My presentation centered around the development of my latest project, AV Clash, as an example of an art work on the threshold of becoming a tool. I also mentioned Reactable and Tenori-on as projects in the frontier between art work and tool.
On May 18 2010, I presented my project AV Clash at e-Vent, a “demo day” type of event at Tallinn University (Estonia), organized by its Institute of Informatics. I was a guest researcher at the Institute of Informatics between 2009 and 2010.
AV Clash was under development at the time. The prototype shown at e-Vent lacked any animation material, and the graphical user interface was incomplete. Still, it was interesting to present a prototype of AV Clash for the first time, before showing a beta version at SMC Barcelona a couple of months later.
Today I will make a presentation on “Master and Margarita – An Interactive Audiovisual Adaptation of Bulgakov’s Novel” at the seminar “From interdisciplinarity to intermediality – A change in the research paradigma?”, at University of Helsinki, Finland.
In 12/11/2009, I made a presentation of the current state of my research at Aalto University Media Factory Researcher’s Forum seminar, “Public Space Contested. New Media Technologies, Art and Society”: http://www.aaltomediafactory.fi/?p=394
On 7/March/2009, I gave a talk on Video Jack’s “Master and Margarita“at Tusovka’s annual event, in Korjamo, meeting. I also presented a preview of the project, which would premiere a few weeks later at PixelAche Festival, Kiasma Theatre, Helsinki. Tusovka is an association promoting Russian culture in Finland: http://www.tusovka.fi
On 17/11/2008, me and André Carrilho presented our work as Video Jack at the St. Petersburg University of Film and TV, Russia. At the time, we were performing in St. Petersburg at the Electro Mechanica festival, and I was invited to do an artist presentation at the university. Our presentation focused particularly on the Master and Margarita project, being developed at the time.
In 5/6/2008, I participated at the Encontros de Arte e Design (Art and Design Encounters), Coimbra Portugal. Specifically, I presented under the panel on “Creativity, multidisciplinarity and internationalization”. I presented my work as Video Jack so far, with emphasis on the recently released (at the time) AVOL. The event was organized by Escola Superior de Educação de Coimbra.
On 16/5/2007, I made my first presentation at a Media Lab Helsinki Demo Day. The topic of my presentation was the recently released project Heat Seeker, and the tour of the project.
After that presentation, I have been presenting my next projects at Media Lab Demo Days, in 5/2009, 5/2010 and 12/2010. In the next presentations, I didn’t prepare specific presentation materials, focusing instead in the web versions of the projects.
In 18/4/2007, I presented my work at Tartu Art College, Estonia. The presentation was centered in my work as Coden and Video Jack, and foundation work leading up to it. At the time, I was preparing AVOL (presented at the time under the preliminary title “AV Duo”).
