BIORAMA - Friday July 13th


Dates:
Fri Jul 13, 2007 00:00 - Tue Jul 10, 2007

DIGITAL UNIT RESEARCH presents
BIORAMA

Friday July 13th

Bioarama is a one-day event that illustrates new directions in art, science and technology by bringing together artists who explore notions of life, science and digital realities. By presenting these artists in the context of the DRU Artist in Residence project Biorama will explore a rich territory in which multiple threads of investigation come together to manifest unique interpretations and unfamiliar possibilities.

Biorama serves to contextualise, examine and expand upon the research carried out by Andy Gracie (hostprods) during his residency which weaves together the microbiology of the Pennines around Marsden Moor, traditional and digital networking systems, satellite communications, perceptions of landscape and the history and possible future of interstellar communication.

Biorama will take place in two stages with the Biorama hike in the morning and the Biorama sessions in the afternoon.

Biorama Sessions
_starting at 3.30 pm- 10 pm @ the Bates Mill Studio [new location!!]
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Biorama Sessions will introduce a number of artists whose work explores the natural environment, artificial landscapes and interactions with real or imagined lifeforms. Each session will feature a double presentation with two artists introducing their work and exploring common territories before brief open discussion.

4.00 pm Session 1: Andy Gracie (hostprods)

Biorama Hike
_leaving from the Media Centre, Huddersfield at 9.15 am, returning at 2 pm
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A 5 mile guided walking lecture and environmental study with Andy Gracie and Brandon Ballangee on Marsden Moor lasting around 3 hours. The walk will cover some of the physical territory featured in Andy's research, the moorland area in which he has been walking, meditating and collecting samples. The talk will cover the parallel conceptual territories including the topography of local transmission masts, the history of interstellar communications, the landscape painting tradition and the micro ecology of the moors. Simple scientific field experiments and samplings will be carried out at various points on the way which will provide a window on the methodologies and concepts which Andy has been attempting to weave together throughout the residency. The hike will strive to provide a holistic experience beyond mere exercise and study where we can experience nanometers and light years, the intimate and the expansive, and the networking of ideas.

Each participant will receive the Biorama Hiking kit with which to enhance their experience of the event. Return transport from Huddersfield and soup will be provided. Participants should book in advance as places are limited and should bring sturdy walking footwear, appropriate clothing and sunblock.

Dates:
Sat Jul 14, 2007 00:00 - Fri Jun 15, 2007

When :: July 14 - 15, 2007

Where :: Polytechnic University Brooklyn Campus - Building A
Six Metrotech Center, Brooklyn, NY 11201

WHAT IS DRUPAL CAMP?!?
Modeled in the camp unconference structure, drupalcamp is a no-holds-bars discussion, workshop/code-a-thon involving the open source content management system Drupal. at drupalcamp you ask the questions and the experts provide the answers. at drupalcamp you discover your solutions to your most pressing problems. like previous drupalcamps, there will be a number of break out rooms...
Day 1: After a meet and greet we will split off into 4 rooms (3 if we have a lack of sessions).

* Beginners Room: Several advanced Drupal Ninja's will take shifts in this room covering the basics of Drupal and its various systems.

* Sessions 1: Room available for proposed sessions throughout the day these will cover intermediate concepts of Drupal and Howtos - Please Propose a session - Anyone can teach!

* Sessions 2: Room available for proposed sessions throughout the day these will cover intermediate concepts of Drupal and Howtos - Please Propose a session - Anyone can teach!

* Advanced Room: This is where the ninjas hang out. They might write a module for drupal - or hold a patch marathon, or just get drunk on power and Redbull.

Day 2: We scale things back a little here.

* Sessions 1: Same as yesterday.

* Advanced Room: Macguyver uses Drupal and duct tape to keep the plane from crashing.

* Optional Third Room: Tell us why we should open it up!
