Dear artists, designers, engineers, technicians and technologists,
You are invited, in person or via audio/video/text conference, to a
roundtable discussion of artistic and technological communities hosted
by the Integrated Digital Media Institute of Polytechnic University.
## Topics will include:
- Interactivity in digital media art
- Communities of digital media artists
- Tool development in artistic and technological communities
As it's an example familiar to many, we will use the Share community
(http://share.dj) as a starting point for discussion, which should
last about 3 hours. Bring energy bars/drinks if you fear you might
## you will be observed...
This roundtable idea was set into motion by Michael Liegl, a
sociologist from Ludwig-Maximilian UniversitÃ¤t, Germany, who has been
studying the experimental music and VJ scene for quite some time now.
Michael will present slides and video footage from Share to get us
If you'd like to participate remotely, please contact
email@example.com to work out the technical details. For more on
the topics we will discuss (and to add your own suggestions to the
mix), consult the wiki at http://share.dj/wikis/roundtable/ .
Sat. September 17th, 2 pm
at the IDMI Lab
6 Metro Tech Center
///apologies for any cross posting///
I would like to introduce myself to the list. I'm Marco Mancuso, new media
art journalist, curator and critic. I live and work in Milan, Italy and I
would like to introduce you the cultural and editorial project DIGICULT
(http://www.digicult.it) that I founded at the beginning of 2005. It's the
first Italian web portal about electronic arts and digital culture and it's
deep involved in the pubblication of the first monthly e-magazine called
DIGIMAG (http://www.digicult.it/digimag) speaking about: netart, hacktivism,
software art, video art, electronica, audiovideo, artificial intelligence,
new media, performing art, interaction design. DIGICULT is also the first=
network of almost 30 people and 10 huge italian communities and projects
collaborating to the magazine and the portal at large; some the best italian
journalists, curators, critics and professionists of the growing and
spreading new media culture in Italy. We would like to be the first
cultural-editorial activist network project in Italy, completely
indipendent, no dipending from any owner, writing and speaking and
discussing and reflecting freely about everything we consider important
today in the world of electronic culture and arts. From September you can
browse DIGICULT also in english at http://www.digicult.it/index_eng.htm

Beneath our feet and above our heads, sidewalks, lawns, plazas, blocks, gardens, buildings, streets, and curbs surround and bound the spaces in which we move and live.

This is what you get when you add:
40 or so severely fatigued freshmen game design students
+ a cruel instructor ready to indulge in his student's childhood dreams (which in this case, are sponsored by the Disney Corporation).
+ a staged classroom battle and eventual consensus over candidates for 'remake' (close competitors included Terminator 2, Harry Potter & LOTR).
+ each student given two 15 second segments of LK to remake.
