The Drop Shadow Talks

If you are n Berlin don’t miss The Drop Shadow Talks at Berliner Technische Kunsthochschule.
The event is organized by Johannes p Osterhoff. He writes:

“With the current generation of operating systems the drop shadow effect entered the graphical user interface to a new extent. In this context it raises not only windows from background wallpapers; it also stands for a visually enriched interface that strives towards three-dimensionality. Loaded with rich imagery, photorealistic icons and pseudo three-dimensional configurations the graphical user interface yet remains tied to its ?at medium.
Bewildered by this paradox, the graphical user interface leaves the office it was made for and becomes a pop culture phenomenon.”
Jay Botler, the author or “Remediation” and “Windows and Mirrows”, books we study intensively in projects and colloquia, is among the speakers!
