Summary: The built environment is becoming increasingly controlled by technological intelligence, while we, paradoxically enough, are becoming ever more estranged from the whole point of computerization, which now prescribes our everyday reality. In an attempt to narrow this divide, Daan Roosegaarde's remarkable works of art function as a documentation of the dynamic relations between architecture, people and e-culture. His sculptures embody an environment of 'tactile high-tech' in which the visitors andthe space become one. The connection that is established between design and content, between ideology and technology, results in what Roosegaarde calls 'techno-poetry'.This publication presents a complete overview of Roosegaarde's work, which has been shown at the Tate Modern and the Victoria & Albert Museum in London and at the National Museum in Tokyo, as well as in public spaces in The Hague and Rotterdam.

The sensing, processing, and visualizing that are currently in development within the environment boldly change the ways design and maintenance of landscapes are perceived and conceptualised. This is the first book to rationalize interactive architecture and responsive technologies through the lens of contemporary landscape architectural theory. Responsive Landscapes frames a comprehensive view of design projects using responsive technologies and their relationship to landscape and environmental space. Divided into six insightful sections, the book frames the projects through the terms; elucidate, compress, displace, connect, ambient, and modify to present and construct a pragmatic framework in which to approach the integration of responsive technologies into landscape architecture. Complete with international case studies, the book explores the various approaches taken to utilise responsive technologies in current professional practice. This will serve as a reference for professionals, and academics looking to push the boundaries of landscape projects and seek inspiration for their design proposals.

Studying landscape in cinema isn't quite new; it'd be hard to imagine Woody Allen without New York, or the French New Wave without Paris. But the focus on live-action cinema leaves a significant gap in studying animated films. With the almost total pervasiveness of animation today, this collection provides the reader with a greater sense of how the animated landscapes of the present relate to those of the past. Including essays from international perspectives, Animated Landscapes introduces an idea that has seemed, literally, to be in the background of animation studies. The collection provides a timely counterpoint to the dominance of character (be that either animated characters such as Mickey Mouse or real world personalities such as Walt Disney) that exists within animation scholarship (and film studies more generally). Chapters address a wide range of topics including history, case studies in national contexts (including Australia, Japan, China and Latvia), the traversal of animated landscape, the animation of fantastical landscapes, and the animation of interactive landscapes. Animated Landscapes promises to be an invaluable addition to the existing literature, for the most overlooked aspect of animation.

Interactive mobile technologies have now become the core of many—if not all—fields of society. Not only do the younger generation of students expect a mobile working and learning environment, but also the new ideas, technologies and solutions introduced on a nearly daily basis also boost this trend. Discussing and assessing key trends in the mobile field were the primary aims of the 11th International Conference on Interactive Mobile Communication, Technologies and Learning (IMCL2017), which was held in Thessaloniki from 30 November to 01 December 2017. Since being founded in 2006, the conference has been devoted to new approaches in interactive mobile technologies, with a focus on learning. The IMCL conferences have in the meanwhile become a central forum of the exchange of new research results and relevant trends, as well as best practices. This book contains papers in the fields of: Future Trends and Emerging Mobile Technologies Design and Development of Mobile Learning Apps and Content Mobile Games—Gamification and Mobile Learning Adaptive Mobile Environments Augmented Reality and Immersive Applications Tangible, Embedded and Embodied Interaction Interactive Collaborative and Blended Learning Digital Technology in Sports Mobile Health Care and Training Multimedia Learning in Music Education 5G Network Infrastructure Case Studies Real-World Experiences The content will appeal to a broad readership, including policymakers, academics, educators, researchers in pedagogy and learning theory, school teachers, the learning industry, further education lecturers, etc.

Penned by leading historians, the specially-commissioned essays of Whither the Early Republic represent the most stimulating and innovative work being done on imperialism, environmental history, slavery, economic history, politics, and culture in the early Republic. The past fifteen years have seen a dramatic expansion in the scope of scholarship on the history of the early American republic. Whither the Early Republic consists of innovative essays on all aspects of the culture and society of this period, including Indians and empire, the economy and the environment, slavery and culture, and gender and urban life. Penned by leading historians, the essays are arranged thematically to reflect areas of change and growth in the field. Throughout the book, preeminent scholars act as guides for students to their areas of expertise. Contributors include Pulitzer Prize-winner Alan Taylor, Bancroft Prize-winner James Brooks, Christopher Clark, Ted Steinberg, Walter Johnson, Patricia Cline Cohen, David Waldstreicher, and more. These essays, all originally commissioned to appear in a special issue of the Journal of the Early Republic, explore a diverse array of subjects: the struggles for control of North America; the economic culture of the early Republic; the interactions of humans with plants, climate, animals, and germs; the commodification of people; and the complex intersections of politics and culture. Whither the Early Republic offers a wealth of tools for introducing a new generation of historians to the nature of the field and also to the wide array of possibilities that lie in the future for scholars of this fascinating period.
