Hollywood, Interaction Design and the Silver Screen
Session Type: Presentation
From the earliest days of Hollywood, filmmakers and audiences have been fascinated by technological tales. Directors’ visions of the future range from fanciful devices to futuristic interfaces.
This session examines the portrayal of interaction design, interfaces and architectures as seen by Hollywood. Movies like 2001: A Space Odyssey and Minority Report, and television shows like Star Trek have inspired and amused audiences for generations. As practitioners who deal with complex information and interactions on a daily basis, we design the future.
We can learn both from elegant depictions and catastrophic abominations of interaction design as envisioned by those who transport us into realities other than our own.
Attendees will learn how interactions, interfaces and experiences have been viewed by Hollywood directors over time and gain inspiration from some of the most creative minds in the world.
This session is recommended for anyone who enjoys movies and looks for inspiration in other fields. Popcorn is optional.
