RADICAL ATOMS – FROM VISION TO PRACTICE

The first Panel of the theme symposium is the theoretical accompaniment and exploration of the Radical Atoms exhibition. Developed in close cooperation with Hiroshi Ishii (US/JP), the RADICAL ATOMS – FROM VISION TO PRACTICE symposium follows the path of artistically inspired technological development, from idea to creation. Examples from the early years of the Tangible Media Group demonstrate how ideas derived from art led to the development of trailblazing and fundamentally new technological concepts.
