He's also part of RUC's Experience Lab where interactive exhibitions like the Sea Stallion are created. Both Dzl & Vanessa are teaching workshops at Roskilde University on subjects like Rapid Prototyping, Concept Development and using Low-Fi Prototyping tools. You can visit RUC here.
Some of our lectures at ITU are part-lecture and part-workshop where we take half the time to introduce ourselves and the topic and the rest playing, introducing new topics through hands-on experience in the lecture hall, with whatever is at hand. We believe this helps to switch up the normal routine of listening to an external lecturer go on for two hours and gives students something to connect over, after the class. You can visit ITU online here, and see some of our slides from our "Arduino Inspiration" lecture here.
GeekPhysical was one of several speakers presenting at ThoughtMade's debut at InKonst in Malmo, Sweden. We introduced our Biometric Social Interaction system and discussed how important cross collaboration and invention is. We introduced our thoughts on the 'revolution' taking place now - moving from throw-away-technology to hackable technology, reversing back to the age of innovation experienced in the 1950's and re-imagining what is possible with DIY and collaborative work environments and attitudes.
We spoke about our work with Biometric Social Interaction while it was still in its stages of infancy, introducing our tools, technology and methods, and giving people the opportunity to play with the biometric sensors. We had a great discussion and met some fantastic people in the process!
In their lecture, Dzl & Christian explored and explained their experience with engineering, inventing, and problem solving as well as artistic idea development, user experience, adaptation and evolution of project and emergent use qualities.
Our goal is for our talks to be inspiring - to transformers listeners into learners.
We aim to create a sense of enthusiasm and empowerment amongst those present. We want to show our projects to inspire and share our knowledge to teach. As often as possible, we'd love for our lectures to include a hands-on learning element.
We'd love to discuss opportunities to inspire with you. Contact Vanessa via mail.
