Infinite Nows is showcasing student projects of the Interaction Design department (IAD) at the Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK). Probing alternative presents through investigative, speculative and experimental practices, Infinite Nows‘ projects reflect the values and approaches of IAD that have been shaped over its 20-year existence. Interaction design is, above, all about the relationality and entanglement of human and non-human actions. Infinite Nows proposes a variety of ways of taking action that allow us the space to be with and learn from the other. The exhibition looks at a range of topics including cross-species interaction, self-perception in deepfakes, inclusive voting systems, antisocial media platforms and other interactive technologies that produce moments of sharing, presence and care.
