    Extending Interface Practice: An Ecosystem Approach




    Interface ecology is an emerging meta-disciplinary approach in which creation of rich interactive experiences spans many disciplines, including computer graphics, mathematics, gaming, visual art, performance, and cultural theory. Interfaces extend beyond interactive artifacts, activities, and social spaces, forming intricate ecosystems. Interfaces are the catalytic border zones where systems of representation meet, mix, and recombine. Through this recombination, interface ecosystems generate fundamental innovations of form, experience, knowledge, and technology. This panel brings together a diverse range of practitioners who work from concept to experience to interconnect multiple systems within the whole.
