The 7th international celebration of interactive media art will take place at PB43 and other venues in Copenhagen, Denmark. Scientists, researchers, technologists, curators and media artists working in digital media in its many forms will meet, present and discuss their work during the event, which takes place in Copenhagen, Denmark on

October 28 – November 3, 2013

re-new 2013 mixes and mingles artistic and academic works and practices in novel settings, to emphasize The Big Picture as a real but open-ended fusion of media art, media technology and science. The customary delimitation of expert areas is necessary for gathering specific knowledge or executing a particular work. But the multi-disciplinary nature of media art, -analysis and -usage requires a wider contextualizing and a bigger overview: this is where we need to visit The Big Picture.

Sound Art Curating / Curating Sound – Methodologies, Histories, Theories, Archives, Interactions

The role and function of the curator is being transformed by the modus operandi and creative practices of mediated art forms, interactive art and design. One of the effects of this transformation is the creation of a new emerging field that of sound art curating.

Search and Interaction in Media Archives

Open seminar on search and interaction in media archives at DR, 9:00-13:00 Thursday June 27.

Place: Emil Holms Kanal 20, 2300 Copenhagen S

With digital production and digitisation of cultural heritage archives arise a hitherto unseen potential for discovery, creative use and re-use of broadcast audio and video. In order to take advantage of this potential, however, search and interaction for such archives need to be optimized and reinvented. DR and the Royal School of Library and Information Science at the University of Copenhagen invite interested practitioners and researchers to a seminar on search and interaction in media archives.

LARM på Vallekilde

8. juni 2013 | Posted by | Category: larm-begivenheder

Tag med radioprojektet LARM på Vallekilde Højskole og bliv reporter eller vært for en uge. Få inspiration fra nogle af landets dygtigste radiofolk inden for reportage, montage, drama og live radio og vær med til at forvandle højskolen til en pulserende radiostation med daglige udsendelser.

Kurset henvender sig både til folk med radioerfaring og dem, der vil prøve kræfter med mediet for første gang. Kurset er en uges lydlegeplads, hvor du undersøger verden med ørerne, fanger nuet og får tips til interviewteknik, optagelse og redigering. Alt sammen krydret med lyttebiograf og hyggeligt samvær.

Hele programmet kan ses her på siden inden længe.

FOTO OG RADIO
Larm forløber samtidig med kurset Foto på Vallekilde. Der vil derfor være god mulighed for at se flotte og historiefortællende billeder og dyrke samspillet mellem foto og lyd.

Digitale korpusser. Hvilke spørgsmål kan man stille, og hvordan får man dem besvaret?
Dorthe Duncker, INSS, KU
Torsdag den 6. juni, 14.15-16.00, KUA lokale 21.0.49

Det er ingen kunst i dag at få adgang til at søge i store digitale tekstkorpusser, men hvad kan man forvente at finde i korpusserne, og hvordan skal man bære sig ad for at finde det? Korpuslingvistikken har udviklet sig med rivende hast gennem de seneste årtier og dyrkes ikke længere kun blandt en lille kreds af specialister, men er blevet mainstream. Storstilede humanistiske infrastrukturprojekter lægger op til at alle og enhver skal kunne bygge korpusser selv, men hvad kan man overhovedet med et korpus, hvad kan man ikke, og hvad kræver det af brugeren eller selvbyggeren? Hvordan undgår humanister at ende som digitale amatører? I oplægget vil jeg diskutere hvad et korpus er, hvilke forskellige typer der findes, og hvilke overvejelser man har brug for at gøre sig, for at kunne få et fornuftigt udbytte af at bruge dem. Jeg vil give eksempler på konkrete undersøgelser og diskutere deres metoder og resultatfortolkning.

Dette er det ottende og sidste foredrag i en serie om ’metoder og perspektiver i digitaliseret humaniora’. Alle er velkomne.

Pervasive games, snyd, kreativitet og læring

Stine Ejsing-Duun, Aalborg Universitet
Onsdag den 22. maj
KUA, lokal 21.0.49, 14.15-16.00

Pervasive games er, populært sagt, digitale spil der bryder computerens rammer og spilles i fysiske rum. Et eksempel på pervasive games er spil der udnytter mobiltelefoners gps-oplysninger som basis for spiloplevelsen. Pervasive games spilles således i hybride rum mellem ’computerens’ interface og den fysiske verden.

I den senere tid har pervasive games vundet stor udbredelse, dels fordi spilteknologierne (mobiltelefoner mm.) er blevet lettere at transportere ud i den fysiske verden, dels fordi man har anerkendt at den hybride form mellem computer og virkelighed giver nye og hidtil uprøvede muligheder for læring.

Når vi spiller i hybride rum og spilreglerne er tvetydige, gives der plads for kreative løsninger og snyd, og nye læringspotentialer opstår. Oplægget er baseret på forskning i pervasive games gennem de senere år og særligt et nyere case-studie fra en gymnasial kontekst.

Dette er det syvende af i alt otte oplæg under overskriften Metoder og teknologier i digitaliseret humaniora. Alle er velkomne.

Digital Archives, Audiovisual Media and Cultural Memory

Digitization enables us to meet cultural heritage artifacts and narratives in heretofore unimagined media and platforms. Accessibility to written, visual, auditory and audiovisual sources increase dramatically. But how do we wish to access and interact with cultural heritage sources in the 21st Century? This conference focuses on practices of cultural memory in the multiform meetings between users and cultural heritage. What interfaces are established between users, be they researchers or ‘ordinary’ citizens, and the archives of cultural heritage? What possibilities are opened for interaction with cultural heritage artifacts? And what methods and scientific paradigms are relevant to order and describe such immense archives.

One aspect, which seems still to have received too little treatment is the question of the auditory and audiovisually based cultural heritage’s role in the construction of historical narratives. Music, film, radio, and television have become ingrained in a nation’s cultural memory, and in many, not least, European countries, state-governed national broadcasting corporations have played and do still play a vital role in narrating and interpreting the past, not least by establishing institutional production archives which give producers access to historical material otherwise inaccessible. Such reuses of historical materials afford renegotiations of the historical past(s) by valuating the new historical materials as significant historical sources. Digitization means that such historical materials, be they broadcast or other cultural heritage artifacts, are to an increasing degree accessible outside the production environment, e.g. for research. One recurring problem is that the materials are still under the editorial control of the parent institution and accessible only for some uses to some users. This motivates a new look at the question of who has the right to circulate archived material in what forms, and thus who is allowed to narrate the past. The question is relevant at all levels, from the level of national cultural politics all the way down to the concrete definition of rights for individual users in the archive or on broadcaster’s websites.
