I’d like to invite LeonardoNet participants to the following event in Liverpool. Please contact Marta to book a place via firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can get a preview at http://www.hci-fun.org.uk/demo.html which is still under construction so any bug and usability reports would be welcomed.
HCI @ FACT
*Josh Nimoy*: Icon==Function
4 October 2005, 18:00 – 20:30, The Box
FREE (pre-booking required)
The HCI (Human Computer Interaction) project is a collaboration between FACT and the School of Computing and Mathematical Sciences at Liverpool John MooreÂ¹s University that seeks to explore issues of computer usability. Artists Josh Nimoy (US), Simon Poulter (UK) and Caen Botto
(Argentina) have been commissioned to propose experiments, based on scientific principles of human-computer interaction, that analyze how a variety of different users, from different backgrounds and levels of technological training, interact with Å’the machineÂ¹.
Josh Nimoy will be presenting Icon==Function, a series of interactive game-like audio-visual environments that analyzes the relationship between the functionality of user interfaces, and their iconographic facades. The body of work attempts to eliminate the divide between the outer and inner parts of Â³the machine.Â²
Caen Botto and Simon Poulter will also be present to inform us about their projects up to date.
Made possible by a Partnerships for Public Awareness grant from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council
