Materialities of Media

Onomy Labs

Over at Anne Balsamo’s place.

Tilty table – tilt the table and the picture projected on it moves. Wonderful.

As Joe Adler pointed out – a new way of scrolling, of flying across a picture or document – and it could be the size of a football field.

New physical and embodied interfaces for digital media – new material media and people-thing relationships – shove, pull, slide, whatever.

I love the lab too – lots of stuff to get you thinking lying around, places to talk, places to make stuff.

Background – XFR – experiments in the future of reading – a project of Research in Experimental Documents, Xerox Palo Alto Research Center, and run as an exhibition that started at San Jose Tech Museum.
