KIKK festival 2013 in Namur, Belgium
Just came back from the KIKK festival in Namur. This was a really great event, with excellent conferences and workshops. I also had the chance to conduct interviews with Ensadlab colleague Emeline Brulé, both for Alpha Beta Magazine and our research lab.
We are currently transcribing and processing interviews with Evan Roth, Ivan Poupyrev, Jessica Walsh and others. The main topics discussed included: education, technological push, rapid prototyping and engaging people in public spaces. We also participated in a workshop led by Ubi de Feo called “from 0 to C” on using tangible objects and real-world metaphors to teach programming.
An exhibition space was set up just 5 minutes from the main venue. Here is a short video showcasing some of the projects on display.
Overall an outstanding festival, very well put together in a friendly atmosphere. Hat tip to the organizers and to the sponsors, looking forward to KIKK 2014!
