2012: CURIOUS RITUALS, Nicolas Nova

Visiting Researcher

This research project is about gestures, postures and digital rituals that typically emerged with the use of digital technologies (computers, mobile phones, sensors, robots, etc.) The aim of the project is to envision the future of gestures and rituals based on a documentation of current digital habits, and the making of a short design fiction film to speculate about their evolution. The project will lead to a book.
