Designforum 174 ONLINE – Interactive Architecture.
Lively Artefacts and Experiments in Interactive Architecture
– Dr. Ruairi Glynn, The Bartlett. University College London
Lecture in English
We’re witnessing whirlwind progress in robotics promising driverless cars, autonomous flying vehicles, and seemingly endless other forms of intelligent kinetics to soon co-habit our built environment. Ruairi Glynn will talk about how these technologies are expanding art and architecture's aesthetics of space, form, and material, to encompass concerns of behaviour. In particular Glynn has been fascinated with an uncanny sense of life, or animacy, found - often accidentally - in the objects and spaces we design to have their own agency.
Ruairi Glynn is a visual artist whose work has been exhibited internationally including the Centre Pompidou Paris, the National Art Museum of China Beijing and Tate Modern London. His interactive installations reflect on rapid developments in robotic technologies examining the emerging aesthetics of animate behaviour in art, architecture and design. He is director of the Interactive Architecture Lab at the Bartlett, University College London.
Twice a year, the Designforum Dessau offers all interested parties a programme all about design - from conferences and lectures to workshop discussions.
