Emily and Theo of Design I/O will talk about designing interactive installations that support open play, where visitors are given the tools and space to integrate their own imagination and creativity into the experience and make it something wholly their own. Emily and Theo will present several new installations, all united by a strong focus on this concept of open play. Diving deep into the technical and conceptual challenges that were faced, they will talk about their trial-and-error early experiments and often meandering process they take from initial concept to final installation.
