The Experimental computer science at the KHM asks for the basic requirements and possibilities of today's design and manufacturing.
In particular, the role of information processes and their interaction will be investigated with material processes. Where do they occur at all information and algorithms, as they are produced, communicated, processed and integrated into planning and manufacturing processes? How does human reason and perception with physical materials and how they are mediated by semiotic processes?
In short, the way in which they are mutually dependent reason and artifact and what role do the characters? The fact that so far no general science of artifacts exist, the so the "know-how" that go beyond mere questions of making, is regarded as one of the main reasons that our company has never really mastered the art intellectually. Not the technical "know-how" is therefore at the center of our thinking and experimental approach, but reflect on the conditions of the possibility producing action and the question under what stipulations we want to develop our resulting technologies at all and operate?
Access to this complex issue is basically experimentally. With the help of artifacts, small structures and process-oriented installations field Poietischer actions is artistic and practically investigated and critically.
