    Philippe Rahm is in Eindhoven as part of an international masterclass developed and hosted by Baltan taking place from October 23-29 as part of its Poeme Numerique research programme dedicated to the exploration of new strategies for integrated, interdisciplinary artistic practices in relation to the spatial experience and presentation of generative and interactive, digital media-based art. Through this practice-based masterclass for a multidisciplinary group of media artists, designers and architects, we aim to examine the importance of and integral approach to audio-visual content, interaction design and generative principles in relation to innovation in architecture and media technology. The masterclass will provide participants the context and opportunity to investigate new strategies for the future and expand their practice in this area through the extensive and diverse experience of 3 international masters: Golan Levin (US), Philippe Rahm (CH/FR) and David Rokeby (CA).
