Holiday! a relaxed augmented reality workshop


Dates:
Fri Apr 01, 2011 06:00 - Sun Apr 03, 2011

Location:
Carrara, Italy

Vacanza! (Holiday!)
please join us at AHAktitude 2011 in Carrara, in April 01-02-03, 2011
AOS will present:
Vacanza! a really relaxed Augmented Reality workshop
at AOS (and in the other initiatives such as REFF and FakePress) we’ve been proclaiming the rise of a new (or old?) idea of Augmented Reality, a philosophical approach screaming:
“Autonomy! You have the power and tools to shape your own
world, creating additional spaces for your expression and free action!”

We’ve started some time ago, joyfully attacking supermarkets with our augmented reality invasion in Squatting Supermarkets.
Then we continued the Augmented reality experiments with FakePress,
exploring the possibility to invent new languages and usage grammars
for the world that had impacts on education, knowledge, society, cities
and relationships.
And, lately, with our recently released Augmented Reality Drug, with REFF, RomaEuropa FakeFactory.
All these actions used technologies and practices to reinvent the world,
our roles and the things we can do each days, promoting a multilayered,
polyphonic, multicultural, free, autonomous version of reality, and
suggesting that new imaginaries, languages, strategies,  politics and poetics can be created, reinventing art, business, activism and communication.
This is why we’re truly happy to present:
Vacanza!
(holiday)
http://ahacktitude.org/event/2011/doku.php?id=vacanza
a series of micro-workshops, micro-lectures, micro-forums and
micro-interstitial meetings executed using crumpled-up Augmented Reality
and other technologies.

When: April 1-2-3 2011, at AHAcktitude
Where: Carrara, Italy
AHAcktitude Program: http://ahacktitude.org/event/2011/doku.php?id=program
What:
An intense program of micro-workshops, micro-seminars,
micro-lectio-magistralis disseminated in the spaces and times of the
AHAcktitude meeting.
The micro courses will define an interstitial narrative that will traverse the whole event:

Workshops on Augmented Reality executed by throwing crumpled-up micro-sldies to other people during other workshops
Lectures on the Reinvention of Reality made for 1 people at the time
while we invent new ways of remixing beer, vodka and tomato juice
The tales of our latest actions with squats in London, student groups at universities, taking them “REFF’s
education program on the methodologic reinvention of reality through
critical practices of remix, mashup, recontextualization and
re-enactment”
and organizing the initiatives for the protest that will take place on March 24-25-26 2011:
narrated wearing stupid glasses with fake mustache and plastic noses,
hiding post-it notes, qrcodes, AR markers and distributing small
softwares, micro slideshows, mini websites prepared there, live, in
realtime.

Feedback and interaction
Workshops are open for everyone!
They are anytime, anywhere, always!
Being hit by one of the crumpled-up slides will mean that you are in one of them!
The objective of the workshops is to create emergent, spontaneous,
effective, reproducible, appropriatable, remixable, re-enactable,
disseminated, augmented discussions.
Throw me your micro crumpled slides with questions and ideas!
Throw them to other people, so that they can be in the workshop, too!
Copy, fake, reproduce, show and plagiarize the micro workshops! use the post-its and qrcodes!
Make “fake” ones yoruselves!
Place them all around AHAcktitude and in the whole city!
Copy the micro softwares and micro-lectures!
send them by mail to everyone! click “i like” and “share” on social networks!
Finally, reality is augmenting.

LPM Live Performers Meeting (May 2011 in Rome, September 2011 in Minsk)


Deadline:
Mon Mar 07, 2011 00:00

hello everyone,
we at Art is Open Source and FakePress will be coordinating the Sensible Data section of the next two editions of LPM ( http://www.liveperformersmeeting.net/ ), in Rome in May 2011, and in Minsk in September 2011.
Find below, at the bottom of the message, a complete call for action!
LPM this year invites artists working with live media on the ideas of generative arts, gender imaginaries, live cinema, realtime data and critical practices, 3D stereoscopic live video, urban interventions, video projection mapping and VJing.
about the Sensible Data section:
"Our lives, our forms of expression, the things we buy, our relationships and the things we learn, communicate and share are progressively (if not totally) changing into digital data that is transmitted over digital networks. Open access to data and information, and the possibility to determine how our information is shared and used are key factors to defend our freedoms and rights. Contemporary Visual cultures transform the fundamental role of data in our lives into new paradigms for aesthetics and interactivity, often poetically merging activism and beauty: database aesthetics, visuals produced using enormous sets of public/private data found on digital networks are only two of the forms of artistic expression that over time have produced wonderful sensorial experiences that have been able to both inform and activate the consciences of people worldwide."
For this we invite everyone working on realtime data, infoaesthetic visualizations, critical practices, hacking, tactical media, open data and live media to join us to start exploring the liberating power of realtime, accessible, open information!
