Robotic Self-Organisation and Synchrony
Derstrudel founder Christian Faubel is sharing some of his unique works on his visit to Taiwan. He will be conducting a lecture to share his experience and works accumulating his observation on the seemingly fragmented and humorous mechanical parts and scientific creation in discovering artistic and amazing sense of space. His works often make use of projectors that rematerialize objects in the forms of light and shadow, taking viewers into a small imaginary world.

克里斯汀·法貝爾 Christian Faubel
Christian Faubel is an in(ter)disciplinary scholar working between the fields of autonomous systems research, neuroscience, media art and design. He is currently working at the Academy of Media Arts Cologne. He holds a PhD in electrical engineering. In 2002 he founded derstrudel as a framework for the mediation of a relaxed approach to electronics. 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 from the dynamics of interaction between such units. He creates artifacts, workshops and performances using a playful and experimental approach to technology. In his artworks, performances and workshops he tries to convey insights about theoretical concepts from psychology, neuroscience and robotics such as emergence or embodiment along an aesthetic dimension. He considers his works to be in the tradition of philosophical toys as they combine the mediation of scientific concepts with pleasure and amusement.
Fertile Ground of Smart City: A Serendipity when Digital Art Meets Human Society
如何串連起一座城市？有眾多媒介 —— 從貨幣、資本、文化符碼、建築量體到資料與資訊流—— 以往它們各自在結構上交錯對接，如今伴隨著資訊科技，構築成了一片美麗動人的數位新地景。政府資料的開放，民眾的多元參與，文化的形塑與演進與藝術的反思，揉和出一個孕育對話與反抗、獲利與生存的土壤與培養皿。
How do we ensure a city gets connected? There is all kinds of media – currency, capital, cultural pictograms, building massing, to information and information flows – used to be separate elements that ran parallel to each other. Now with help of information technology, the elements are brought together to form a magnificent digital landscape. Government transparency and civil engagement, together with cultural influence and evolution, and artistic reflections, have turned our homeland into a Petri dish for dialogue, disobedience, profit and survival all blended into one.
