How to create meaningful interactions through technology

Jake Barton presents four projects completed by the media design firm he founded, Local Projects, which creates installations for museums, brands and public spaces using a broad array of technological platforms.

In his presentation at Design Indaba Conference 2014, Barton starts off by questioning the design profession’s relationship with technology as a medium and the ways in which tools influence what is made.

He reflects on the reciprocal relationship between maker and medium when it comes to more typical forms of art such as painting, and how there is a level of intuition that comes out of the creative process itself.
