Theme of the month September/October 07
Curating new media design: interaction and architectures

Over the next two months CRUMB explores ideas around curating new  
media design and interactive design in exhibition environments. From  
constructed or built sites to facilitating designed experiences the  
discussion hopes to look at alternative and emerging forms of  
installation design and interactive practices. – a response to the  
potentials and conflicts inherent in media spaces and mediated  
landscapes.

In September the focus is on media architectures: installing  
interactive design and new media in gallery spaces; in October the  
theme develops further around the festival DOTT 07 in Newcastle* and  
other relevant events -- installing design and new media in public  
spaces.

Questions:

Given the overlapping of works in large and sometimes crowded  
exhibitions how are spaces “divided” and/or to a certain degree  
hybrid? Where does a particular work ‘begin’ or ‘collaborate’ or  
interfere with another? What are some interesting design strategies?  
What are the specific challenges of curating “interaction design”  
projects?

If design/furniture is the work itself, in what way does it shape the  
experience of the audience? Is exhibition design essential as an  
entry point for an audience – and how? How is interaction by the  
viewer INVITED by design? Is design a solution, a transmitter, a  
process, or an object?
