BIO
I am a film/new media artist, researcher and curator from Los Angeles. Currently, I am a PhD researcher at the University of Amsterdam and a member of the Imagined Futures Research (iFut) group. My research has focused on strategies of documentation, preservation and re-presentation of historical performative film works (Expanded Cinema). I am also working in praxis and premise to chart and interrogate subjective mapping tendencies in (dis)locative media(s). Themes of the fragment,translation, the trace are also intrinsic to my work within experimental, exilic and diasporan film.

[Pera pARkours] an augmented reality project [BETA] - as workshopped at ISEA 2011


Dates:
Sat Sep 17, 2011 09:00 - Sun Sep 25, 2011

Location:
Istanbul , Turkey

Pera pARkours was recently workshopped at ISEA in Augmented Istanbul: Create the Bosphorus AR tour lead by the Stedelijk Museum ARtours team, Margriet Schavemaker and Hein Wils. Pera pARkours is a work in progress that uses Augmented Reality (Layar) to re/dis/locate fragments from the archive Coffee Deposits:::Topologies of Chance, an interactive cross-media project by Tina Bastajian (US/NL) and Seda Manavoğlu (NL/TR). These "post-scripts" are located within a small radius in the Pera/Galata vicinity to uncover past/present narratives weaving both fictive and documentary elements.

*Pera (also known as Galata) was a district in Constantinople
(established circa 13th century as a Genoese trading colony) north of
the Golden Horn, which now encompasses parts of Beyoğlu, Karaköy,
Tophane, Tarlabaşı, Cihangir etc. Pera originates from Greek, meaning
"beyond or across" and the district was particularly known for its
presence of Greek, Armenian, Italian, and Jewish residents and
businesses.
