Concluding the invigorating Hybrid Toys workshop on 23 | 24 | 25 January 2008, Jean-Baptiste LaBrune and Dana Gordon will lecture on the integration of digital components in material objects reflecting on projects from the workshop.
Jean-Baptiste LaBrune's dissertation is about creative epistemology, i.e. the way children document and explore their creative processes and artefacts. His research consists in designing reflexive tools to support these activities and let children generate new tools.
Dana Gordon graduated from the masters program of Interaction Design Institute Ivrea in the summer of 2006. During the last two years, as part of her Interaction design studies, she focused on physical computing and particularly tangible interface design. She exhibited her work at the Victoria and Albert museum (‘Touch me’ exhibition 2006), and Salone del Mobile 2005 and 2006. She collaborated with companies such as Tecno and Droog Design. Currently based in Paris, she develops new tangible design projects and consults for artistic interactive installations.
