NODE15 | Wrapped in Code – the future of the informed body (Frankfurt, Germany)

April 27, 2015 - May 3, 2015

We bring together practitioners, researchers, educators and artists from around the world who are engaged in disciplines such as Software Development, Media Arts, Generative Design & Data Visualisation, Graphics, Computational and Interaction Design.

With the leitmotif ‘Wrapped in Code – the future of the informed body’, NODE15 is devoted to the negotiation of the body and its fusion with technology.

Innovative technological concepts such as Ambient Intelligence, Wearables and The Internet of Things are no longer a futuristic vision. The human body is gradually becoming exposed to processes of evaluation and optimization. Consider the grandmother with a pacemaker a new cyborg. The range of such intimate human-machine relationships is mind-boggling. Our goal is to step back and ask ourselves: What direction are we as human beings heading? What impact will this have on society? How can we apply this knowledge in our art works?

You’ll be injected with ideas and knowledge on the creative use of software and hardware along with vvvv workshops where you can learn how to combine it all, for beginners and experts alike.
