Haptic InterFace – Workshop 2014

Event Details

Haptic InterFace workshop will take place from 1st to 10th December 2014 in the Wearables Lab, an innovative trans-disciplinary laboratory at the Academy of Visual Arts, Hong Kong Baptist University. This invitation represents an opportunity to spend ten intensive days developing new ideas in relation to the body through the creative use of materials and praxis. Our aim is to provide a space where professionals and creative thinkers from a range of backgrounds explore the borders between art, science and technology.

This is a participant-driven workshop where you will be encouraged to collaborate, mashup materials and technology and find ways to let innovation happen in real-time, facilitated by a team of experts and support staff. The lab is equipped with state of the art technology, and depending on your research area, can draw on specific equipment available from the broad range of creative studios at the Academy of Visual Arts and partner institutions in order to support your creative investigations.
