Irene Posch (A) Irene Posch holds a master’s degree in Computer Science and Media with spezialization in experimental media design and in Computer Science Management from the Vienna University of Technology. Joining the Art&Technology group of the Ars Electronica Futurelab, Linz (A) she is involved in the conceptualization and realization of exhibition projects, among them the New Ars Electronica Center FabLab.

Janne Kyttänen (NL) Janne Kyttanen was born 1974 in Hameenlinna, Finland. He started his industrial design studies at the Escola De Disseny, Elisave in Barcelona 1996. He then moved to The Netherlands and graduated from The Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam 2000, where he also currently lives. Janne has been presented with numerous design awards, exhibited around the world and his work has been purchased for numerous permanent design collections around the world such as the MOMA, FIT, MAD and Vitra Design Museum.

Additional to the conference Janne will hold a daily workshop:
Design with 3D Printing, daily 15:00 – 16:30, Ars Electronica Center, MainGallery: FabLab (Level -3)

Emotional Interfaces for generative Design
Hannes Walter and Stephen Williams, founders of Fluid Forms, talk about the role of emotional design, revolutionary production methods and generative product design in their quest to integrate consumers back into the design process.

Additional to the conference they will hold a daily workshop:
Creativ Coding Workshop, daily 16:30 – 18:00, Ars Electronica Center, MainGallery: FabLab (Level -3)

Hannes Walter (AT) A media designer, production technologist and co-founder of Fluid Forms, Hannes reaches into the sole of computer controlled machines, finding and connecting the missing dots to realize their true potential.

Stephen Williams (NZ, AT) A New Zealand born creative coder and co-founder of Fluid Forms, trained in physics, mathematics, computer science and design, walks the fine line between technology, art, design and commerce.

Hide Ogawa (JP, AT) Hide Ogawa is a media artist born in 1977 from Tokyo. He is a representative director of media art group “h.o”. He provides new media experiences through the projects widely. His work is known as a simple and consecutive interaction design combined digital technologies and analog technologies. His project has been exhibited in numerous museums and galleries. On the other hand, he has collaborated with many companies and research institutes to propose new visions concerning information technologies. He received a master’s degree and Ph.D. at Keio university Graduated School of Media and Governance. He worked as a researcher of Keio university and a lecturer of media designing classes in Keio university and Meijigakuin university.
Currently he works as an artist of Ars Electronica Futurelab.

Philip Beesley (CA) Philip Beesley will discuss the Hylozoic Grove environment and how it relates to a series of ongoing immersive, interactive experimental works in his studio. Along with technical details illuminating the precise craft of creating interlinking flexible components, the discussion will focus on the post-humanist cultural traditions that motivate this work. Research by American psychologist Donald Winnicott suggested that objects such as best-loved children’s toys and blankets can play a key role in how infants become aware of themselves as distinct persons. Winnicott’s ‘transitional objects’ present a potent model for developing conceptual paradigms for interactive environments.

Hiroshi Ishiguro (JP) Hiroshi Ishiguro (M’) received a D.Eng. in systems engineering from the Osaka University, Japan in 1991. He is currently Professor in the Graduate School of Engineering at Osaka University (2002–). He is also Visiting Group Leader (2002–) of the Intelligent Robotics and Communication Laboratories at the Advanced Telecommunications Research Institute, where he previously worked as Visiting Researcher (1999–2002). He was previously Research Associate (1992–1994) in the Graduate School of Engineering Science at Osaka University and Associate Professor (1998–2000) in the Department of Social Informatics at Kyoto University. He was also Visiting Scholar (1998–1999) at the University of California, San Diego, USA. He was Associate Professor (2000–2001) and Professor (2001–2002) in the Department of Computer and Communication Sciences at Wakayama University. He then moved to Department of Adaptive Machine Systems in Osaka University as a Professor (2002-2009). And he became Professor of Department of Systems Innovation in the Graduate School of Engineering Science at Osaka University. His research interests include distributed sensor systems, interactive robotics, and android science.
