Interaction Design Workshops SUPSI
2011 Through the approach of “learning by doing”, participants will acquire on a short term methodologies and techniques to manipulate and control all elements, both physical and digital, composing the software/hardware system of an interactive environment, such as sensors, projections, lights, and sound. Each workshop will focus on a precise issue in the field of interactive environments. Through the support of teachers, participants will acquire competences on technological and design issues in order to produce a functioning prototype.
The workshops are promoted by the Laboratory of Visual Culture/Interaction Design Lab within the activities of the Master of Advanced Studies in Interaction Design, the new MAS program offered by SUPSI, starting next September 2011.
The participation is open to all concerned people regardless their educational background (visual arts, design, information technologies, engineering).
Participants will receive a certificate of attendance, recognizing two ECTS. The credits can be transferred to the Master of Advanced Studies in Interaction Design.

Processing digital environments
Generative and interactive design
Andreas Gysin / www.ertdfgcvb.com
The evolution of digital technologies is providing artists and designers with many possibilities to create interactive environments featuring creative contents: software for generative graphics, animation algorithms and several kinds of responsive technologies allow to develop worlds inhabited by fictitious living entities able to interact with each other or the users. The workshop proposes the implementation of a digital environment featuring widgets-creatures developed by participants through the software Processing.

Designing responsive objects and environments
Massimo Banzi / www.arduino.cc
How to design objects and spaces that respond to inputs from the physical world? How to connect real environments with digital information by using interactive technologies? The workshop Designing responsive objects and spaces is dedicated to the design and prototyping, through the Arduino platform, of systems that sense, interpret and react to the real world by providing the user with information or visual, tangible and metaphorical experiences.

Mixed media installations
Paolo Solcia / www.paolosolcia.com
The most interesting opportunities offered by the application of new interactive technologies to art and design is to merge different languages, to manage several media – sounds, images, videos, lights, colors – and to create one composite thought by combining digital materials and real environments in real time.
