Hacking Public Space

Posted by Marjan on Tuesday February 23rd 2010 at 22:21

Arts centre Vooruit and SMAK in Ghent organise the biennial project Electrified. Hacking Public Space, including contemporary art, media art, sound and performance art. In the quest for a shared ‘mentality’ in these different dynamics, the public space is taken as a common thread. The term ‘public space’ is here all-embracing, without losing sight of the actual distinction between real and virtual public space.

Multiple voice/vision in FLACC

Posted by Priscilla on Monday February 22nd 2010 at 22:14

Multiple voice/vision is a research project by Rudi Knoops on the interaction between part-singing in music and audiovisual styling. For the first phase of this practically-oriented research project in the arts called ‘Dioramatized’, Rudi Knoops uses the FLACC workshop.

‘Dioramatized’ is a series of experimental studies into the use of optical equipment for visualizing musical polyphony in a miniaturized set-up and refers, firstly, to the 19th-century phenomenon of dioramas and, secondly, to the conversion of the diorama concept into a contemporary and interactive media format.

The result of the project will be a deconstruction of classic contrapuntal music converted into an interactive media setting. The project is funded by the IvOK (Institute for Practice-based Research in the Arts /K.U.Leuven).

puntKom #4 – Your textile or mine? A workshop on smart, interactive & social textiles

Posted by Niels on Thursday February 18th 2010 at 16:57
puntKom logoThe fourth puntKom (puntKom is a series of informal evenings on culture, technology, design,…) will be a hands-on evening on smart/ interactive /social textiles.
Two parallel workshops will be organised: Wendy van Wynsberghe (BE – Constant vzw – http://bit.ly/csKrsc) will provide for a practical insight in the creation of low-tech high-fun smart – interactive – social textiles.
The other workshop will be lead by Berit Greinke (GE – http://textileandsound.com/ & http://www.beritgreinke.com/). In her work Greinke tries to address other senses than only the visual or the tactile when working with (or wearing) textiles. She will moderate a creative brainstorm, followed by a workshop starting from the tools (like an Arduino-based light-scanner) she developed in her artistic work.

puntKom #4
is held on the 11th of March at the Media & Design Academy in Genk. The evening starts at 18.45h and ends at 22h.
The workshops are free, but registration at http://www.puntKom.nu is obliged!
(We can only allow up to 15 people to register for each workshop. Do not hesitate to do so…)

puntKom is a mix of crispy lectures, tasty workshops, bite-sized performances and yummy demos. In short, a meeting place for you (yes, You!), passionate about media, culture, design and technology! It is organised by the Master Program Communication & MultimediaDesign.
