Behind the scenes of large-scale complex interactive media installations: what challenges do we face when we apply cutting-edge technology to the constantly evolving field of technical opportunities? How to deal with the underestimated speed and consequences of technical change. Insights into the rush of designing, implementing, and releasing a language based real-life interaction game. And dreadful discoveries gained from the first user reviews of this barely viable product.
In this talk called "Clash of Realities – Designing Experiments in Code and Technology", Daniel J. Becker will present his non-linear path as a freelance designer that led him to offer his interdisciplinary design experience as a consultant to companies working on digital product innovation.
Daniel J. Becker, KISD alumni 2012, lives and works in Cologne. As a freelance designer, he uses programming for generative design of audioviusal and interactive projects. His spatial works include media facades, television studio designs and semi-permanent light installations.

The KISDtalks are a public lecture series on relevant perspectives of design. They give space for an open-minded and profound analysis and reflection of the manifold issues of design, culture, society, technology, and different scientific disciplines. Topics are interdisciplinary, integrative, and provide internationality by domestic and international speakers.
The talks take place on specified dates, mostly on a Tuesday, at 5:30 pm in the conference room 11 at KISD. The 60-90 minutes-long presentations with “Q&A“ are a public event and free of charge.
