Presentation Title:

  • Physical Web Interfaces



  • Physical Web Interfaces is a concept that attempts to change our relationship to conventional Internet interfaces by providing a framework for bringing virtual processes into the real world. By attaching new physical inputs to things we perceive as truly virtual, we add a socio-critical dimension to the interaction of people and machine. This infiltration helps to augment our understanding of data pathways, explore virtual handicaps, regain control of how we access information, manifest metaphors as real entities, and integrate the Internet into already familiar interfaces. Combining form with function, these projects illustrate how simple interaction can lead to complex outcomes.
