Test_Lab: Urban Screen Savers
May 20, 20:00-23:00, Eendrachtsstraat 10, Rotterdam

Featuring: Michelle Teran, Ubermatic (CA) | Gunnar Green, TheGreenEyl
(DE) | Matthias Oostrik (NL) | Toine Horvers and Paul Cox (NL) | Rui
Guerra, INTK (PT)

A screen is a powerful medium in an artist’s hands, and public space is
an appealing domain for encounters between an artist and his or her
audience. But despite an ongoing increase in the number of digital urban
screens in metropolitan spaces, their potential for artistic
intervention and exhibition is only seldom exploited.

Will artists end up merely designing urban screen savers, or can a
thorough look at the artists’ current demands contribute to defining a
stronger artistic agenda for the urban screen, thereby ‘saving’ the
urban screen as an artistic medium?

Augmented Reality Expert Meeting and TEDx Rotterdam
June 4, Rotterdam

V2_ will hold its second Augmented Reality Expert Meeting on June 4.
After a successful edition last December, this time we will explore the
artistic possibilities of AR technology in more depth.

The first edition of TEDx Rotterdam will take place on the same day. As
an official "creative partner" for TEDx Rotterdam, V2_ will select
speakers for this popular conference. Therefore, a speaker exchange
between the two events is a possibility. We will announce the program
and participants soon at www.v2.nl

The AR Expert Meeting is open to invited guests only. If you are
interested in attending, please contact Jan Misker
<http://www.v2.nl/archive/people/jan-misker> at the V2_Lab.
