Imagining Our Future Interactions With Technology As An Ongoing Dialogue [PSFK London]
Artist Katrin Baumgarten talks to PSFK about how the technology we use daily may someday communicate its needs back to its user.
We are excited to have artist and designer Katrin Baumgarten as a speaker at PSFK CONFERENCE LONDON 2012. Katrin is internationally recognized for her work exploring the evolution of our relationship with technology as we become so accustomed to using it, with projects like The Disgusted Object featured at the MoMA. On 13th September, Katrin will discuss how technology may someday communicate its needs back to its users.
What has been the focus of your recent work?
I am something in between a technology artist and a technical designer. I am interested in our relationship with technology and exploring what it means to live so close with technology. Our daily lives are influenced by having it in the background, but we don’t actually perceive it anymore. It’s disappearing in ‘smart boxes.’
