BIO
Former gallery-owner, the last ten years working as a freelance curator, artpromoter and multimedia designer-artist in the field of netart. The During the years I had an contemporary art gallery my interest moved gradually from paintings to installations and conceptual art.

Then in 1994 the computer entered my life.

The contradiction between limitation on the one hand, unlimited freedom and no physical borders on the other hand, created new impulses and insights to explore the possibilities of the medium. My fascination for this platform was born.

I have travelled a long way obtaining the necessary technical skills,studying and experiecing the do's and the don;ts, preparing and presenting concepts of visual artists for the web. It has now become the art form for myself to express and to tell my story.

The images, the words, the colours, the sounds, the motions, they're all ready there. It is like a palet with paint, a keyboard characters,covered with jpg., gif, wave, MP3,mov., doc. and other files. They're at my disposition and I will put them in a new, different context. They form the remains of my travels trough my mind, the virtual world, the real world and life.

Marjan van Mourik (1958) studied art-history and multimedia.

99Rooms by Kim Koester, Richard Schumann, Johannes Buenemann, Stephan Schulz


99Rooms is a unique internet art project that interweaves wall painting, photography, animation and sound in a manner entirely unknown until now. Shortly after its launch in June 2004, more than two million individuals throughout the world have already visited this interdisciplinary composite work of art.

99rooms stemmed from the mystical, often apolocalyptically charming pictures created by Berlin artist Kim Koester within the countless vacated premises of East Berlins industrial sector. Photos of these paintings were initially produced in digital form and then animated through a cooperative effort between Richard Schumann & Stephan Schulz and then subsequently complemented through a personal sounddesign from Johannes Buenemann. The final product of this year long effort is a scintillating intermediary world which invites the observer into an journey through its morbidly-beautiful rooms.

DARKLIGHT FESTIVAL in association with ARTS COUNCIL?S CRITICAL VOICES 3 presents


SATURDAY 24th JUNE:::2.30pm:::IFI:::TICKETS FREE FROM IFI BOX OFFICE.

In association with the Arts Council?s Critical Voices programme 2006 Darklight are delighted to host a public interview with John Thomson, Electronic Arts Intermix, New York conducted by artist John Gerrard.

Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI) is one of the world's leading non-profit resources for video art and interactive media. John Thomson has been active in media arts on an international level since the 1980s and has been Director of Distribution at EAI since 2000. He is also a co-director and founder of Foxy Production, a leading contemporary art gallery in New York. He has been active in media arts on an international level since the 1980s. Before moving to New York in 2000, he researched media art digitization and distribution for the Lux Centre, London. In 1998 he was Coordinator of Pandaemonium Festival, London, and in 1997 he co-curated the Lux's inaugural moving image exhibition program. He has curated media art programs and exhibitions for the Pacific Film Archive, Berkeley; the Staatsgalerie, Stuttgart; Tate Britain, London; The Institute of Contemporary Art, London; Exit Art, New York; and Smack Mellon, Brooklyn, among other venues. He has lectured in media arts at the London Institute, and the School of Visual Arts, New York. He has written for ?Mesh?, Melbourne; ?Art in Culture?, Seoul; and has written on media art preservation in ?Art Between Zero and One: A Manual of Digital Art?, Christoph Kehl and Beat Raeber, eds., Basel, 2006.

During this interview he will discuss issues surrounding distribution and selling of moving image work as well as issues on archiving video, art an animation originating on computers. We hope this discussion will trigger some of the topics up for debate at the Darklight Symposium 2007.

John Gerrard is one of Irelands most exciting young artists, amongst other things his work is concerned with real time passing and deals with issues of sustainability, longevity and durability both thematically and practically.

EVENT DETAILS:
IFI - Irish Film Institute, Eustace Street, Temple Bar, Dublin 2. Tel: 01-6793477
2.30pm : Public interview John Thomson & John Gerrard
3.30pm : Screening of EAI?s catalogue & archive.
Tickets are FREE of charge but must be obtained from IFI box office.

Interview is followed by a screening of a selection of work from EAI?s catalogue and archive.
Video Variations: Artists' Experiments with the Video Image
Artists working with video have often manipulated images they have shot or found to produce new contexts, meanings, and effects. The works in this
programme re-present original materials in ways that enthral, disturb, and entertain. They undermine our expectations of the behaviour of moving
images, placing in relief the elements of contemporary film and TV that we take for granted: character, narrative, figure, scene, and tempo. Spanning
four decades, this collection includes work from Steina and Woody Vasulka, Dara Birnbaum, Peggy Ahwesh and Shana Moulton.

Few more places available for Masters Programme in Creative Games.


Deadline:
Tue Jun 13, 2006 02:45

Games as Tools for Architects, Urban Planners, Artists, Musicians, ...
When the evangelists and the inventors of the notion of "Serious Games"
added "battlefield simulation" to health, heritage and art issues, we
thought it would be a good moment to replace the term

"serious" with "creative".

There is a Masters programme at Salford University in Manchester, which
offers an "MSc in Creative Games".

http://creativetechnology.salford.ac.uk/games/

The philosophy of this programme in Creative Games is expressed through the following features:

* To integrate the fields of research of Creative Technology, Heritage
Studies, Digital Art, Interactive Media and to create a new discipline based on the application area of serious content driven games and the
possibilities of game engines for the Cultural and Creative Industries.

* To equip graduates with both the theoretical expertise and the practical skills to enter, and make an effective contribution to the growing area of Creative Games.

* Gaining specific skills in a number of areas including creative thinking, research methods, computer systems, visualization, multi-media, interactivity, and telematics.

* Developing the ability to think dynamically and creatively.

* Gaining the expertise to focus on a specific avenue of interest, carry out enquiries and experiment, and produce pioneering projects or realize
innovative working prototypes and solutions.
