Josh Nimoy: Icon==Function

4 October 2005
The Box
18:00 - 20:30 FREE (pre-booking required)


The HCI (Human Computer Interaction) project is a collaboration between 
FACT and the School of Computing and Mathematical Sciences at Liverpool 
John Moore’s University that seeks to explore issues of computer 
usability. Artists Josh Nimoy (US), Simon Poulter (UK) and Caen Botto 
(Argentina) have been commissioned to propose experiments, based on 
scientific principles of human-computer interaction, that analyze how a 
variety of different users, from different backgrounds and levels of 
technological training, interact with ‘the machine’.

Josh Nimoy will be presenting Icon==Function, a series of interactive 
game-like audio-visual environments that analyzes the relationship 
between the functionality of user interfaces, and their iconographic 
facades. The body of work attempts to eliminate the divide between the 
outer and inner parts of “the machine.”

Caen Botto and Simon Poulter will also be present to inform us about 
their projects up to date.


Made possible by a Partnerships for Public Awareness grant from the 
Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council
