On the edge of interactive and intelligent design – Ralph Matthews
Bringing a young designer’s perspective, Ralph will speak on what he believes is currently cutting edge in the field of interactive and intelligent design, and will talk about the artists that inspire him, such as Eness and the creators of ‘we feel fine’, Jonathan Harris and Sep Kamvar. With the advent of new technology, designers are increasingly employing novel ways to engage their audience. Interactive design continues to search for new ways to communicate ideas, encouraging people to explore and learn. Intelligent design or design drawn from nature has proven its power to communicate and worth over millennia. There is currently a move in some quarters of the design world to utilise this significant resource for use in a contemporary context. “10-30 million species have designed or created well-adapted solutions. It’s taking the design principles, the genius of the natural world and learning something from it.” Janine Benyus, The Biomimicry Institute.
