Golan Levin is organising an event dedicated to ‘Mobile Media and Interactive Arts’ at Carnegie Mellon University from the 6th to the 8th of November. Many presenters and organisers of the Mobile Music Workshops will be there, including Lalya Gaye, Teri Rueb, Jürgen Scheible, and myself. The other presenters have also used sound and music in their works, or have other really exciting mobile media work, and I’m really looking forward to all their presentations and hands-on workshops. Check out the website and I hope to see many of you there! I’ll present a paper “Towards a history of mobile phone arts”, that will (of course) have a sonic and musical focus, while looking at the bigger picture of a decade of mobile phone art, and pointing out some historic framework that suggests even a century of mobile phone arts – kind of…we will see.
The event website announces:
ART && CODE is an event series and online community dedicated to the democratization of computer programming for artists, young people, and the rest of us.
This November 6-8, we continue our successful workshop/lecture series with MOBILE ART && CODE: Mobile Media and Interactive Arts – a symposium on the aesthetic and tactical potentials of mobile, networked and locative media. The three-day event will feature intimate, practical, arts-oriented programming workshops for popular mobile platforms (such as the iPhone, Android, Nokia Smartphones, Arduino, SMS, and Asterisk PBX systems) along with an all-day series of free lecture presentations that contextualizes the use of these technologies in a variety of contemporary critical, artistic and design practices.
MOBILE ART && CODE is made possible by a generous grant from Microsoft Research, with oversight by the Center for Computational Thinking at CMU. The ART && CODE symposium series is a project of the CMU STUDIO for Creative Inquiry, directed by Golan Levin. If you have questions or concerns about MOBILE ART && CODE, please email Golan Levin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
