Christian Faubel is an in(ter)disciplinary scholar working between the
fields of autonomous systems research, neuroscience, media art, and
design. In his work, he is interested in what enables autonomous behavior
and how complex autonomous behavior may result from the interaction of
very simple units and their co- and interrelations.
Christian Faubel considers his artworks, workshops, and performances to be in the tradition of philosophical toys as they combine the mediation of scientific concepts with pleasure and amusement.
In his talk, he will, among others, present the rhythm apparatus for the overhead projector, an artifact that produces self-organized rhythms and that showcases embodiment and emergent behavior.
The KISDtalks are a public lecture series on relevant perspectives of design. They give open space for an open-minded and profound analysis of current and future issues of design, culture, society, technology, and different scientific disciplines. Topics are interdisciplinary, integrative, and provide internationality by domestic and international speakers.
The KISDtalks always take place on Tuesday at 5.30 pm. The 60-90 minutes-long presentations with “Q&A“ are a public event and free of charge. The lecture will be held in English language.
