BIO
Ana Carvalho is a visual artist born in Porto, Portugal and living at the moment in Falmouth, UK.
Major themes in the work of Ana Carvalho are emotional celebrations in daily life, women's achievements, fictional biography and ways of knowing. Experiencing different cultures and languages is a way of living.
She develops work that describes processes of interaction with other people while telling stories that are nor entirely fiction or reality.
The work is presented as live visual performance, installation/videos and on the Internet. By using images and colors she explores multiplicities in herself, gender and relationships.
She is one of four members of Art in Hidden Places of Falmouth. Through art events, the group attempts to create a network for artists to communicate, collaborate and create works in public spaces.
Ana Carvalho is currently researcher at iRes Research cluster in Interactive Art & Design and lecturer at University College of Falmouth.

VJTheory Book
Philosophy and cultural theory of vjing and realtime interaction

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Editors: Ana Carvalho and Brendan Byrne
Narrative editors: Lara Houston and Paul Mumford

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Keywords; narrative, philosophy, psychoanalysis, cultural theory, ephemeral, performance, technology, aesthetics, politics, ethics, realtime processing, collaboration, integrating media.

During AVIT UK 05 there was a fantastic level of debate based on both the theory and practice of VJing and realtime interactive installations and the questions those practices raise.

Paul and Lara have been organizing Narrative Lab, a program of lectures, screenings, performances and projects as a major strand since of AVITUK since 2003. The group has been seeking to encourage debate, spark new work arising from theory and facilitate collaboration examining the territories of narrative. Over the last two years the narrative Lab has hosted lectures on hypertextuality, meta narratives, psychogeography, screen aesthetics, structuralism, process methodologies and various production techniques.

These theoretical debates have now expanded across many of the other sessions. What became apparent was the lack of written texts which attempt to deal with these questions which involves everybody's practice.
With this in mind we propose to gather a collection of articles and essays which begins to deal with these new media debates.

We see this volume as paralleling the early anthologies of film criticism, such as 'Movies and Methods' by Bill Nichols, containing a broad range of analytical perspectives relating to the new medium.

This is an invitation to submit a short synopsis, propose an article or ideas to be published as a book.

DISCUSSION

Re: Re: VJTheory book - Call for participation


What we are asking from all contributors at the moment is a 500 word synopsis of the proposed article. The deadline for the synopsis is the 30th of September. As a collective or individually (depending on how you would like to collaborate) you could give us a rough idea of the area of theory you would be using.

A proposal from you would be very welcome.

I am not sure though if this answered your questions or not. if you need any further information please let me know, I'll be more than happy to continue this conversation.

For contact through e-mail: vjtheory@yahoo.co.uk

Best regards
Ana
