i-Design 09 is an essential one day conference and showcase for anyone with an interest or passion for interactive design and the digital arts. The programme aims to inspire, entertain and explore how our digital future looks set to unfold and the central role interactive design will take in our cultural, work and social life.

Cybersonica’s contribution to i-Design 09 includes:

  • Virtually Real – an exhibition of digital interactive artworks and installations, technology showcases and demonstrations in the Old Gymnasium that present our unique – and often sonic – viewpoint on the i-Design 09 theme;
  • afternoon Artist Talks in Deep End;
  • Two 5D Interludes by MOTH & Teenage Engineering (tbc) within the i-Design Conference programme;
  • as part of the i-Design 09 early evening Film Screenings in the Old Cinema – a re-enactment by MOTH & VC Kristi of Plinth – their recent site-specific audiovisual performance responding to the De la Warr Pavilion (the UK’s first public building designed in the Modernist style).

and features the following contributing artists, works and collaborators:

  • Two interactive works by SquidsoupGhosts – text-based communication in the digital age – and a commission for PortablePixelPlayground Glowing Pathfinder Bugs – which enables you to engage with a hybrid centipede/caterpillar in a recreation of its natural habitat – the sandy desert of Faroffistan.
  • Soda’s Generative Art System – a custom and highly reconfigurable native windows application that takes feeds of still and video images and text and montages them together in real time, never repeating.
  • Fiddian Warman’s Neurotic pogoing robot – a 2-metre tall punk loving robotic version of his younger self (tbc).
  • The Sancho Plan’s Spacequatica installation – play drumpads to explore an audiovisual aquarium populated by a varied cast of musical sea creatures.
  • VisionLabzGold – your movements effect a screen of dynamic, glistening, golden fluid.

    • Tanja Vujinovic’s Extagram 2 – part of a series of tactile-sonic objects that recode events into audio-visual noisy data streams
    • David Strang & Vincent Van Uffelen’s Transmission+Interference – uses laser light to transmit audio signals through hacked laser pointers that are received by photocells and amplified through speakers.
    • Stuart Dunbar’s Bad Faith – what at first glance appears to be a solid sculpture shifts it’s position in relation to the speed and distance of the viewer via motion sensors and servos.
    • captincaptin’s Circling Sounds – a single user, 10 speaker immersive sound installation using found and engineered audio recordings.
