In his talk, globally renowned Swiss designer, Felix Pfäffli, will present his creative work, which deals with a wide variety of media. As a graphic designer, his work traverses time, space and interactivity; how the creative process works and how ideas come about in the first place; most importantly, how he can focus specifically on nothing in particular. The talk will be preceded by an introduction by Indian artist, Aparna Rao, about her collaboration with Felix Pfaffli.

Pors & Rao (artists Aparna Rao, India and Søren Pors Denmark) since 2002, work with objects and installations often incorporating physical animation and responsive behaviors. After toiling with computer simulations, the internet, and gameplay in the early 2000s, they both abandoned the screen to work with objects that engage the body. In 2004, they established their studio in Bangalore, India and began a number of institutional collaborations worldwide. In 2020, they founded the Robotics Aesthetics & Usability Center at ETHZ, a 2 year pilot to open all the animatronic tools extracted from their artwork and freely share with Swiss art and design institutions and professionals.
