    Lost (and Found) in the Third Dimension:
    Stereoscopy and the Artistic Imagination

    Stereoscopic 3D has been a constant presence in Western societies for more than 150 years, and many of its features were anticipated even earlier. Stereoscopy is often treated as a cult phenomenon, a gimmick that appears and disappears over and over again. But it is much more than that. Beside popular-cultural applications, it has played roles in science, medicine, warfare – and art. There are numerous artists who have been drawn to it, often commenting on the past uses of stereoscopy by their works. By developing an archaeology of stereoscopic 3D, this lecture reveals some of its earlier (often forgotten) manifestations, and demonstrates how these have been applied and developed further by a wide range of artists.

  2. Maréorama Resurrected: An Illustrated Lecture by Erkki Huhtamo
    Performed 22 October, 2011 as a part of "Art && Code 3D: DIY 3D Sensing and Visualization"
    Presented by the Frank-Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry at Carnegie Mellon University

    Performed throughout the 1800s, moving panoramas were among the most popular entertainment forms of the 19th century. In this poetic lecture-demonstration, scholar and media archeologist Dr. Erkki Huhtamo draws on his research into moving panoramas and dioramas to discuss various historical apparata that laid the groundwork for 20th and 21st century immersive applications—including those created now by game designers and new-media artists.

    The particular focus of this unique presentation is the Maréorama, a huge multi-sensory spectacle created by Hugo d’Alesi and his team for the Exposition Universelle of 1900 in Paris. Working from high-resolution scans and the original piano music composed for the Maréorama by Henri Kowalski, Huhtamo reconstructs several sequences from this simulated sea voyage on the Mediterranean. The performance features live piano accompaniment by Stephen L. I. Murphy.

    Professor Erkki Huhtamo is a media archaeologist, writer and exhibition curator. At the UCLA Department of Design & Media Arts his area is media history and theory. Dr. Huhtamo is a leading practitioner of "media archaeology", an emerging critical approach he has helped developed since the early 1990′s. It excavates forgotten, neglected and suppressed media-cultural phenomena, helping us to penetrate beyond canonized accounts about media culture. In recent years, Professor Huhtamo has applied this approach to phenomena like peep media, the notion of the screen, games and mobile media. His most recent books are "Media Archaeology: Approaches, Applications, and Implications" (co-edited with Jussi Parikka, University of California Press, 2011) and a forthcoming monograph titled "Illusions in Motion: a Media Archaeology of the Moving Panorama and Related Spectacles".

    Dr. Huhtamo maintains one of the world’s most extensive collections of antique optical viewing devices, such as magic lanterns, peep show boxes, camera obscuras, praxinoscopes, and kinoramas, which form primary resources for his research, pedagogy, and performance work.

  3. Arnold Blinn (Microsoft Studios) and Stewart Tansley (Microsoft Research)
    present the Technical Keynote presentation at ART && CODE 3D, October 2011.
    The folks who gave us the Kinect present an inside view of its development, a snapshot of its current place in the world, and a sneak peek at what’s in store for this revolutionary device. Plus, maybe some anecdotes about how Microsoft came to love the hacks :) Co-presented by Stewart Tansley — director of Natural User Interface (NUI) research and acting product manager of the Kinect SDK at Microsoft Research — and Microsoft Partner Architect Arnold Blinn, who organizes development of Kinect titles within Microsoft Studios.

    Marc Davis, visionary technologist and inventor, is a founding partner of Invention Arts. With a distinguished career of technology research and development at the MIT Media Lab, Interval Research, UC Berkeley, and Yahoo!, Marc’s thought leadership has articulated—often over a decade beforehand—how people, the web, and the world will be connected. For over two decades, Marc and his teams have done pioneering research and development in digital video databases and remixing, automated media production, multimedia information systems, computer vision, mobile and context-aware computing, mobile media, social media, and mobile and social advertising. With a radically interdisciplinary background, unique insight into the future of technology, media, and society, and the ability to develop and apply highly generative invention frameworks, Marc has transformed his breakthrough ideas into over 150 patent applications, as well as research prototypes and products.

    Most recently, Marc was Chief Scientist and Vice President of Early Stage Products (ESP) for Yahoo! Mobile. At Yahoo!, Marc and his team invented and helped realize the future of mobile, social, media, monetization, and platforms. While developing a large portfolio of strategic and disruptive patents and internal prototypes, ESP worked with product teams on innovative products from Yahoo! Mobile such as Social Pulse that reinvents mobile communications by aggregating a user's social networks and communications tools into a socially connected address book. Marc was also a key contributor to the Yahoo! Open Strategy (Y!OS) and the vision demo for the future of Yahoo! shown at CES 2008.

    In 2005, Marc Davis worked with Yahoo! Inc. and UC Berkeley to launch Yahoo! Research Berkeley, which produced a number of breakthrough public prototypes in mobile media and social media: ZoneTag, context-aware mobile photo capture and tagging software; TagMaps, a collective map of human attention created by analyzing the millions of geocoded Flickr photos; Zurfer, a context-aware mobile photo browser; and Remixer, a web-based video remixing tool developed for the San Francisco International Film Festival.

    From 2002 to 2006, Marc Davis served as Assistant Professor at the UC Berkeley School of Information where he directed Garage Cinema Research. Marc lead a multi-year Mobile Media Metadata research project that pioneered context-aware mobile media uploading, tagging, and sharing as well as context-aware face recognition. Marc was also a Co-Founder of the interdisciplinary UC Berkeley Center for New Media. From 1999 to 2002, Marc Davis was Chairman and Chief Technology Officer of Amova, Inc., a developer of media automation and personalization technology that developed patented personalized video advertising systems and formats.

    From 1993 to 1998 at Interval Research, Marc led research and development teams in creating patented automatic digital video production technology that automated direction, cinematography, editing, and remixing. In recognition of his thought leadership in multimedia computing, in 1997, Marc was an invited contributor to the 50th Anniversary Edition of the Communications of the ACM, for which he wrote a vision piece about the next 50 years of media technology.

    From 1990 to 1995, Marc did his doctoral work at the MIT Media Laboratory, where he developed Media Streams, an iconic visual language system for annotating, retrieving, and remixing digital video. At the MIT Media Laboratory, Marc Davis also co-founded the Narrative Intelligence Reading Group, which innovated interdisciplinary discourse at the intersection of literary and media theory, artificial intelligence, and media technology and design. In 2003, “Narrative Intelligence” was recognized by the National Academy of Sciences as one of its “promising areas for transdisciplinary work.”

    Marc Davis earned his B.A. in the College of Letters at Wesleyan University, his M.A. in Literary Theory and Philosophy at the University of Konstanz in Germany on a German Academic Exchange Service Fellowship, and his Ph.D. in Media Arts and Sciences at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Media Laboratory.
