***Christoph Bartneck / TelMeA Theatre

Christoph Bartneck works as part of the Department of Industrial Design
at the TU/eindhoven. He will be presenting his project TelMeA Theatre. In
cooperation with the ATR Media Information Science Lab in Japan Christoph
has developed the TelMeA Theatre, an asynchronous online community site
where you can talk with other participants through your own avatars. Not
only can you use gestures and facial expressions to communicate, but also
the character agents will speak and interact with each other.

***Wilfried Hou Je Bek / http://www.socialfiction.org /

Wilfried Hou Je Bek left school at 16 to become an astronaut but this
turned out to be bad careermove and he founded socialfiction.org instead.
Socialfiction.org is a website (obviously) as well as the organising party
behind generative psychogeographical walks, events and presentations.
Right now socialfiction.org is busy running The Crystalpunk Workshop for
Soft Architecture. This workshop, which principles will be presented
during dorkbot, will evolve in a period of 3 months an empty room from
nothingness into unknown states of technological enhancement. It has an
open door policy and everybody is welcomed to participate in it.

***Enrike Hurtado Mendieta & Thor Magnusson / IXI software /

Enrike Hurtado Mendieta and Thor Magnusson are musicians and programmers
who founded ixi software in year 2000. Ixi software is a collective of
people interested in the creation of musical instruments. The focus is on
screen based graphical user interfaces for open source audio programming
languages. Both physical and virtual interfaces are of interest and on
the website there are 15+ applications that can be downloaded for free.
Ixi will talk about the philosophy behind their work, show some of the
instruments, explain the history of ixi and then discuss
technical or philosophical aspects, all according to what the audience is
most interested in discussing.

***Alexander Rulkens

Alexander Rulkens is a 4th year student in Industrial Design at the
TU/eindhoven. He is constantly searching for answers to questions like: 
what is the purpose of design? why do humans have the urge to design the
world around them? why are there so many bad designs? what makes
something a good design anyway? The project he will be presenting is a
luminaire built to allow a user to play with light. Each movement
directly influences the light. Pull it, push it, stretch it, launch it,
create the light you want. 

*Dorkbot Eindhoven is an initiative of Art & Technology Festival STRP in
