naive or intuitive understanding of technology through play. In
TEST_LAB: PLAY! the audience and participants will test and discuss the
approaches and techniques used to implement play. They will also discuss
the broader context of the demonstrated work.
