It was a great pleasure to welcome the IDEEA Lab from Tokyo Metropolitan University to the DDS earlier this week, in collaboration with the Creative Futures institute of the University of the West of Scotland.
Prof. Kumiko Kushiyama gave a fantastic talk and presentation of works from the history of the IDEEA Lab and then there was an exhibition of recent works – this was a pure joy to experience. The IDEEA Lab explore novel ways of interacting with computers, and the works exhibited focussed on novel ways to interact to create sound and music.
Works on show included GOCEN, Freqtric Drums which use skin contact between people to create sounds, LuminouStep, and the fantastic PocoPoco:
Many thanks to Professor Katarzyna Kosmala for making this visit possible.
