Ida Toft

Ida Toft is an artist and PhD candidate at Concordia University working on the intersections of digital games and media art.  Ida’s current research investigates machine touch and vibration patterns as the primary modality for choreographing social gatherings into game-like situations. While consumers of mainstream game culture have developed refined literacies in screen-based media, it seems that the modality of vibration is less coded with meanings. Being involved with the Copenhagen Game Collective, Ida has been involved with experimental game communities across Europe since 2007. Here they especially explored digital games that make little use of screens.
