Namur, Belgique
kikk festival 

Master Media Design is showing its exhibition Play Me A Story at the kikk festival, a festival internationally recognized in the world of digital cultures. On this occasion 8 projects of alumni from and students from the Mater will be shown.

A lecture by Ghofran Akil,Interaction Designer and alumni of the Master and Douglas Edric Stanley, professor in the Master Media Design will be given at the kikk festival on October 31st. The conference will focus on the following topic :

While our objects, homes, devices and screens now speak to us, these gadgets often have very little to say. The public and private world is progressively converting our lived environment into a sea of spoken word potential, but its content seems more attuned to command and control utterances than to the history of poetic expression. 

For the past year, the Media Design Master of the HEAD – Genève has been exploring the narrative potential of objects, screens and gestures, when injected with the storytelling force of classical mythology, real-world testimonials, and literary narratives. Our experiments and developments often involve hybrid solutions, as we attempt to find new ways of re-injecting old narratives into new contexts. The principal ingredient for this method is play: playful interfaces, with players enacting stories through playable objects.
