Media Fabrics for Media Makers

Lecture at Camerimage

I was invited by MEDIA and WRO to give a lecture at a conference entitled « Soft Machines and the Cinematographic Imaginary ».

The conference took place during the prestigious Camerimage festival, in Łødź, in the presence of great figures of today’s cinema like Roman Polanski and Harris Savides (cinematographer for most of Gus Van Sant’s films), under the patronage of David Lynch, who has his recording studios in that region of Poland.

My contribution to the WRO Media Art Reader (which I could not finish in time when the book went to press) has been made available on this web site.

Talk at UdK

I gave a talk at the Universität der Kunste in Berlin, to the students of Joachim Sauter, in the Experimental Media Design program.

Interactive political films

I gave a workshop on how to make interactive political films at Mediamatic with Florian Thalhofer and his Korsakow authoring tool, to a very interesting range of participants (all filmmakers) who had come with their own footage. The final presentations took place at a local film school in Amsterdam.

I also gave a talk at De Balie about video games and non-violence, during the International Documentary Film Festival (IDFA), on a panel with Joost Raessens & Brody Condon.

A reader was put together by Mediamatic.
