Code Lab Lecture: Lining Yao - MMCH A14

Code Lab Lecture
Lining Yao: Morphing Matter across Scale, Discipline and Context

HCI Assistant Professor

Abstract:

Technology, one might claim, is designed to recapitulate biology: as we strive to design physical objects and architecture that are adaptive, responsive and ever evolving, we find ourselves immersed in Nature’s way. Yet, after years of practice in transforming materiality for adaptive physical interfaces, we realize that it is the combination of the two worldviews — both natural and engineering approaches — that generates a method including their best facets: adaptation with speed, transformation with accuracy, growth with control and response with augmented purposes.

This talk begins with reflections on natural materials, on their adaptive and transformable behaviors across scales. A few research projects will be described, each representing different levels of integration between natural and engineering approaches in order to achieve interfaces with a dynamic output of physical materiality.

Note: some of the projects included were conducted in collaboration with researchers at MIT Media Lab, where the speaker went for her graduate school. Specific credits will be addressed in the talk.
 

Speakers Bio:

Lining Yao is an Assitant Professor of Human-Computer Interaction at Carnegie Mellon UniversitySchool of Computer Science.  She is the founding director of the Morphing Matter Lab. By developing transformative and adaptive materials, the lab designs interfaces that redefine the interactive relationship between human, other living organisms, environment, objects and intangible data. Her team challenges the definition of traditional human computer interface which was constrained on a computer screen, and encode information and interactivity into physical materials. They call such interactive material as "morphing matter"! In the lab, they design for the myrid of life experiences, including clothes we wear, objects we use, environment we habitate, robots and AI we rely on, and even food we eat.

Lining and her lab work antidiciplinarilly, publishing and exhibiting across science, engineering, design and art. Lining's work appear in both scientific journals (e.g. Science Advancances, Journal of 3D Additive Manufacturing) and top conferences in the field of human computer interaction. She has been awarded Best Paper award (UIST 2013), Nominated Best Demo award (UIST 2013), Best Talk award (CHI 2015) and paper Honorable Mention award (CHI 2015). She has won numerous design awards including Fast Compnary Design by Innovation Award, A Design Award, Core77 Community Choice Prize Winner, Red Dot Award, iF Design Award and IxDA Awards. Lining was recently named Wired innovation fellow. She has exhibited her work at Center Pompidou in Paris, Ars Electronica, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and Dubai Design Week. She curated and implemented bioLogic exhibition for MIT Media Lab 30's anniversary in October, 2015. In addition, she has been collaborating with industrial partners including Target, Food + Future, New Balance, Toyota, Cisco, Estee Lauder and Colgate to explore the future of wearable, mobility, communication, food and cosmetics.

Launch of HIDING IN PLAIN SIGHT - Four Gateway Plaza, Downtown Pittsburgh

Hiding_in_Plain _Sight_STUDIOGRUBER_7.jpg

HIDING IN PLAIN SIGHT

a Betaburgh project by STUDIOGRUBER

“Hiding in Plain Sight” is a pedal-powered pop-up movie theater. Citizens are invited to climb onto a bike and pedal in order to see. Rather than passively consuming moving images from ubiquitous media one must work out and engage. But to generate sufficient electric power and activate the projection, participants need to cooperate. Thus, Hiding in Plain Sight is a public performance that turns passers-by into actors, strangers into team players, encouraging casual encounters and playful interaction among passers-by while raising questions about the nature of public space, our health and energy consumption.

 

Location: Four Gateway Plaza, Downtown Pittsburgh (across from the T-Station)

Steiner Lecture in Creative Inquiry: Greg J. Smith - CFA 111

Greg J.Smith_web_NB.jpg

Greg J. Smith (@gr3gjsmith) is a Toronto-based writer, curator and editor interested in media art and its broader cultural implications. Smith is the Editor-in-Chief of HOLO, a magazine that chronicles ‘emerging trajectories in art, science, and technology,’ and a Contributing Editor at Creative Applications Network, a leading publisher of international media arts news and reviews. Smith lectures widely on media art; over the last decade, he has developed and taught a range of courses that explored data, representation, urbanism, and web culture for several Ontario postsecondary programs.

In this presentation, Smith presents a thoughtful survey of his personal "touchstones" in the history of interactive and computational new media arts. Smith's presentation includes a special focus on projects that involve full-body musical interfaces, a consideration of their interaction paradigms, and a broader commentary on key differences between tools versus instruments in interactive art. In addition, Smith will discuss his publishing activities at CreativeApplications and HOLO, including a discussion about what artists have to do to get noticed, and the fragility of the interconnected information ecosystems that we call home.

Refreshments will be served. Open to the public. 

This lecture is made possible by the Sylvia and David Steiner Speaker Series and the Frank-Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry.

Gindroz Prize Exhibition: Polis Opening Event - The Frame Gallery

POSTERS_Page_2.jpg

The Gindroz Prize Exhibition: Polis features students from the School of Music and School of Architecture, Theodore Teichman and Elizabeth Levy respectively, winners of the 2017 Gindroz Travel Prize. The Opening Event takes place on Saturday, 4 November beginning at 5:00pm. The show runs 3-5 November.

"sonic heterotopias explores the ephemeral and occluded features of the poetics of space through the process of sound recording as a compositional process. This project looks for the rhythms, cycles, paths, and timbres that define spaces (by their circulations, their programs, their acoustics, or their histories) and frames these as the basis of a way to structure music; for this work, these are found in the public transit systems, the churches, and the public spaces in all corners of Europe. The goal is to produce a new way of listening to the world and through that a new attention to that which is mystical, surreal, and evocative in the world around us, but is most often tuned out of our perception, caught up in the chaos of daily modern life.

- Theodore Teichman

Documenting the interventions of shared space across highly populated European cities by analyzing streets and plazas that have been recently adjusted to accommodate the pedestrian. The woonerf creates a sense of circulation and communication between the human, vehicle, and their interaction. Highlighting shared spaces based on nodes, edges, and landmarks demonstrates the commonalities of these public zones and perhaps reveals a safer joint space suited for the human and their means of social interaction.
