Interaction Design Lab, a startup created from the Interaction Design Institute at Ivrea, is conducting an interesting research on participatory design of art installation. Their approach is “to go on the field” and ask people how the art installation should look like:
In the beginning of July 2006 we have installed our work base in Cagliari. From this privileged observatory we will develop our project for the Mediterranean Museum of Nuragic and Contemporary Art architectural competition.
Now we start off by launching a first base camp: for two whole months, July and August, a hangar in the port of Cagliari is the place we start from to discover and learn about Sardinia. It is a place for work, fun, exchange and research. We want to take advantage of this fantastic site to meet people and listen to their experiences, ideas and suggestions. We look forward to invite you inside our landscape to show you the conceptual frame of our project. This Wednesday 2 July at 19:00, we will present our explorations of Cagliari going from our base camp to the Lazzaretto peninsula – to the airport – along the Salina –then through Cagliari downtown and onwards to Pirri.
We will take you to a media landscape and we will explore together your city.
