The talk will be happening in Hörsaal 1, so come there if you want to ask questions. It will also be livestreamed above. All the other rooms are there to have a classic ZHdK apéro experience. The rooms will open at 17:00. Let's chat and have some fun!
Ted Davis is the first guest in our new online talk format FIBI BI DIR.
He is an American media artist / designer / educator based in Basel, Switzerland, where he teaches interaction design and coordinates the UIC/HGK International Master of Design program within the Visual Communication Institute, The Basel School of Design HGK FHNW. His research and teaching activities include visual search for interfacing future image databases, the volatility of digital media through glitch and reactivating older ‘new media’ through newer programming means. His open source projects (basil.js, XYscope, P5LIVE) enable designers to program within Adobe InDesign, render vector graphics on vector displays, and collaboratively create live coded visuals with p5.js. With international exhibits, lectures and workshops, he empowers students to take hold of the computer’s ability to design possibilities beyond that of the hand or mouse.
On our special site which you can join below we have different Zoom rooms for the talk and the apéro. After the talk Andreas Bütler will turn the DJ tables to have some sound and Ted Davis will live-code the visuals to the sound. We look forward to a great evening.
