This was the first year I attended INST-INT and I was impressed with the caliber of the presentations, the feeling of community and the amazing, innovative work shown. INST-INT 2014 was a wonderful combination of the best installation, environment and immersive experience design with a focus on how it works (and when it doesn’t work), who gets involved, and how can we collaborate together. (At least 4 speakers asked for collaborators while on stage.)
It was an amazingly relaxed, collegial vibe with everyone feeling both inspired and in awe of the work shown, the efforts put forth and the multi-disciplinary talents of the speakers. Getting off the screen and into the world around us was the goal and the myriad responses, solutions and artistic efforts were amazing: Art, design, code, engineering, lighting, audio, movement, lasers, dirt, and hundreds of other subjects wove together to make some of the most impressive works I have seen.
Design driven engagement; create frameworks for participation and communication.
