Media Technology MSc

Presentation: Expressive shape-changing surfaces, Feb 11

Part of the Media Technology MSc exhibition "50%" Presented by V2_ institute for the unstable media Public graduation presentation: Developing an Expressive Independent Shape-changing Surface by Alice Bodanzky Saturday February 11th, 16:00 Advances in material science and engineering are allowing computation to be embedded everywhere. Computers will soon be designed to take any shape, thus radically changing how we interact with our material environment. To explore these developments in a meaningful way, we must first understand the properties and possibilities of computationally enabled materials. This research has led to a proposal for an actuated shape-changing surface itself and investigations into its expressive qualities. It focuses on the surface's ability to move in space following programmed variations in terms of texture and topology patterns. This graduation presentation by Media Technology MSc student Alice Bodanzky is public. Everyone is welcome, and attendance is free.
