This paper describes the Interactions Gallery, a new initiative at
British HCI (BHCI) that seeks to bring a ‘pop-up’ gallery space to
an academic conference. Submissions were welcomed from
creative practitioners, artists and HCI researchers alike, with the
call for work that provokes open discussion about the conference
themes – on the nature of computers in society and the future of
human-computer interaction (HCI). More specifically, with
Lincoln housing one of only four surviving copies of the Magna
Carta the city has taken a major role in the 2015's 800th
anniversary celebrations. This anniversary has provided a unique
historic backdrop for a conference theming relating to the role
interactive technology plays in the enactment of our civic lives.
Interactive technologies are increasingly mediating citizens’
relationships to their privacy, rights, authority, governance and
each other. It therefore seemed fitting to include work for the
Interactions Gallery that engages with the concerns of social
renewal, activism, democracy, and grassroots innovation.
Submitted work was diverse in approach, including fine art,
performance, interactive media design, demonstrations and
technologically augmented live experiences. The chairs
collectively selected pieces based on their thematic relevance and
the practical staging requirements of the event setting. Work was
documented through the archival publication of abstracts in the
conference proceedings.
