The "InteractiveBody 4.0" is an intensive workshop focuses on the interaction between human and immersive spatial environment. Unlike the normal so-called interactive architectures nowadays which consider responsive as interaction, the workshop would like to push the notion of interactivity a bit further. In other words, the workshop proposes an innovative interactive space as a living creature which has emotions and abilities to react. The crucial questions, such as, how this spatial creature reacts? What is its' motions respond to the human involved in? When and what kind of new relationship between space and human will establish? should be explored and attempt to answer through the workshop. The workshop also tries to reverse the conventional spatial notion of static and passive environment into dynamic and aggressive surroundings. A space with "Pro-activeness" will take place in such a condition.
In terms of design experiment, the workshop keens to ask the participants to think of and design a componential system from bottom-up as an emerging interactive body. Like all natural organisms who build up their bodies with single intelligent entity, the cell, the participants should be able to come up with a systematic design strategy to construct their own interactive architectural bodies based on this componential idea. The tool this workshop will mainly be used is Arduino, Grasshopper & Firefly. All participants will learn from basic to advance techniques of these interactive techniques.
