You are invited to an afternoon of creative and narrative exercises aimed at unraveling stories of humans interacting with technology, specifically technologies of privacy, online identity and personal information. The aim is to trigger a discussion with researchers and experts in a more informal and intuitive way than traditional academic discussion. The findings of the workshop will help designers Austin Houldsworth (http://www.austinhouldsworth.co.uk/) and David Benqué (http://www.davidbenque.com/) in their research towards speculative design projects as part of the 'envisioning' part of the VOME project.
The workshop will be held on the 9th of March, from 1.30 to 5pm, at the Royal College of Art, London.
There is no fee for participation but places are limited. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm a place.
No artistic ability required.
The Visualisation and Other Methods of Expression project (VOME) is a three-year research project, funded by EPSRC, ESRC and the Technology Strategy Board, to explore how people engage with concepts of information privacy and consent in on-line interactions.
