Design IO: Interactive Installations and Experimental Storytelling

A session at FITC Toronto 2011

Monday 2nd May, 2011

4:10pm to 5:10pm (EST)

For many people interactive is synonymous with web, but for designers Emily Gobeille and Theodore Watson of Design IO interactive has a completely different meaning. To them interactive means engaging with the world around you, pushing the possibilities of design and technology and creating magical experiences that invite people to jump in and play. Using openFrameworks (an open source toolkit for creative coding) Emily and Theodore transform code and design into experimental, playful interactive experiences that exist beyond the screen and create new narratives for public space.

For this talk, Design IO will showcase some of their recent projects, like the interactive ecosystem "Funky Forest" and "Rise & Fall" an interactive cover experience for Boards Magazine. They will also take you behind the scenes to see how their projects are made and how their work both draws from and feeds back into the openFrameworks community.
