Year 2: Individual Project 4.2

Dear all,

This Monday Anne, Valerie and Wouter will unfortunately not be there because they are helping Celina with her final exam project. 
Therefore I decided to have individual meetings of 45 minutes with you instead of the collective presentations. As you know this project is about your creative process, so I expect to see you all even if you didn’t make as much progress as you maybe wanted. 

This is the schedule:

13.00-13.45: Mohamed

13.45-14.30: Tim

14.30-15.15: Bogdana
See you on Monday!


PS reminder to Anne, Valerie and Wouter:

Don't forget to let us know when you will send us a report of your individual project before we see each other again on Monday March 26.

Year 1: Beyond the Screen – The Multiple Image (5/6)

Image Design – Project 02 semester 2, 2018

Course: 14 February – 29 March 
Every Wednesday 10.00 – 17.00, room MI
Tutors: Elodie Hiryczuk & Sjoerd van Oevelen 
Session 5: Wednesday 21 March – 10.00 - 17.00 hrs

Dear all,

Thank you for yesterday’s viewings and feed back on the individual videos.
We will outline the final assignment of the multi screen again:

The assignment is about creating a spatial multi screen video installation/ environment with at least two screens (but not limited to two, so three, four, etc. is also possible)
In this way you step away from the passive 'viewer versus screen' set up, and will have to find ways to include the body/viewer in a more dynamic, interactive way.

We made some changes in the program which will give you more time and freedom to do this assignment.

So to recapitulate:
- Your multi screen work should contain 2 or more screens (which can be of all sorts: tv bricks, beamers, computers, small tft screens, phones, etc). The screens don’t have to be of the same size, it all depends on your idea.

- You can choose any place in the AKI which suits your idea (Moving Image class room, studio, corridors, etc). Make sure you check the availability with Ina.

- The images of your archive are a starting point. So you can either work with the material you already have OR you are welcome to shoot new material to create this multi screen installation. 

- For next Wednesday 21 you don’t have to install this set-up with the screens yet (so you can concentrate on the content and shooting the material you need). 
Nevertheless what we expect for next week is that you present a clear concept for your multi screen installation, including visual material and a clear idea about the location and the realization/technical aspects involved.

- For the finals on Thursday 29 you will focus on finalizing the work (with the feed back you received) and install/present the multi screen project. 

- Reserve the equipment you need at Warrie for the 29th on time. (Probably you will have to share the equipment with other students, so keep each other informed on your plans).

- Don’t forget to pay attention to the sound as well (you can ask Jan for advice).

We hope all is clear. If there are questions regarding this, we are happy to answer them!

Best regards,

Sjoerd and Elodie

10 Free tickets for symposium in Amsterdam March 22 & 23

The constant development and flux of technologies creates a unique opportunity for artists to experiment, play and create, but also presents a challenge for those charged with the responsibility of ensuring future presentations of these works. The preservation of and future access to born-digital art is as challenging as it is important. How to act on change? How to take control of future presentations?
In the context of the new LIMA project Art Host, the symposium ‘Transformation Digital Art 2018’ will take place at LIMA in Amsterdam. International participants from an array of professional backgrounds will ask what strategies can be developed in order to take artworks of an inherently digital, performative and processual nature into the future. Speakers will share best practices, research and cases studies concerning both artist-led and institutional strategies geared towards the future presentation of born-digital and software based art. 
We are pleased to announce the following names of artists, conservators, researchers and curators who will contribute to the symposium: Karen Archey (Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam), Josephine Bosma, Ives Bernard (IMAL), Serena Cangiano (SUPSI), Louise Cone (National Gallery of Denmark), Annet Dekker (University of Amsterdam), Harm van den Dorpel (Artist), Constant Dullaart (Artist), Patrícia Falcão (Tate Modern), Paulien ‘t Hoen (SBMK), Aurora Loerakker (Van Abbemuseum), Geert Lovink (INC), Aymeric Mansoux (Artist), Rachel Somers Miles (LIMA), Arthur van Mourik (Centraal Museum), Geert Mul (Artist), Martine Neddam (Artist), Marcel Ras (NDE), Joost Rekveld (Artist), Morgane Stricot (ZKM), Sylvia van Schaik (RCE), Mila van der Weide (LIMA), Gaby Wijers (LIMA), and more.
