Hiroshi Ishii’s “Tangible Bits” project seeks to realize seamless interfaces between humans, digital information, and the physical environment by giving physical form to digital information—making “bits” directly manipulable and perceptible. His new artistic vision of Human Computer Interaction (HCI) seeks to transform the way we see and interact with the world. Ishii’s visionary goal is to invent new design media for artistic expression, as well as for scientific analysis.
The pioneering work of “Tangible Bits” Media Group takes advantage of the richness of human senses and skills in interaction with the physical world, and in computational reflection enabled by real-time sensing and digital feedback.
Ishii will explore examples of Tangible Bits projects developed and exhibited throughout the world in media arts, design, and science communities.
