Here we show some of the ‘behind the scenes’ tests and processes where we used cinematic/video/filmmaking tools as a means to uncover potentials and constraints around an emerging technology. In these experiments we designed and [...]

How does the addition of hidden interactive qualities influence the design of physical RFID objects? There is a need to [...]

Picnic is a conference with about two thousand attendees and multiple venues in the Westergasfabriek in Amsterdam. One of the aims of the Mediamatic workshop was to experiment with ubiquitous technology for social and playful purposes. [...]
