Exploring HCI's Relationship with Liveness (CHI'12 Workshop)

Lookup NU author(s): Dr Jonathan Hook, Dr Guy Schofield, Dr Robyn Taylor, Dr Tom Bartindale, Dr John McCarthy, Emeritus Professor Pete Wright



Liveness has long been a valued quality of mass media presentation in areas such as music, sports and debate. The rapid development of new digital media, and the interpenetration of these media and staged performance, places liveness center stage in attempts to understand emerging human-computer configurations. This workshop will bring together insights from a variety of disciplines and perspectives to explore how HCI can benefit from critical engagement with theoretical and practical treatment of liveness. To seed discussion and action, participants will engage reflectively with the liveness of an authentic performance, experienced firsthand and at one-remove through a mediating technology, using an innovative video-based methodology.
