The Wearables Lab at Hong Kong Baptist University is hosting an international event called Haptic InterFace 2012. It consists of a 10-day workshop and an exhibition running parallel.
Haptic InterFace Workshop will be take place in November. International specialists from various disciplines coming together for 10 intensive days of hands on creativity to prototype new ideas about the body and technology. As researchers we work in increasingly individualised yet networked societies, but are still using old maps to navigate these new spaces. The underlying hypothesis of Haptic InterFace is that an ethos of collaboration and real-time feedback may generate effective and engaging research environments by blending haptic and cognitive praxis with play. 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 workshop will run parallel with the Haptic InterFace Exhibition. It will feature art/design/multi-media work in the form of body related works from leading artists and designers around the world. Concepts/prototypes developed in the Wearables Lab will be added to the core exhibition at the end of the workshop.
