On April 26 and 27, the Faculty of Art, Design and Architecture will hold the first event of its “Interaction Design Futures” initiative. The event, titled “Unfolding,” will include three talks and two workshops.

FADA invites everyone to join them in what they envision as an exploration. All sessions are free of charge; students taking GE 250/251 will receive 25 points for attending the talks. As the workshops have limited capacity, registration is required; this may be done by sending an email, with a subject line that includes the workshop name and code (W1 or W2) as well as the name of the registrant’s department, to unfolding@bilkent.edu.tr by 12 midnight on Wednesday, April 24. Participants will need to bring their laptops.

The talks will take place on Friday between 4 and 7 p.m. Asst. Prof. Andreas Treske, chair of the Department of Communication and Design, will give a presentation titled “Let’s Dance”; Efe Korkut Kurt of the Alan Project will speak on the topic “Relational Aesthetics and Spatial Experience”; and Efe Alpay of Reo-Tek will talk about “Designing Immersive Storytelling Experiences.”

The workshops will run concurrently in adjoining studios from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday. Workshop one (W1), on “Creating Interactive & Generative Realtime Visualizations With Derivative TouchDesigner” will be presented by freelance graphic designer Ali Bozkurt and take place in FA-314.
