user_mode = emotion + intuition in art + design is an international symposium at the Tate Modern and Science Museum 9-11th May, examining what is meant by emotional engagement, and how it can affect the content of interactive work. Among the multi-disciplinary participants are critic Lev Manovich, artists Golan Levin, Natalie Bookchin and Sara Diamond from the Banff Centre. There will also be networked role-playing, smart textiles, wearable technologies and a specially commissioned work: Remote Home. I find the Tate Modern emotional at the best of times due to the lack of digital works in their collection, but maybe that is about to change?!
