Programming - Body Semantic

Wednesday, July 31, 2019
6:30-10.30 pm
At Collective Future
1325, Palmetto Street - 90013 Los Angeles
As our lives become increasingly mapped, mirrored, and interwoven with intelligent machines, our need for new interaction forms continue to grow. Body Semantics is an exploration of human movement as a natural interface between our bodies and technology, whether via mobile devices, gaming consoles, and soon, in intelligent environments and whole virtual worlds.

Where are the places and ways to locate personal (body) agency in public and private spaces? In mixed, physical, and virtual spaces?

How can we affirm identity through gesture?

How do we manage tensions between designing universal standards vs personalized gestures?

swissnex San Francisco, the Consulate General of Switzerland in San Francisco, and Collective Future, will bring together a group of diverse experts and practitioners to explore Body Semantics in the digital age in an evening filled with conversation, dinner, and participatory food explorations to investigate our bodies — and the language of movements, gestures, and the interface/interactions in the context of future intelligent and immersive environments.
