CALL FOR PARTICIPATION,
Get involved at MODE!

Our Theme: Motion Design is about action, energy, light, and movement intertwined with message and meaning. It includes the push and pull of forces, whether they are recorded with a video camera or objects created on the screen with complex software. Gravity, speed, and velocity, simulate elements in an interplay of movement. Interfaces, interactive systems, narratives and messaging all incorporate exchanges of dynamic and well-planned interplay.

Motion Design is a shifting and evolving sphere—it encompasses a broad range of related fields: human-computer interaction, design, journalism, film, television, dance, and theater. Our central theme for 2019 is (inter)play, the way in which two or more things have an effect on each other.

 

There are many ways to still participate in MODE 2019! Whether you want to present your research, share a dynamic and engaging workshop or compete in a motion design festival, there are many ways to still present at MODE 2019.
