[Fwd: THE INTERPRETIVE ENGINE launches in Fresno June 9th]


Drifted into my inbox today... looks very cool.

THE INTERPRETIVE ENGINE FOR VARIOUS PLACES ON EARTH
a site-specific interpretive narrative by Jeff Knowlton, Naomi
Spellman, and Brandon Stow

THE INTERPRETIVE ENGINE will go live in Fresno, California on June 9, 2006.
As part of a series of site-specific projects organized by the Fresno
Metropolitan Museum, this generative narrative relies on Wi-Fi to tell
a story specific to user location. Mapping and astronomy resources,
environmental data, local google, etc., provide a bridge between the
story and the physical location. The negotiation of remote databases
uncovers larger issues of social control and power among
governmental, commercial, and common interests. For information and
to view the project starting June 9, go to http://engine.34n118w.net.

Starting June 9, the story unfolds in three chapters at three
locations in Fresno. The first chapter sited at the SANTA FE DEPOT in
Downtown Fresno will be available through any Internet connection on
this webpage.

The Interdisciplinary Computing and the Arts major in the Music and
Visual Arts Departments draws upon, and aims to bring together, ideas
and paradigms from computer science, art and cultural theory. It takes
for granted that the computer has become a metamedium and that artists
working with computers are expected to combine different media forms in
their works. All of this makes the program unique among currently
existing computer art or design programs which, on the one hand, usually
focus on the use of computers for a particular media (for instance,
specializing in computer animation, or computer music, or computer
design for print) and, on the other hand, do not enter into a serious
dialog with current research in computer science, only teaching the
students "off-the-shelf" software. The goals of the program are to
prepare the next generation of artists who will be functioning in a
computer-mediated culture; to give students necessary technical,
theoretical and historical backgrounds so they can contribute to the
development of new aesthetics for computer media; to prepare students to
mediate between the worlds of computer science and technology, the arts,
and the culture at large by being equally proficient with computing and
cultural concepts; and to give students sufficient understanding of the
trajectories of development in computing so they can anticipate and work
with the emerging trends, rather than being locked in particular
software currently available on the market.

Thursday, June 8, 2006, ATKINSON HALL, Black Box, 2-4pm, UCSD

CRCA (crca.ucsd.edu) is pleased to host, in collaboration with the
Visual Arts and Music Departments, ICAM.timecode. Please join us to view
the best time-based undergraduate work done at UCSD this year.
Presentations will include time-based media, music compositions and videos.

The Interdisciplinary Computing and the Arts (ICAM) major in the Music
and Visual Arts Department draws upon, and aims to bring together, ideas
and paradigms from computer science, art and culutral theory. The goals
of the program are to prepare the next generation of artists who will be
functioning in a computer-mediated culture; to give students necessary
technical, theoretical and historical backgrounds so they can contribute
to the development of new aesthetics for computer media, and to prepare
students to mediate between the worlds of computer science and
technology, the arts, and the culture at large by being equally
proficient with computing and cultural concepts.
