Thinkings: How computers change the way we see

Southern Exposure will be hosting my three-part discussion series
called Thinkings: How computers change the way we see by altering the
way we think.

Tuesday, September 21, 7:00 – 9:00pm

Tuesday, October 19, 7:00 – 9:00pm

Tuesday, November 16, 7:00 – 9:00pm

Over the course of three evenings, participants will work through concepts that are crucial to understanding the computer’s significance: the automation of variation, the automation of the sublime, and the automation of the image itself. The book produced for the series is meant to focus attention on these visual aspects of computational culture and to stimulate discussion.

Purchase of the book is required ($35.00, scholarships available based on need). Participants are encouraged to attend all three events. There is limited space, so sign up in advance by calling Southern Exposure at 415-863-2141.

Inglobe Technologies supports MEDIARS and the 2nd International Workshop on Interactive Media with the donation of the Augmented Reality plug-in for Google SketchUp ($100 value) to each participant in the program.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

In the castle of this breathtaking, medieval town in the heart of Italy, come to study and experiment how to merge innovative interactive technology with history and culture. The workshop provides conceptual background and technical skills to develop interactive installations for arts, museums, facade projections and cultural exhibits. Also, previous works done by MEDIARS members will provide examples of the work process.

THE INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP

It is a 2-week full-time course on visual arts, media theory and technology in their relation to the place. The workshop is designed for students, scholars and artists from architecture, design, media arts and science fields. Classes are in English with a high quality tutoring, they are thought for the students to produce at the end of the training, an interactive multimedia art work that will be exhibited in the medieval town. Moreover, this experience abroad has already established an ongoing and growing dialogue between international artists.

This workshop is organized by the non-profit association MEDIARS (Centro Sperimentale di Media Interattivi per l’Arte e lo Spettacolo www.mediars.eu ) in collaboration with the local municipality and with international faculties and scholars from the University of Southern California, University of Florence, University of Berlin, University of California Los Angeles and California State University. With regard to the final work the students will use the technology owned by the Center, and they are free to bring theirs as well. The teachers would support and work as facilitators for the students to get the collective projects done.

TOURS

Together with our tour guides we are setting up very special tours in Rome and surroundings that include most famous historical and contemporary sites as well as out of the main route places.
