Xlab is SEGD’s premier digital innovation event connecting design, technology, and communication in the built environment.
At Xlab 2013, we’ll focus on how urban spaces are being shaped by digital communications, immersive experience design, and enabling information retrieval in the built environment. As the digital revolution spreads from mobile applications to new digital/physical environments, we'll explore the impact of emerging visual, sensing, and customization technologies on public space.
The lab itself is a one-day event October 24 at the Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria, Queens. A pre-lab networking event will be held the evening of October 23. The museum's ultra-modern interiors and expanded space, designed by Brooklyn-based LEESER Architecture, will set the stage for our conversations
Session 1: Situational Awareness: Understanding and Evolving the Urban Landscape
Session 2: Conversations in the City: Connecting to People and Place
Session 3: Urban Ephemera and Designing an Experience
Session 4: Shifting Practice: Towards Dynamic Experiences
Session 5: The Future
Xlab will be held at The Museum of the Moving Image, a media museum located in Astoria, Queens.
