These are the emerging technologies that transform social and economic life. Often the technologies are quickly assimilated by the market or intentionally deployed in a non-productive manner; they are not necessarily a force for the good. However, they can also emerge in a more positive light, and then bring with them a set of questions. How as anartist or designer can one influence the effect of these technologies? How doescreative thinking allow one to speculate on what the next series of disruptive technologies might be? How do the emerging technologies inflect productively onlearning and teaching?

We are pleased to have been invited to deliver a workshop for Restless Futures event during London Design Festival 2014. Under the theme Disruptive Technologies, the design team will introduce participants to the aestheicodes technology, teach them how to design their own art codes, introduce them to the brand new app, especially how to reconfigure it to their own specification and explore future potentials for our human vision of computer human interaction.

Workshop: 13TH Sept, 2-5PM, Central Saint Martins

We have Collaborated with Tent London to bring you a glimpse of the future, where interactive devices such as smart phones and tablets are triggered by beautiful sophisticated images or patterns that adorn our homes, our clothes and our objects. A future enhanced by Beautiful interactions.

Tent London is the first event world wide to implement the artcode as a unique creative interaction experience for the visitors to the event. The aestheticodes design team have created a series of interactive artcodes across the event that can be scanned with an Aestheticode/Tent app.

The artcode is a paradigm shift in visual recognition technology. It has all of the properties of a QR code but with an in built aesthetic quality. Easy to draw, playful and poetic, the artcode puts the human back into Computer Human Interaction. Download the free Aestheticodes app, from the play and app stores, to unlock the hidden interactive dimensions to Tent London 2014.

Visit the Aestheticodes stand J06 at Tent London to experience the artcode first hand. The Aestheticode design team will be demonstrating the technology, teaching visitors to draw their own codes and offering in depth artcode workshops in illustration, papercutting, screen printing and more.
