May 7-16, 2014. This year we will develop our module in cooperation with the Institute of Electronic Music (http://iem.at/) They have started in 2012 the project "SysSon"(http://sysson.kug.ac.at/), which aims to systematically sonify climate data. Further partners are the Wegener Center for Climate and Global Change (http://wegcenter.uni-graz.at/ ) and the Systematic Musicology (http://systematische-musikwissenschaft.uni-graz.at/ ) from the Karl-Franzens University in Graz.
University of Nova Gorica is organizing an international 3D printing workshop in RogLab Ljubljana on the theme Logos - Multitude manifestations of Rog. 2 spaces are availabel for general public. Application deadline: Deceber 5 2012. Workshop Kickoff contact and start of online research and preparation phase December 10, 2012 and onward, workshop on site January 10-12, 2013.
Details about the application as also workshop itself
In one month of joint online preparation international participants of the workshop have acquired the basics of parametric 3d-modelling and -printing. In parallel they did research on the existing practices and discourses in and around Rog - to scrape out possible identification pathways for developing algorithmic artefacts.
Those logo-like objects have been interactively finalized in situ and materialized in an intensive 3-day workshop at RogLab [roglab.si]. In the end they illustrated the formalizing process of identity hypotheses, rather than codify the characteristics of Rog. All of which are intended to be concrete statements and unfinished contributions at the same time.
Looking forward to ADRIART? You should be!
Though not providing a degree itself Graz University of Technology (TUG) will be vibrant partner in the field of Trans- and Intermedia Arts for the "Advanced Digital and Regional Interactions in Art Teaching". The Institute of Contemporary Art (IZK) and the Insitute of Architecture and Media (IAM) will particularly try to arouse interest for interactive interventions in public space.
After two months of research-based script development about the "Hidden Live(r)s of Venice", on November 21 2011 students from three universities and several countries met in the floating city to produce 6 short documentaries about Venice, its interesting professions and personalities..., all under the mentorship of the renowned film director, professor Rajko Grlić.
