Stavros Didakis

Last February, scholar Stavros Didakis received the international Catalyst Award, and the prize of £2,000 GBP, for the presentation of his interactive installation in Code Control Festival, which took place at the Leicester Arts Centre, Britain. Principle theme of the event was ways to utilize and create innovative applications with the use of computational and programming media.

Stavros Didakis is a digital arts and technology researcher. He focuses specifically on human-computer interaction (HCI), interface and interaction design, media programming and system development. He has followed studies in sound engineering, music technology, audio systems, sonic arts, and interface & interaction design. His artworks have been exhibited and he has participated in the biennale in Great Britain, China, Egypt and Greece. He has also created numerous experimental and commercial -permanent as well as temporary - interactive installations.

Stavros Didakis is also working on software development for performance applications and devices, and other audiovisual performances – music, video and new media. These applications aim to offer novel suggestions for interface, interaction, automation and digital media management, and also present alternative ways to design, perform and perceive these media works.

In the four-year period, 2009-2012, Stavros Didakis lead the BA in Multimedia course in MBS College (franchise of Nottingham Trent University). At present, he is a PhD candidate in media arts technology in i-DAT (Institute of Digital Arts and Technology) of the University of Plymouth, on a scholarship by the Alexander S.
