But much work remains when it comes to designing visual and immersive communication using contemporary technology. We explore immersive and augmented information spaces, and multimodal interaction between humans and AI, always focusing on the use experience.

Current printing technology enables printing in 2.5D and 3D by mixing materials with different optical properties. Faithfully reproducing not only color but also realistic texture, gloss and opacity requires even more complicated models taking into account the optical properties of the materials. This field, often called appearance printing, is central to our research.
