“You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.” – R. Buckminster Fuller
Haptic Interface 2014 – Designing Experience combines our current reality, our imagined future and our unimagined future with Fuller’s challenge by bringing together professionals and creative thinkers from different disciplines and cultures to explore the borders between art, science and technology in an innovative trans-disciplinary exhibition of new ideas in relation to the body through the creative use of materials and praxis.
Works in this exhibition consider an intermediary zone; not clearly part of the body (the intimate-self) or of the public (the communal-self) it can be viewed as a space of depth rather than surface.
The affordances of the body may undermine and even revise existing practices of embodiment and lead to new processes for navigating the alternative geographies of post-modernity.
Technology is increasingly becoming smaller and more powerful and access to data, faster and more portable, while scientific discoveries are revealing more about how our mind and bodies work. The resulting interconnected world of objects, beings and spaces is the environment we currently inhabit. It is within the intersecting nodes and spaces of accelerated change, through intelligence, imagination and innovation that we must imagine and design ethical and sustainable future(s) in which we want to live.
