I do hope to see you at ANAT's [MEDIA STATE] in Adelaide in the coming week.
[MEDIA STATE] examines the increasing role of media arts in the public realm
- exploring technologically created spaces and how media art can be used as
a tool for social, political and creative intervention.
* Media States Forum
Media artists work in public through mobile phone artwork, guerilla style
projections, bio-art performances, architecturally embedded sound bytes and
video in transportation nodes. Supporting these practices is a tapestry of
Media Arts residential projects and networking across the Asia Pacific
region. Facilitated by MELINDA RACKHAM with the participation of ALISON
CARROLL, DEBORAH KELLY, and STEVE KURTZ.
* Hard Copy
Hard Copy is a professional, strategic workshop facilitated by ROGER MALINA
on publishing the outcomes of, and criticism about, interdisciplinary
creative art practices. Co-organised by ANAT and Creativity and Cognition
Studios with the participation of Fibreculture Network, RealTime, Leonardo
publications Australia Council for the Arts, Smart Internet Technology CRC,
and the Australian Research Council.
* Mobile Journeys
OPENING SUNDAY 12 MARCH - 3PM @ State Library Treasures Wall
Mobile Journeys is an exhibition of art made for mobile phones, which will
both inspire you and challenge the way you think about and use your phone.
Videos, games and wallpapers will be available for free distribution to your
mp3 players, PDAs, and mobile phones, via an Aura Hypertag Billboard.
Festival projects supported by [MEDIA STATE] are:
* The Peoples' Portrait by artist ZHANG GA lights up Adelaide and other
cities around the world with reciprocal large-scale portrait projections
intertwining local and global audiences.
* CARSTEN NICOLAI'S alva noto presents a compelling audiovisual
performance of sound compositions morphed into electronic projections.
* Project 3 delivers a rich program of electronic and computer music and
film by local, national and international artists including ROBIN MINNARD.
* Emerging Fields Forum provides a platform for four internationally
renowned media artists to discuss their practice.
* ARI workshops are two dynamic events, skilling up participants in the
practical applications of setting up and managing Artist Run Initiatives and
publishing Blogs and Zines.
