About this Event

5:00 ~ 5:30PM

Kalli Retzepi will present clickhere, a Chrome plugin she developed that automatically transforms a web page to an abstract attentional tapestry. The project takes on an interface critique standpoint by asking the following questions: how do our habitual online spaces transform themselves when reduced to only a few building blocks? More specifically, what does a browser window look like when all attention-hungry elements are emphasized?

The talk is followed by a 15 minutes Q&A.

5:45 ~ 6:15PM

Kate Hollenbach will present USER_IS_PRESENT, a series of video portraits created with custom Android video capture software and Processing. USER_IS_PRESENT documents the activities of three different users by blending the simultaneous front camera, back camera, and screen recordings with a custom technique. The rendering technique creates an effect where the recordings from the device depict a space that is between physical and virtual realities: it blends elements of user, interface, and environment. The work inherently asks the viewer what their own portrait might look like, provoking an examination of their relationship to their own mobile device.

The talk is followed by a 15 minutes Q&A.
