Want to Win a Residency at CERN?

Prix Ars Electronica Collide@CERN is the new international competition for digital artists to win a residency at CERN, the world’s largest particle physics laboratory in Geneva. It is the first prize to be announced as part of the new Collide@CERN artists residency programme initiated by the laboratory.

The Winning Artist Will Receive:

  • 10,000 Euros prize money
  • rent
  • subsistence and travel are funded from a designated limited fund that is in addition to the prize money. The awarding of this prize is thanks to the generosity of Ars Electronica and the funding of the creative residencies made possible by the generosity of anonymous donors
  • insurances for the residencies are funded by the Exclusive Sponsor of all artists insurances for the Collide@CERN programme, UNIQA Assurances SA Switzerland

CERN is looking for digital artists who will be truly inspired by CERN, showing their wish to engage with the ideas and/or technology of particle physics and with CERN as a place of scientific collaboration, using them as springboards of the imagination which dare to go beyond the paradigm. You might be a choreographer, performer, visual artist, film maker or a composer – what you all have in common is that you use the digital as the means of making your work and/or the way of presenting it.

CFC Media Lab Welcomes International Guest Director

Last week we had the absolute pleasure of introducing International Guest Director, Dawid Marcinkowski (Director/Screenwriter/Editor/Designer), to our current Residents of the TELUS Interactive Art & Entertainment Program*.

What began with screenings of his online interactive music videos Smolik Attitude (www.nobudget.art.pl) and Someday on the Misty Island (www.dawidmarcinkowski.com/mistyisland) as well as his interactive film Sufferosa (sufferrosa.com) at TIFF Bell Lightbox, ended with a reveal of his process as an interactive filmmaker during the post-screening Q&A with our Residents and CFC Media Lab Guest Faculty member, Todd Denis, Founder/Editor of jawbone.tv.

Sufferrosa is one of the biggest interactive web-based movies ever made (110 scenes, 3 alternative endings, and 20 different locations!) The film is a satire of cult, beauty and youth in the present-day world.

Do you remember the film ‘Logan’s Run’ (1976), where everybody who is older than 30 gets exterminated? Probably our generation is not endangered by such experiments. But there is a chance that, in 40 years time we will all have transformed into frustrated woopies (Well-Off Older People) who spend their life savings on plastic surgery. And when it happens that the scalpel is not enough, we will probably head directly to the clinic of Carlos von Braun. As Mae West once said “You are never too old to become younger”…

INplay 2010 Conference Features CFC Media Lab Alumnus

hoodie_libertygrand1

CFC Media Lab Alumnus, Rose Bianchini, will be speaking at INplay 2010 tomorrow, May 18 at 4 pm at Liberty Grand, in the Centennial Room, located on the Exhibition Grounds in Toronto.


INplay
is a unique, international event that connects kids creative industries with insights and opportunities in the interactive space. From the video game business to the broadcast industry, from toys to toons, the INplay conference brings together leaders in the kids space to learn, network and be inspired by interactive.

The conference will feature 3 major streams each covering a different dimension of working with properties for kids aged 2-12:

    Inspiration - creativity and content stream
    Investment – business stream
    Insights – research stream

Rose Bianchini has been selected to speak on an “Insights” panel for Cutting Edge Research: Input Devices. This topic will be addressed through a series of short presentations followed by a moderated Q&A.

The keyboard, mouse and headset are old school. What is coming next to improve kids’ interaction with the digital world?

Moderator: Steve Szigeti (Ph.D Candidate – Knowledge Media Design Graduate)

Other Presenters: Chris Muscarella (Cofounder at Do Crew) and Vincent John Vincent (President of Gesturetek Inc.)

Rose Bianchini prototyped Neighbourhoodie with David McCallum and Kathleen Climie during the Telus IAEP Fall Residency of 2009 at the CFC Media Lab.

Neighbourhoodie is a hoodie that combines the fun and dynamic of street games like ‘zombie tag’ with the technological experience space young people grow up with today, online or with computer games. The ‘Neighbourhoodie’ has the potential to motivate us to leaving not only the couch but the house by playing hybrid games that partly happen in the real world and partly in our all important virtual world.

Neighbourhoodie has been featured on top wearable electronics and gadget blogs, talk2myshirt.com and gizmodiva.com.

INplay is taking place May 18 & May 19. Tickets are still available!
