Bricolage: local and emergent technologies, custom built interfaces and the vanity apocalypse

Nancy Mauro-Flude - Glitchmaker

*Paraphernalia* is a set of self-crafted electronic-performance tools for
a live performance. The project opens a pathway for a larger theme related
to my practice where I ask asks; What are the ways in which we can
engineer interfaces that validate the circulation of subjugated
knowledges, in meaningful sets and settings? We pick up the threads and
traces from this momentous pile of knowledge around us, we are continually
articulating and weaving these threads together in new combinations. This
approach can be found in the notion of bricolage, widely acknowledged and
validated by Claude Levis-Strauss.

Interactive Narrative

fevrier.jpg
Janice Caswell

Call out for the Interactive Narrative Co-lab at this years Electrofringe, see details here

Overview

Interaction designers and media artists often have great ideas for non-linear interactive story-telling frameworks, but they lack the writing skills to produce truly compelling work.

On the other hand, writers have no shortage of skills when it comes to storytelling, but are left a little confused when it comes to the technological expertise required to implement an online or interactive project.

This Co-lab is aimed at bridging that gap by connecting writers and interactive specialists. It will create a platform for discussing and implementing innovative interactive story telling frameworks, and act as a catalyst for the creation of exciting new work. We would like to explore everything from traditional game-play scenarios and multi-faceted video works through to avant-garde non-linear writing techniques with state of the art interaction methodologies.

Workshop

Electrofringe and the National Young Writers’ Festival are presenting an interactive narrative workshop at the 2008 TiNA festival. The session will be held in the Process Space on Friday 3rd October from 4-6pm, and is free and open to all. It will be the first meet up session to kick-start the process. Writers will be teamed up with interactive specialists and form groups for future collaboration. Following the initial workshop, the project will further organise frequent meet-ups in Sydney and Melbourne where collaborators can show their work and exchange ideas.

The project’s online home will be the ABC’s new POOL platform (www.pool.org.au), which will permanently form the goto and exchange place for people to post ideas and work in progress, and discuss projects as they unfold.

Concepts of Software Art // “Poetry on the Web”

picture-8.png
This workshop on software-based art - Poetry on the Web - introduces notions of creating interactive flash animations for online engagement.

We take open source scripts that we find online from online web libraries and we work on them.
The themes of these pieces should be inspired by local signage. This can either be a drawing, a logo, a crest. (for example an old city emblem)
We can evolve these pieces with sounds and then place them on urls.

The workshop will be scheduled like this:

- Introduction to my work with a demo
- Divide people in short groups so they can handle few things at the same time.
- Propose ideas of the local signage.
- Start implementing the idea in Flash.
- Uploading every piece on a URL and a server
- insert it in Facebook as an application

Online exhibition-Tobecontinuedigitalrt


Tobecontinued ( http://www.myspace.com/tobecontinuedigitalart) is a group exhibition in progress that starts with some students of the Fine Arts Academy of Rome. Using Myspace as an interactive platform, Tobecontinued is based on the concepts of open art-work, cause and/vs effect, and free association of ideas; where the last art-work is always inspired to the previous one, in order to generate an open art-work in continuous evolution that never completes itself. The process is constituted by the single works as video, animations, photos, music, net projects, and shows details, nuances and ideas of the whole art-work's project. Let's continue, joining with us and sending your art-work (max. 3 mb per email) at tobecontinued.tobecontinued@gmail.com
