Traditionally materiality has no place in the theory of computation. Only since computing became an indispensable element in all industrial processes and through the advent of new research fields like nanotechnology or synthetic biology the materiality of computation comes into view. Simple examples and materials are used to present some general reflections about the connection between human thinking, computation, and material processes.
The Bauhausinteraction Colloquium is an interdisciplinary colloquium series at the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar, initiated spring 2014, which is to address issues between technology and arts+design and the humanities. This colloquium is organised by different disciplines at the Bauhaus-Universität, across media-informatics (applied computer sciences), media-design, media arts and product + interaction design.
