The vision of MOCO’16 is to bring together academics, researchers, engineers, designers, technologists, technocrats, creative artists, anthropologists, museologists, ergonomists and other practitioners interested in the phenomenon of the symbiosis between the human and the creative process, e.g. dancer-digital medias, musician-instrument, craftsman-object etc. This symbiosis takes the form of an interactional and gravitational relationship, where the human element is both a trigger and a transmitter, connecting perception (mind/environment interaction and cognition), knowledge (theoretical understanding of a process) and gesture (semantic motor skills).
MOCO’16 invites researchers that have experiences of capturing the combined key elements of perception, knowledge and gesture/movement. MOCO’16 will be of interest to artists who work on the elucidation of the intersection between art, meaning cognition and technology by unlocking the hidden components in human creativity. The workshop also provides a forum for industrial partners, for whom the movement and gestures of the workers/operators consist of key elements in terms of ergonomics and health, to see and present state-of-the-art technologies.
A key feature of the MOCO’16 Workshop will be to open some of its demonstrations and artistic activities to the public-at-large in order to provide this extended audience with the opportunity to be informed about current scientific issues and topics by experts in an informal setting.
