1. Eyeo2012 - Jonathan Harris


    from Eyeo Festival // INSTINT Added

    Jonathan talks about some major turning points in his life — things he used to believe that he no longer believes, painful moments that ended up being doorways into something else, highs and lows, and other ways in which life’s topography determines one's art. He relates all this against the backdrop of a desire to humanize the Web and evolve the art of storytelling, touching on insights and principles picked up along the way.

    • Eyeo2012 - Scott Snibbe


      from Eyeo Festival // INSTINT Added

      For twenty years, Scott has advocated for a new form of interactive entertainment that moves beyond video games to treat interactivity as a full medium in its own right. He argues that interactivity has the same potential for emotional impact and engagement as cinema and music. In this talk, Snibbe presents two of his companies’ most powerful interactive experiences from last year, which point to the growing maturity of this medium: Björk’s Biophilia App, the world’s first App Album; and The James Cameron Avatar Experience, a fully immersive gestural interactive exhibition. He discusses these two ends of the interactive spectrum, and the space between: from intimate apps beneath our fingertips, to fully immersive, social exhibitions spanning thousands of square feet.

          from Martin Toft Added 168 0 0

          Atlantus is a transoceanic photography project between Martin Toft and Archisle: the Jersey Contemporary Photography Programme, hosted by the Société Jersiaise Photographic Archive on the Island of Jersey. Prompted in part by the 350th anniversary in 2014 of Sir George Carteret naming of the State of New Jersey, USA after Jersey his island home in 1664, the project asks how two places that share a name on opposite sides of the Atlantic Ocean perceive each other within archives and cultural memory? In five stories responding through image and text to the people, politics, landscapes, industries and identities of these places the Atlantus Project connects memories, archives and imagined lands on opposite side of the Atlantic World. Atlantus is a transoceanic story in which estranged lands of incomparable scale come together in poetic gestures that ask: what’s in a name? Create your own exhibition: Take two of these newspapers and find a wall space that is 2x6 metres in size. Open out both copies, separate the pages and assemble your exhibition following the wall plan in the publication. Or, separate into five smaller sections using the divisions shown on the plan to fit your wall space. Atlantus A Transoceanic Journey Photographs: Martin Toft Text: Gareth Syvret Multi-functional newspaper & DIY exhibition Self-published in collaboration with Archisle: The Jersey Contemporary Photography Programme Design by Kummer & Herrman 80 pages 56 colour and 5 monochrome ills. 5 stories For order visit the Archisle website hosted by the Photographic Archive of the Société Jersiaise www.archisle.org / www.societe-jersiaise.org

              from Anna Masing Added 130 1 0

              Voice over: poem from the text of 'Secrets & stories & un-told tales. A clip of rehearsals and workshop for the piece London, March 2011 with Vera Chok. "Shhhh…. Lean closer, I’ll tell you a secret, the truth about what really happened… The demise of a relationship is a time when you tell ‘a story’, explain the “why”, often before you know yourself. So, you say a line; and then you repeat the line - again and again. Sometimes it becomes something new, sometimes it reinforces an idea, and sometimes you start believing it and somehow, it becomes “the truth”! What is truth? Two women, who look almost the same, who have similar stories, discover an identity of themselves far from their place of childhood and home, far from their mothers ideas of who they were suppose to be, far from the vision that had of themselves, but closer to the women they want to be."

                • WORKSHOP: Story-telling ONE


                  from Anna Masing Added 89 0 2

                  www.fromthejungle.co.uk Story-telling is a performance, it is a technique that crosses many cultures and goes back in time. It is also a technique that performers can react and adapt throughout the performance depending on the reaction of the audience, the immediate feedback they give. With this experiment I want to lengthen the feedback time, so there is room to analyse, develop and understand the reactions. I also want to experiment with placing this ‘age old’ tradition within a very modern context of a virtual environment with modern technology - film and internet. And so in dedication to my ini, I want to tell the story of Apai Aloi’s Hunting Trip. Apai Aloi is a character my grandmother use to tell me about when I was a child. I use to love the stories she would tell about the escapades of Apai Aloi and now my grandmother tells stories about how much I loved those stories! This story is from the book by Clifford Sather (1984), who recorded and translated stories of Apai Aloi told to him by Henry Gerijih anak Jabo of Nanga Samu, Paku
