WinterLAB 2016. An encounter on community and the use of technology

18th to 20th november 2016

After last year’s encounter on digital fabrication and Culture-Maker, this year we propose to draw attention to new methods of audiovisual creation and production in the same way, also founded on DIY philosophy, and within the framework of the European Network for Contemporary Audiovisual Creation (ENCAC) which is headed by LABoral and LEV festival as strategic partner.

The programme of conferences and round tables aims to make a critical analysis of recent work and to consider what the next steps will be for the diffusion of these new ways and practices of making and sharing.

The practical workshops seek to increase the knowledge of a wide audience about the languages and proposals of artistic creation and, at the same time, to offer to professionals the open code tools and techniques applicable to their own creative projects.

Registration: the activities are open and free-of-charge.

Dates: Friday 18th, Saturday 19th, and Sunday 20th November, 2016, to coincide with the opening of the exhibition Monsters of the Machine as part of the European Digital Art and Science Network (EDASN) project.

Mari Matsutoya will present the project (a character originally created and © Crypton Future Media, INC.), showing the extent to which she has been appropriated and morphed, deconstructing the perfect pop star and demonstrating that Miku is simply an empty vessel onto which we project our own various fantasies.
