Interview with David Kousemaker, Laurent Mignonneau and Christa Sommerer, Grégory Lasserre and Anaïs met den Ancxt.
The series “Kiss of Art” is about a romance between art and technology, it is a tale of a human in love with a machine. Each episode attempts to capture the fleeting moment of fascination and genius present in the process of artistic exchange. The contemporary muse breaks free of conventions, her kiss of art does not discern between robot engineers, conceptual animators or graphic designers. Such ephemeral instances of warmth can now be communicated between a machine and a human by means of intuitive interfaces. The impulse of our touch can incite a hybrid plant to sing in response and the digital video technology admits us entry into the world of exciting and dangerous new ecologies. Kiss of Art is a series of contemporary art inspiration and creative brilliance.

David KousemakerDavid Kousemaker works as part of art collective ‘Blandid’ with Tim Olden. Both are interaction designers with overlapping interests when it comes to interface design. Experienced in realizing projects in different areas of the creative digital field, ‘Blendid’ is most interested in designs that allow for digital technology to escape the more traditional interfaces and bridge the gap between the physical and the virtual. “Touch Me” (2004) is an interactive installation which generates images that are created by interacting with a plate of frosted glass.
Laurent Mignonneau and Christa SommererLaurent Mignonneau (born France 1967) and Christa Sommerer (born Austria 1964) are internationally renowned artists who have been collaborating since 1992. Their intuitive interface designs apply scientific principles to explore themes of artificial life through interactive computer installations. They work as researchers and professors and are currently heading the department of Interface Cultures at the University of Art and Design in Linz. Their work has been called "epoch-making" for developing natural and intuitive interfaces and for applying scientific principles such as artificial life, complexity, generative systems and nanotechnologies to their innovative interface design.
Grégory Lasserre and Anaïs met den Ancxt‘Scenocosme’ is the French artist couple Grégory Lasserre (born France 1976) and Anaïs met den Ancxt (born France 1981). Their work uses music and architecture to create interactive artworks in which the spectator is invited to be at the centre of a musical or choreographed collective performance. A hybrid of plants and technology, “Akousmaflore” is an enchanting hanging garden that expresses its sensitivity to gentle human touch or close proximity by singing in response.
