Lansdown Symposium on evaluation methods in creative work: 19/Jan/09

All-day symposium celebrating curiosity in creative digital work, bringing together artists, designers, computer scientists, developers and academics.

Interactive digital technologies offer an increasing range of opportunities for artists, designers and other creative workers to find out how their work is experienced. Some creative people are keen to embrace these opportunities, while others consider such methods an intrusion. The symposium allows participants to share ideas and expertise and tackle some hard questions.

An international programme of speakers present papers which focus on using interactive technologies and other novel methods to evaluate the user's or audience's response to media including artworks, designs and performance.

Leaders of the field from around the world will contribute, including Professor Ernest Edmonds who directs the Creativity and Cognition Studios at the University of Technology in Sydney, and Kristina Hook, professor in human-machine interaction at Stockholm University/Royal Institute of Technology. The day of eight papers plus discussion includes papers exploring innovative uses of eye-tracking technology; non-verbal elicitation of responses to design; changes in the relation between artist, exhibit, gallery and public brought about by digital interaction (including a speaker from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York). Other speakers will interrogate the basic principles in question.

Participants will benefit from new knowledge on techniques of evaluation, important case studies, and the practical and conceptual issues to be confronted.

This event is organised by the Lansdown Centre for Electronic Arts at Middlesex University and supported by the BCS Computer Arts Society and the Design Research Society.
