Built into technological development is the tension between technical innovation and relevance to the people and groups for whom we innovate At the Interactive Telecommunications Program at NYU, we attempt to manage this tension by involving users as leading voices and active participants in the design process. In this talk, I will present a number of projects from our Physical Computing, Social Computing, and Assistive Technology areas, and discuss our ongoing attempts to ground innovation driven computing in a social context.
Researcher and physical interaction design consultant for The American Museum of the Moving Image, EAR Studio, Diller + Scofidio Architects, Eos Orchestra, and other clients. Came to interactive multimedia after several years of theatre lighting, working for the Spoleto Festival USA, the American Repertory Theatre, and others. Main area of research and consulting is physical interaction and human-computer interface, especially as related to public space and/or live performance. Recent projects include a a series of networked banquet table centerpieces and musical instruments for Eos Orchestra; an email clock; and "Not Your Mother's Dollhouse", a series of interactive dioramas, created in collaboration with M.R.
