A new widespread condition of sociability invites a questioning of the role of media art practice and new media histories in the context of wider cultural and technological developments, and Rewire aspires to do just that.
CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: The Open Hardware Scholarship!
- Do you have the next big Open Hardware idea, but just don?t have the funds
The Open Hardware Summit (OHS) is announcing its first Open Hardware
scholarship this year! The purpose of the OHS scholarship is to support
emerging artists/inventors and developers by providing funding for works
that are released as Open Source Hardware. Granting these funds is an
opportunity to draw attention to the Open Source Hardware movement, to give
back to the DIY community, and to give you the chance to join a growing
roster of gamechangers in Open Source Hardware history. If you have a
project that is in the spirit of the OHS and supports the OHSW definition,
we welcome your submissions.
Upwards of $2000 will be awarded. The scholarship is made available by the
generous individuals and sponsors who have made the Open Hardware Summit
The winner will be chosen by the public. All projects will be viewable
online and votes will be collected during the week of the summit. People
will be able to vote on their favorite project remotely or onsite. A check
will be presented to the winning artist/group at the conclusion of OHS on
September 15th at the New York Hall of Science

This inter-disciplinary graduate conference seeks to address questions concerning the multiple dimensions of remix at the intersection of culture and communication. Lawrence Lessig has proposed “remix” as one of the main outcomes of social and cultural practices enabled by new technologies that allow for easy production and sharing. Remix is the creative mixing of cultural elements, a collage, a blending, a hybridization of genres, creative destruction.

Conference ‘eSphere: Living in the cloud’ at STRP Festival reflects on a new networked reality
What if trees, lighting and shop windows become social media? What if everything is connected to everything? What’s art and culture like in such a networked reality? At the conference ‘eSphere: Living in the Cloud’ international artists, (neuro)scientists and media scholars reflect on the meaning of new technologies for our culture on Friday the 26th of November. Together with Baltan Lab’s Funware symposium the next day, they present their view on a future full of RFID-chips, brain implants and unimaginable possibilities. The conference takes place in parallel with the STRP field trial of the eSphere, a large scale exploration of RFID and the experience of art.
