BRAIN by Claudia Osborn (Brisbane, Australia)

BRAIN from Claudia Osborn on Vimeo.

The installation by Australian artist Claudia Osborn is a real-time, interdisciplinary synthesis of a range of different fields such as neuroscience, storytelling, projection mapping, sculpture, sound design + animation: The cross-section slice of the brain lights up in real-time in the scientifically accurate areas (hypothalamus, hippocampus etc.) as individuals recall and describe verbal stories about their own successes and failures in life. This type of artwork has never been achieved before and is exemplar in its uniqueness and completeness of the idea.

Designing Interactive Systems (DIS) 2016 (Brisbane, Australia)

The DIS 2016 theme of “fuse” is about exploring the range of new possibilities along the human and technology spectrum – the blurring of any clear divides between analog and digital, atoms and bits, materiality and virtuality, art and design, academy and industry. From mobiles to wearables, bearables, and even injectables, technology is finding its way to be carried by us, on by, and inside us. At the same time do we welcome more and more robots and humanoids into our lives – from Furby, Roomba, Siri, to Jibo. Are we witnessing a fusion of the cyborg with the matrix? What does the future of interactive systems hold? Join us at DIS 2016 to find out.
