BRING YOUR OWN LAPTOP

The HCI (Human Computer Interaction) project is a collaboration between
FACT and the School of Computing and Mathematical Sciences at Liverpool
John Moore=92s University that seeks to explore issues of computer
usability. Artists Josh Nimoy (US), Simon Poulter (UK) and Caen Botto
(Argentina) have been commissioned to propose experiments, based on
scientific principles of human-computer interaction, that analyze how a
variety of different users, from different backgrounds and levels of
technological training, interact with 'the machine'.


Josh Nimoy will be presenting IconFunction, a series of interactive
game-like audio-visual environments that analyzes the relationship
between the functionality of user interfaces, and their iconographic
facades. The body of work attempts to eliminate the divide between the
outer and inner parts of 'the machine.'

Caen Botto and Simon Poulter will also be present to inform us about
their projects up to date.
