CIID Virtual Exhibition @ The Museum of Interactivity

CIID Interaction Design Programme 2020-21 

Virtual Exhibition @ The Museum of Interactivity 

The live event is closed, but visit the museum here!

Friday, March 26th (Live for 3 hours):  07:00-10:00 San Francisco (PDT — Pacific Daylight Time) / 08:00-11:00 Costa Rica / 15:00-18:00 Denmark / 19:30-22:30 India / 22:00-01:00 Singapore / Hong Kong 23:00:02:00 Japan

The Museum of Interactivity will showcase final projects from the graduates from our inaugural Interaction Design Programme (IDP) in Costa Rica.

Covering environmental and social issues, art, education and the extension of the human senses – the projects demonstrate the multi-disciplinary, exploratory, and potentially disruptive nature of Interaction Design.

This is a fantastic opportunity to be inspired by projects that have taken a life-centered approach in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals – and to meet and network with the designers (who will be available on zoom/hangout) in real-time. 

We hope that these projects won’t stop at this exhibition and that some of these concepts  will transform into actual products and services that will impact positively on people and the planet.

The Museum of Interactivity (MoI) is a virtual space that collects past and present ideas about interaction design. The MoI wants to be a place of inspiration for the next generation of creators of interactions. If you were not able to make it to the live virtual exhibition the projects will remain up on the link above.

If you are not able to make it to the live virtual exhibition the projects will remain up on the MoI and will be posted on the CIID website after the live event.

Celebrate Arduino’s Birthday with CIID

Tuesday, 23rd Mar 2021

main

Arduino Day is a worldwide birthday celebration of Arduino – organized directly by the community together with the Arduino team. It brings people together to share their experiences and learn more about the open-source platform.

CIID will be hosting two types of events on Saturday, March 27th.

You can select which one you’d like to attend here!

1. Global Virtual Arduino Event:

Time: 8:00 am to 11:30 am
A fast-paced, fun series of talks by recent graduates and faculty of the Interaction Design Programme who will share some of their physical computing and connected objects projects done over the past year. Some of the projects are experimental and others are meant to create a more meaningful dialogue. Either way, we hope to inspire and share knowledge with those who are interested in prototyping and the tangibility of technology.

2. In-Person Arduino Event

Time: 8:00 am to 1:00 pm
We are offering a limited amount of seats for people to join us at the CIID studio in Costa Rica to meet some of the team, watch the talks – and take a look at our digital fabrication lab which has been generously supported by the CRUSA Foundation.

Come and see our space, bring a mask, enjoy some good snacks and drinks in our beautiful court-yard – and maybe even try out some of the tools and machines!

Due to COVID protocols we are offering a limited amount of seats. If you sign up and are unable to join, please let us know so we can free your spot.

We are excited to announce that we will celebrate the first students to graduate from the Interaction Design Programme (IDP) in Costa Rica at the end of February. After an intense curriculum, 26 talented designers from all over the world will demonstrate their new found knowledge and skill-sets through their Final Exhibition.

This exhibition will showcase a wide range of design solutions through an impressive collection of tangible and visual prototypes. Covering environmental and social issues, art, education and the extension of the human senses – the projects will demonstrate the multi-disciplinary, exploratory, and potentially disruptive nature of Interaction Design.

Many of the projects take a life-centered approach and have considered the UN Sustainable Development Goals. We hope that these projects won’t stop at this exhibition and that people will continue to develop their concepts into actual products and services that will impact positively on people and the planet.

To ensure the safety of our guests and graduates, we need to limit the number of visitors in the building to 25 per hour so it is vital that you sign up with the time you and your guests would prefer to attend. If there are no spaces for that time, we will offer you another possibility.

Each session will start on the hour (e.g. 11am, 12, 1pm, 2pm etc) and you will have 45 minutes to see the projects inside the studio. We then encourage you to visit our garden where you will see the remainder of the projects and enjoy a refreshment.

If you are not able to attend the exhibition in person, you will still have the opportunity to see the work as we will be hosting a virtual exhibition at the end of March.

In real-life or virtually – we hope you can join us to experience the projects and meet our talented designers.

…………………………….

Safety Protocol:

The exhibition will comply with COVID19 guidelines to ensure the safety of our guests and students:

  • Before entering, someone from the CIID team will take your temperature and give you hand sanitizer.
  • The layout of the well-ventilated space will be one-way, leading towards the garden.
  • Please respect any signs on the tables/floor when interacting with a project.
  • We will limit the number of guests in the space at any one time to avoid crowds.
  • We will respect a minimum of 2m distance between projects.
  • The projects will be sanitized between visitors and the tables/floors cleaned every hour.

This year’s Interaction Design Programme participants were invited to submit projects to the Good Things Fest.

This is part of Things.con (a global initiative to explore and promote the development of fair, responsible, and human-centric technologies for the IoT and beyond).

The virtual event will run from 7-11th December, and also includes a Talent Tuesday where among other great work, you will have the chance to see the Internet of Plants project by CIID IDP participants Mohit Choudhary, Nitin Surendran & Sachin Jose(pictured below).
