+ Ferenc Sebő: The war of sexes - An experimental computer game

TWOS is an experimental computer game, being the result of a 3 year long development by Ferenc Sebő and Andor Tóth, with the goal of getting as many of the contemporary holy grails in game development as possible. These include legitimating videogames as an artform, thought-provoking theme, greater emotional involvement, female participation, hardware-independent visuality and compatibility with mobile gear.

+ Ádám Somlai-Fischer: Low-tech sensors and actuators

We have developed a suite of low-tech sensors and actuators using electronic children's toys and gadgets that can be hacked for their constituent parts. In this way, artists and architects can quickly and cheaply develop interactive spaces and objects. The outcome of the project in an instruction manual of sorts, a manifesto for low-tech, a conceptual framework for complex interactive systems.

Low-tech sensors and actuators is a collaboration between Usman Haque (http://www.haque.co.uk) and Ádám Somlai-Fischer (http://www.aether.hu) and was commissioned by the Foundation for Art and Creative Technology (http://www.fact.co.uk). .

+ Ádám Lendvai: Seek yourself!

Ádám Lendvai examines groups organised by attitudes towards diverse subjects in his Seek yourself! project. The online project uses the internet to create a playground with the concepts of anonymous search for others, identity, uniqueness and belonging to the community.
