This year the Civic Interaction Design Research Group is involved in three events at the Media Architecture Biennale 2023, two symposiums and a book launch described below.
The Media Architecture Biennale is a week-long event featuring keynotes, workshops, symposia, panels, awards, and exhibitions. The event aims to offer a platform for communities of research and practice concerned with media and the built environment.
Registrations for the MAB23 are open until June 8th.
Symposium 1 | Nature Data Narratives: What urban digital art can contribute to climate engagement?
JUNE 14 | 13:15 – 14:30 CEST | Zoom
Nature Data Narratives will explore the potential of ‘how urban digital arts can contribute to climate engagement’. The speakers will open different perspectives on how we can collect and visualize data in meaningful creative scenarios, how the engagement can be brought to a closer public sphere, and what impact eco-art can have in a global context.
