Podium discussion "Media in public space."


Just as the mobile devices have proliferated information display to in-situ access on a personal device, media installations are changing the dynamic of how we interact in the public space. This panel discussion is looking at media design and artworks that are created for specific spaces, either providing full range of multi-user interactivity, serve as a dynamic reactive artwork, or relate to interfaces on mobile devices, but with spatial extensions.

A series of four short presentations from creators and academics are followed by a 20 minute panel discussion to which audience is invited to join in. As the technological platforms are converging, creating cross-platform experiences that exist in the internet, on personal devices as well as physical manifestations in the public give brand new opportunities and challenges how do we define the public domain – in the broader sense of the word – in the future.


Being involved in academia, design industry and conducting his individual experimental work, Jussi Ängeslevä is focussing on embodied interfaces, experiences and services for the public. His work as Creative Director at ART+COM media design agency is consistently yielding international recognition in exhibitions, installations and awards. In parallel he is holding visiting professorship at the Berlin University of the Art teaching Digital Media Design and has been serving as a juror, chair or advisor in various academic and design bodies such as D&AD, ARS Electronica, TEI and Siggraph. His design ethos is leveraging hardware, software, physical and graphic design in the search for elegance in highly specific solutions, where the meaning of a work is inseparable from the medium communicating it.
