IDEA 2008: An Interview with Elliott Malkin
by Liz Danzico (9/12/2008)
Subject: Information Organization
Language: English
Abstract: Even if you're trying to find one, the connections among Elliott Malkin's body of work are hard to see. Part family history, part science project, part home-movie, his projects span genres that, initially, seem incidental. Yet many of his web-based projects—whether they investigate "butterfly vision" or install digital graffiti throughout lower Manhattan—are connected in one simple way: they all explore unofficial signals in public space. Taking on the invisible and the imagined, his projects invite viewers to imagine things that operate beyond their perception. His latest project, Graffiti for Butterflies, is even further afield from his typical subjects as it deals with natural science. By directing Monarch butterflies to urban food sources it "is the equivalent of a fast-food sign on a highway, advertising rest stops (waystations) to monarchs traveling through the area." More at

by Vidya Drego (10/1/2010)
Subject: Conferences & Meetings, Experience Design, Social Context
Language: English
Abstract: As digital technologies and consumer behavior continue to evolve, online experiences will undergo a major transformation. Forrester Research has uncovered four key characteristics common to new online experiences: they will be customized by the end user, aggregated at the point of use, relevant to the moment, and social as a rule, not an exception.
