The Error Network
Dance and Human-Computer Interface
14 September 2016 - 16 September 2016

The Error Network’s central theme is how dance and the design field of human-computer interaction (HCI) can inform and interrogate each other through engaging with the generative possibilities of error.

With a particular emphasis on somatic practices and movement improvisation, error will be mapped into ambiguity and the research potential for ambiguity will be explored.

This network is supported by the British “Arts and Humanities Research Council”. It links researchers and artists across multiple disciplinary areas (including visual art, medicine and robotics) in the UK and Sweden. The researchers and the artists all have significant profiles in academia and the professional art world.


This 3 day Network event will be structured around two intersecting topics:

  1. Bodily improvisation in several responsive technological systems (such as motion capture, encryption technologies)
  1. The evaluation of potential interdisciplinary knowledge produced as error becomes opened out to ambiguity, with the resulting question: Can ambiguity be a generative force for exploration in the arts and sciences?
