Between Data and Senses: Architecture, Neuroscience and the Digital Worlds International Conference
International conference organised by UEL. Supported by Arup, RIBA, and the Museum of Architecture
Call for papers
The cross-over between the digital and the physical is being increasingly addressed in design disciplines, architecture, arts and urban studies.
Practices such as the above attempt to break down the dichotomy between data and the sensuous. They translate elusive, ephemeral and intangible aspects of a place into solid data. In other instances the solid data are interpreted and represented in a ways so as to be perceived and experienced by the different senses.
In this context, methods and conceptual frameworks of different disciplines need to engage in a dialogue; and through these cross-disciplinary practices new strategies and processes emerge.
Architecture and Neuroscience/ Neurophysiology: We welcome contributions which emerge from the collaboration between architects and neuroscientists. How does the mapping of the brain response help designers gain a better understanding of human experience in spaces?
Digital and Physical: From Data to Aesthetics/ From Data to Experience: We invite contributions which address the use of data to analyse, understand and represent the dynamics of urban spaces. Contributors from practices are invited to discuss what types of relevant research projects would be most valuable for their design projects. We also invite contributions which discuss the use of solid data to produce engaging and immersive representations or experiences.
Cross-disciplinary networks: We invite participants who are keen to develop collaborations between researchers and practitioners from the design and building industries. We invite researchers who intend to discuss their projects with practitioners and test or implement them through a live project. We invite professionals from relevant industries who are keen to collaborate with researchers and develop with them research projects which will have a clear impact on the design project that they are currently developing.
(If your proposal falls within this theme, please identify what kind of collaboration/network you are currently looking to develop. If you are a researcher identify what type of design project would be relevant to your current investigation; if you are a practitioner identify what type of questions/themes you would like to discuss with a researcher.)
