After having traveled to Berlin over spring break, staging a successful exhibition at Schillerpalais project space, “Das Berlin-Projekt” stops at San Francisco Art Institute for a final show. On the roof of the school’s café, digital re-configurations of the works shown in Berlin are presented in the Invisible Gallery.
In March 2017, students of San Francisco Art Institute travel to Berlin to meet with students of Bauhaus University Weimar. Together, they develop an exhibition at the Schillerpalais project space. The exhibition is accompanied by one evening of experimental interactions in the studio of ACUD. After the group returns to San Francisco digital re-configurations of the works shown in Berlin are presented in a show at the Invisible Gallery at SFAI.

The (German-language) thesis is titled “Feedback Machines. Cybernetics and Interaction” and was supervised by Georg Trogemann and Frieder Nake. It deals with cybernetics and human-computer interaction, reconstructing the history of interactivity as the history of cybernetics while using cybernetic thought for understanding interaction. In an argument that incorporates discussions of direct manipulation and tangible interaction, cybernetic and action-centric models of perception, and the enactivism/enaction debate in cognitive science, it ultimately argues that interaction creates interfaces.
