A Laboratory for Live and Interactive Art & Technology
May 10 – 13 2010, all day 10.00 – 23.00 Kanonhallen, Oslo, Norway
We will perform two workshops in cooperation with DKIA at the Art.on.Wires Festival in Oslo, Norway: BoBo –Gadgetto & Playful Spaces. At the BoBo – Gadgetto workshop, we will build a wearable and interactive LED display. At Playful Spaces we will toy with the constraints & resources of gadgetry and modify it for some “artistic” purpose.
Visit the Festival Page- there’s lots of nice & interesting stuff.
If you’re interested in participating in one of the upcoming workshops, you need to register here.
“Art.on.Wires is an open laboratory for live and interactive art where researchers, engineers and practitioneers from various fields collaborate to explore and create a new generation of media technology for artistic performances and mixed-reality spaces.
We invite choreographers, dancers, singers, actors, musicians, composers, DJs, VJs, visual artists, programmers, set designers, light engineers, sound engineers and interested researchers to join our laboratory. The four-day event will feature workshops on artistic programming tools and interactive technologies, dorkbot talks and experimental performances. Art.on.Wires takes place in an old industry hall which will be equipped with interactive technologies to serve as a space for artistic and scientific experimentation.
Our main topics are Space and Interaction. Artistically we are interested in interactions with smart performance spaces and interactions between people in remote networked performance spaces. On the engineering side issues of interest are the integration of Vision, Sound and Motion technologies into a local space to enable remote and mixed-reality interactions.”

The evening is open to everyone and there is no entrance fee. Talks are strictly limited to 10min and 2min for questions afterwards. Talks must be registered on-site between 18h00 and 19h45 on Monday 10th.
