The cross-over between the digital and the physical is being increasingly addressed in design disciplines, architecture, arts and urban studies.
Artists and designers increasingly make use of hard data to interpret the world and/or create meaningful and sensuous environments.
Architects attempt to measure neurophysiological data to understand better the human experience in spaces. Designers script parametric processes to translate data into responsive, meaningful and/or aesthetically intriguing installations.
Scientists and architects/ artists/ designers collaborate to visualise data in new and creative ways so as to trigger and reveal further connections, interpretations and readings.
Between Data and Senses, a conference on architecture, neuroscience and the digital worlds, will examine how digital and physical works overlap and what methods, approaches and findings architects can borrow from sciences
The conference is hosted by the University of East London Architecture + Design program and will take place on March 23rd and 24th at 8 Fitzroy Street in London, UK. More information can be found here.
