Emerson College and New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc./Turbulence.org
announce a new speaker series, "Floating Points 3" [FP3] that will address
the subject of "Ubiquitous Computing" or "Ubicomp", where computing and
wireless capabilities are so integrated into the fabric of everyday life
(clothing, cars, homes, and offices) that the technologies recede into the
background and become indistinguishable from everyday activities. [more at

Mark Goulthorpe: In 1991, architect Mark Goulthorpe established the dECOi
atelier to undertake a series of largely theoretical architectural
competitions. Today, dECOi is an established architectural/design practice
that takes a fresh, exploratory approach to design. Goulthorpe will discuss
his interactive "Aegis Hyposurface" which dynamically mediates events
happening inside and outside of buildings. Goulthorpe currently divides his
time between the School of Architecture and the Media Lab at MIT.

Susan Kozel is a dancer, choreographer, writer and Associate Professor at
the School of Interactive Arts and Technology (SIAT) at Simon Fraser
University in Canada. Kozel has a PhD in Philosophy and is co-founder of
Mesh Performance Practices. Her research combines a broad range of
interactive and responsive systems with performative practices (telematics,
motion capture, sensing, wearables). All of her work is about exploring and
expanding our physical and creative interface with technology. She will
discuss her current project "other stories" which utilizes the Vicon motion
capture system. http://www.meshperformance.org/
Chris Salter is a media artist, director and composer based in Montreal,
Canada and Berlin, Germany. He develops and produces large-scale,
multi-media and interactive environments that merge space, vision and sound.
These environments respond in complex and subtle ways to audience presence
and activities. He is also a professor in the Design and Computation
Department at Concordia University. He will discuss his large scale
installation "Suspension/Threshold." http://www.sponge.org/
