Permeating the Screen with Rosana Antoli
This Circuit is run as a part of our consultancy engagement with UX Services. It takes place during UX Istanbul, the annual conference held by UX Services, but the Circuit is free to attend via separate registration.
Do we relate with colleagues, friends and family less if we see only a part of them through the rectangular screen? What happens to the rest of our bodies that fall out of the screen?
Artist Rosana Antoli researches gestures that we repeat in our daily lives, revealing the structures, rhythm and connections they entail in our society. In this dialogue moderated by ArtBizTech, Rosana will share her perspective on bodily movement in shared experience by contrasting concepts of fluidity and rupture. Her presentation will prompt audiences to question if seamlessness in the design of products, cities, and spaces is always desirable. Could there be a natural resistance in our bodies that we are ignoring?
When human connection is established through the screen, might we be better off thinking about the screen as less of a flat, dividing surface and more of a porous material through which we collaborate?
