Preparing for the Correspondence Performance at the Fabulous Festival of Fringe Film
Helping kick off the ongoing artists’ Vines competition at Akimbo with a peak into Layne Hinton’s studio.
Just finished editing the profile of Tom Leonhardt at the Common Pulse Festival.
I’ve been developing the code for an xbee mesh network to support this large, outdoor audio installation. The tricky bits were getting Arduino Waveshields to accept remote commands, and getting users’ GPS data into the system. So I thought I’d share what I learned on Git-Hub to make it easier for the next artist trying this:
Rob King and I created a new piece for the Spanish Centre in Toronto for the 2013 Nuit Blanche.
Viewers contributed Vine videos that were transformed into stained glass windows, an illustration of the church of social media.
Just finished editing Kazumi’s performance at the Common Pulse Festival, where he was an artist-in-residence.
The Festival is starting; artists-in-residence are arriving!
Michael is presenting Tentacles in Mumbai:
This interactive waiting room has a pressure sensitive floor and an interactive video environment for kids to play with as they’re waiting for clinic appointments. Elaine Biddiss spearheaded the project and invite my class of senior design students to create the ambient play experiences. It just launched to the public this week.
Just attend Grand 2012 with my grad student research team. Barry Wellman made an interesting observation about the GRAND network: that the NSERC (science) and SSHRC (social science/humanities) people were like two solitudes, and the art / tech practitioners were the bridge between them.
I just did a workshop in mobile interactive art with the artists in residence at New Adventures in Sound Art. You can meet them at the Trans-X Symposium in May. I’ll be there presenting a paper called Telegraph with Alan Boulton and talking on a panel.
I’m presenting at ISEA next week in Istanbul. The intersection of Asia and Europe, Muslim and Christian, old and new. I can’t wait to drink the coffee and hear the music. Tons of interesting stuff at ISEA, too. Plus the Biennial is on.
If you can’t get to the MoMA exhibit you might like the catalogue…
I’m just about to begin shooting a new micro-budget feature film performed by Sonja Posod and myself. We’re shooting in the Durham training facility operated by the New Tribes Mission. (Google it.) And of course the inimitable Michael Tweed in behind the camera.
We’re off to the opening of Tentacles at the Museum of Modern Art tomorrow! And so just put a whole new version of the website online: www.tentacles.ca
