The cross-over between the digital and the physical is being increasingly addressed in
design disciplines, architecture, arts and urban studies. Artists and designers increasingly
make use of hard data to interpret the world and/or create meaningful and sensuous
environments or design objects. Architects attempt to measure neurophysiological data
to understand better the human experience in spaces. Designers script parametric
processes to translate data into responsive, meaningful and/or aesthetically intriguing
installations. Scientists and architects/ artists/ designers collaborate to visualise data in
new and creative ways so as to trigger and reveal further connections, interpretations and
Practices such as the above attempt to break down the dichotomy between data and the
sensuous (or else the digital and the physical). They translate elusive, ephemeral and
intangible aspects of a place into solid data. In other instances the solid data are
interpreted and represented in a way so as to be perceived by the different senses and/or
experienced in a different manner.
In this context, methods and conceptual frameworks of different disciplines need to
engage in a dialogue; and through these cross-disciplinary practices, new strategies and
processes emerge.
This publication aims to present collaborative projects, where methods from more than
one discipline are involved. This publication also addresses how collaborators from
different disciplines can work together to deal with current design and social issues.
