dorkbot Chicago && a Kickstarter


http://bit.ly/bTLZKB

Dorkbot Chicago needs a video projector!

In our experience organizing Dorkbot Chicago, we've found that the one piece of equipment we almost invariably need for every workshop, lecture or artist talk is a video projector. We've been borrowing+begging projectors every month from different sources, but it would save us a lot of trouble to have a dedicated Dorkbot Chicago video projector.

We're looking at projectors in the neighborhood of $350.

About Dorkbot:
The idea of the international dorkbot network is "people doing strange things with electricity" and meeting in informal, friendly environments to discuss their projects. These projects could include hardware hacks, New Media Art projects, creative code, circuit bent musical instruments or wild DIY garage science

Dorkbot Chicago meets on the last Thursday of every month at Enemy.

LEONARDO SCHOLARSHIP FOR MediaArtHistories MA awarded to Fran ILICH


LEONARDO SCHOLARSHIP FOR MediaArtHistories MA awarded to Fran ILICH

From a field of applicants from twelve countries from four continents, Mexican media artist, author, and researcher Fran Ilich Morales Muñozhas been awarded the first Leonardo Scholarship in the Media.Art.Histories MA program at the Department of Image Science at Danube University, Austria. The jury, consisting of Edward Shanken, jonCates and Oliver Grau selected Ilich from a highly competitive group of candidates based on his extraordinary accomplishments, intellectual sophistication, independent vision, and entrepreneurial spirit.
Ilich is Director of the Literature Department at the Centro Cultural de Tijuana, Founding Director of Possible worlds.org and Founding CEO of Spacebank. He was Co-founder and Moderator Nettime-Latino and has contributed essays to Wired News, Modem.txt, and Al Fin. His videogame artwork, "Banner" (with Blas Valdez) was exhibited at 01 San Jose (2009) and ARCO XX, Madrid (2001). His Internet soap opera, "Fea y Rebelde" was exhibited at Documenta 12, Kassel (2007). He was General Director and Curator of the Borderhack! festivals in 2001, 2002, and 2005.

=> LEONARDO SCHOLARSHIP FOR MEDIA ART HISTORIES
The scholarship is planned to answer the critical challenges of the 21st century, which require mobilization and cross-fertilization among the domains of art, science and technology by supporting the studies of a new researcher or artist.

=> FIRST INTERNATIONAL MASTER OF MEDIA.ART.HISTORIES
(low-residency; English language, international faculty) The postgraduate program MediaArtHistories conveys the most important developments of contemporary art through a network of renowned international theorists, artists and curators like: Erkki HUHTAMO, Lev MANOVICH, Christiane PAUL, Paul SERMON, Edward SHANKEN, Jens HAUSER,Sean CUBITT, Christa SOMMERER, Gerfried STOCKER, Knowbotic Research, Frieder NAKE, Oliver GRAU and many others.

Artists and programmers give new insights into the latest software, interface developments and their interdisciplinary and intercultural praxis. Keywords are: Strategies of Interaction & Interface Design, Social Software, Immersion & Emotion and Artistic Invention. Using online databases and other modern aids, knowledge of computer animation, netart, interactive, telematic and genetic art as well as the most recent reflections on nano art, augmented reality and wearables are introduced. Historical derivations that go far back into art and mediahistory are tied in intriguing ways to digital art. Important approaches and methods from Image Science, Media Archaeology and the History of Science & Technology will be discussed.

They gain key qualifications for the contemporary art and media marketplace. The Center in Monastery Goettweig, where most MediaArtHistories courses take place, is housed in a 14th century building, remodeled to fit the needs of modern research in singular surroundings.
