What does “interconnect the planet in the era of ubiquitous technologies and hyper-connection” mean?
How to create communicative dynamics that interconnect bodies, environments, objects and processes able to generate sense and expand our perception of “beauty-that-connects” evoked by the philospher Gregory Bateson?
How to give a shape to this possibility through a new sense, a new omnipresent tactility?
Starting from Cybernetics, Ecology, from the Theory of Systems and Complexity, we will work with Big Data, social networks, wearable technologies, info-aesthetics and their philosophical and theoretical involvement, in order to create a sensitive installation for the planetary conversations about modalities of living the planet, designing and building an augmented technological and interconnective sense, which will be a wearable technology.
Five days of an international Summer School, from 22nd to 26th August 2016, to explore the ubiquitous body in the hyper-connection era.
An interactive installation which will be shown at La Triennale di Milano, on the 3th and 4th of September during the XXI Triennale di Milano International Exhibition, as part of the “Condividi la Conoscenza” event.
The workshop is open to maximum 40 students, professionals and those passionate of arts, technologies, design, scientific disciplines, anthropology, sociology, data science, DIY electronic, philosophy, ecology.
The Summer School is international and it will be held in English.
The Summer School develops along a trans-disciplanary path that is composed of theoretical dialogues and meetings, designing and creative conditions, operational development situations, around the following topic paths:
1. Big Data, Social Media Listening
2. Data Visualization, Infoaesthetics
3. Communication, Branding
4. Design and Prototyping
5. Coding, Physical and Wearable Computing
General public 530€
ISIA students 280€
The cost is inclusive of lunch for each participant for the entire five days of the Summer School: the chef-researcher Giorgio Cipolletta will create recipes with local and seasonal food, inspired by the topics of the Summer School.Accomodation and transport expenses are not included in the price.
Five full days of activity, from Monday 22nd Friday 26th August 2016, at Le Scuderie of Villa Strozzi – ISIA Florence headquarters.
