The intention of this project is to map and discuss some productions in the field of interfaces and their applicability to interactivity with digital videos. The study will focus on field research and exchange programs with the Luz Research Laboratory Groups at the College of Beaux Arts, Valencia Polytechnic University, UPV, Spain and which include the participation of several researchers, teachers and artists. Interlocution at UPV will be mediated by Prof. Emilio Martínez. Over the past 2 years, I have conducted the post-PhD project for Maurício Taveira "Interface and interactivity in high resolution digital videos" (Capes PNPD) which aim at the production and post-production of an interactive video, as well as reflection about its interaction interfaces. The work has been elaborated within the scope of the Digital Poetic Group, CAP/ECA-USP under my coordination. In this first semester of 2012, see the credits and work process in the body of the project and annexes, recordings of the interactive video "Arthur 2.0" were made. The idea of the video is an interactive work with the physical_transparent interface system that gathers programs and devices that can integrate possible navigation paths by a user based on agency between the interacting agent and fiction on a TV screen or digital projector. At the current moment of the process and the reason for the post-doctoral internship requested at UPV is the discussion and realization of the interaction interface for "Arthur 2.0". This part of the process shall be carried out in partnership by me and by Maurício Taveira, and it is presented in two phases: Phase I - the first form of interaction - would occur with physical_virtual interfaces, like iPhone, tablets and phase II - the second form of interaction - would occur with the interface we call the physical_transparent interface based on Eyesweb or Isadora programs or similar that best adjust to the project.
