- Alpha-ville Festival [Events] 'Cell', Initial concept design by James Alliban and Keiichi Matsuda. Photograph by Ghaasan Daghestani “The idea that digital is something new and transformative is now quite old. So the question for most creatives is not about going digital - it's about making it feel less digital, about making participation and interaction feel post-digital; making the tech less techy. We see this reflected back in the freshest creative and cultural work and Alpha-ville is probably where you see that most vividly in this country.” Tom Uglow, Director of Creative Labs at Google. The 2011 edition of Alpha-ville Festival provides an online and live platform to explore, test and disseminate new ideas, emerging trends, collaborations and groundbreaking works. Running from 22-25 September in London, the programme presents social media and interactive art, open labs, meet-ups, talks, workshops and screenings alongside with live music, visual performances and parties. Gathering artists, creative coders, new media technologists, designers, architects, professionals, musicians, researchers and academics, some of the key names are: Tom Uglow (Google Creative Labs), Marius Watz, Filip Visnjic (CreativeApplications.Net), Man Bartlett, Daito Manabe, Moritz Stefaner, Keiichi Matsuda, James Alliban, Pantha Du Prince, Jon Hopkins, Jacaszek and Kangding Ray. This year’s programme addresses the transition from a digital to a post-digital culture, that looks beneath technology at how human behaviours such as collaboration, participation and interaction have redefined the creative practice and society itself, and at how the physical boundaries between reality and online are being blurred. Not to miss: Alpha-ville Symposium: FROM DIGITAL TO POST-DIGITAL - Friday 23rd September - featuring: Filip Visnjic – Architect, Lecturer and Founder of Creative Applications Network Tom Uglow – Director of Creative Labs Europe, Google Patrick Hussey – Digital Director at Arts & Business Mortiz Stefaner – Information Designer Martin Ahe – Business Development at Stiktu Keiichi Matsuda, Designer and Film-maker Bill Thompson – Technology Writer at BBC Drew Hemment – Director & Founder of Future Everything Katy Beale – Founder / Director at Caper More details and to get your tickets available here: www.alpha-ville.co.uk Teaser stills by […]

- Resonate – Platform for Art and Technology Last day in Belgrade in January 2011 and I receive a call from Maria and Jelena to quickly meet and have a quick chat before I head back to London. One coffee, two coffees and plenty of cigarettes we agree to do a festival - as simple as that. I don't think I have ever made an important decision so quickly that has cost me endless hours of work but has had such an amazing satisfaction from seeing it through. In a nutshell this is how Resonate came to being. Looking back now at March when we officially launched the festival, all feels like one large blur. Not having seen any talks - running around, making sure everything goes according to plan, and apart from the opensource panel I chaired, clear picture of what actually happened at Resonate is only now coming together. This is definitely not thanks to my short span memory but rather the new site we have just launched. For those that might have missed it, Resonate is a new platform for networking, information, knowledge sharing and education. It's aim is to bring together distinguished artists with an opportunity of participating in a forward-looking debate on the position of technology in art and culture. The project's aim is to be broad enough to encompass areas ranging from software engineering to visual arts theory, but also to create a bridge between culturally separated segments of the artistic and intellectual scene through a comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach. This is a topic that has always concerned CAN and where our role is to uncover and contextualising noteworthy work, Resonate's role is to pave the way for people to meet and "resonate" with one another. The festival was held in March this year in Belgrade in collaboration with NGO Magnetic Field B and Dom Omladine in Belgrade. Today we launched Resonate Platform, a new website dedicated to opening a dialogue between Resonate audience and festival participants. The new online platform titled “Resonate – Platform for Art and Technology” aims to deliver the following: 1. Regular updates on the event developments 2. Videos / Tutorials / Workshop Sessions 3. Tips and Tricks and Resources 4. Festival video documentation including full lecture recordings. Resonate was one long project and it continues to be one. We are now working on the 2013 edition which promisses to be even better if that is at all possible (see press reviews). Thank you all who came to 2012 edition. We hope to see you again in 2013!

- Workshops: Mind the Beep by Yuri Suzuki + Camera Drama by Roel Wouters In November last year ECAL University of art and design Lausanne in Switzerland was the host to two very interesting workshops aimed at their Media & Interaction and Industrial Design students. One workshop was led by Yuri Suzuki and the other by Roel Wouters. Having visited ECAL last year for end of year reviews it is one of the most fascinating schools I have been to. Regardless of the beautiful building designed by Bernard Tschumi, both the diversity and quality of work as well as the selection of invited lecturers continues to draw our attention. Mind the beep by Yuri Suzuki This one week Workshop was led by the London based, japanese Designer, Yuri Suzuki. Projects were realised by the students in Media & Interaction Design in collaboration with the Industrial Design students from ECAL. Workshop based on the concept of re-designing soundscape. In this workshop, re-consider and re-design alert sound such as alarm clock, ringing sound of mobile phone and bike bell. Improving surroundings with sound. www.yurisuzuki.com That was our first workshop with M&ID students collaborating with Industrial design students, both in the Bachelor level. The students were not so used to work with sound or to generate sounds so they also went trough a lot of experimentations and trials. At the end we had a collection of object playing with the topic, all in the form of working prototypes. The video contains just a selection of them. One of these projects, the high-heels, will be presented next week in Milan during the Salone del mobile in the exhibition called «Savoir-Faire» from ECAL at Spazio Orso 16. A Camera Drama by Roel Wouters This workshop was led by the dutch designer Roel Wouters. Projects were realised by the students in Media & Interaction Design in collaboration with the Industrial Design students. The brief included building an apparatus that produces videos the world has never seen before. www.roelwouters.com The workshop also mixed M&ID students and Industrial design students, and was happening in parallel as the workshop with Yuri Suzuki. The students worked on embed cameras and developed apparatus for these cameras (using GoPro cams, smarthphones etc.). The video contains just a selection of them. Some of the projects will be presented next week in Milan during the Salone del mobile in the exhibition called «Savoir-Faire» from ECAL at Spazio Orso 16. -- For more information on courses available at ECAL, […]
