Critical Artifacts // Augmented Space
We are glad to share the recent launch of two new research projects at the IXDM:
Critical Artifacts – Speculative and Critical Design as a reflective approach towards the design of technology looks into the role of design in questioning paradigms and values embedded in information technologies.
Augmented Space – a scenographical observation examines how the perception and navigation of places is shaped by interactive and locative media technologies. The new Campus of the Arts at the Dreispitz area in Basel serves as a laboratory and test field for the inquiry.
Both projects are funded by the SNSF over a period of three years. More information can be found on the project pages.
