The Discomfort Zone: From Interfaces to Installations

A presentation at CanUX in in Ottawa, ON, Canada by Nuff

In 2017, after a decade working as a designer, Nuff and a friend were invited to make an interactive light sculpture. Completely out of their depth, they relied on their existing skills, learning new ones on the job.

Focusing on this experience, Nuff will share how physical installation projects have made him a better digital designer, how design skills make for great art, and why he believes the best work happens outside comfort zones.
