The Poetics of Everyday Objects

The Poetics of Everyday Objects

This video was recorded at 22nd Biennial of Industrial Design 2010 - Ljubljana / 22. bienale industrijskega oblikovanja 2010 - Ljubljana. August de los Reyes discusses the evolution of software interface and its implications on industrial design and the further blurring of the lines between the material and immaterial. This talk discusses how we got to where we are today, as well as what is in store for us in the next phase in user experience design. Drawing from various aspects of design, philosophy, and the social sciences, the talk approaches user interface from a unique viewpoint: topics include starfish, spiders, Spanish moss, vampires, werewolves, and video games – all culminating into a glimpse of what is to come.
