For the 7th time now, 600 experience designers and creative technologists will join us this October in Munich to take a close look at all things interactive. As always, we’ll not just feature talks and workshops but also a hands-on exhibition showcasing interactive projects from graduates and design studios all the way to companies like Bosch and BMW.
Created by Witaya Junma. ‘Spirotrope’ is a device developed from the hypothesis that an interactive artwork can be created from unrelated objects in a way such that each object is still visible in its essence, whether in its form or its function.
