We have been commissioned to create a set of telematic sculptures that will be publicly exhibited as part of the the ISEA festival in San Jose in August 2006. These human scale artworks will exist in a cafe where they will enable remote users to communicate with patrons of the cafe.

This course will explore the design of these telematic sculptures. We will cover topics including facial cognition, non-linguistic speech components, and expressive animation. We will create prototypes of several designs, including the remote interface used to control them, the physical design of the sculpture, and its interactive components.
