The Future of Physical Digital Place Making

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Our digital world is spilling onto our physical world. With the advent of the internet of things and the capacity of objects to have memory and intelligence, we are entering a world where physical spaces will soon have operating systems. With the power of computation comes the opportunity of creating interesting ways in which people can interact with physical spaces. This core conversation is an attempt to bring together people interested in knowing more about physical interventions using digital technologies. At Urban Matter Inc., we use a variety of materials and processes to create experiences, ranging from the use of prototyping tools like laser cutters and 3D printers to create physical forms, projection mapping to create imagery, and open source hardware like arduino to program experiences. Amongst our other work, we’ll share our most recent interactive light installation for Seaholm Redevelopment Project in Austin to kickstart the conversation.
