hello: Invitation to register for Urban Play Space Seminar, Melb.au
field of play

FIELD OF PLAY ::: gameplay in urban art

Digital Harbour will host a seminar on the intersection between
location based gaming and public art to coincide with the launch of Field of Play, a new public art project by Troy Innocent.

The line between the virtual and the real is no longer clear. We now live in a mixed reality of ubiquitous media that is embedded in the world around us. This is reflected in recent developments in gaming that situate play within urban spaces using mobile phones or take a crossmedia approach that blends online, public and mobile spaces.

Join us for a discussion on gaming in public space. Speakers include: Troy Innocent, Monash University; Darren Tofts, Swinburne University; Helen Stuckey, ACMI and Rebecca Cannon, Select Parks.

Tuesday April 17th ::: 6-8pm
Digital Harbour: The Innovation Building, 1010 Latrobe Street,
Docklands, Melbourne, Australia
Please register before Friday 13th April.

hello: Medi@terra 06: 'Gaming Realities'

In less than a month Gaming Realities, one of the biggest festivals to date encompassing the critical exploration of videogames in the fine arts and humanties, kicks off in Athens. The festival hosts a great line up of artists and speakers, many of which we've covered or archived here at Selectparks over the years (Blast Theory, Sir Frasca, Darwinia, Eastwood Group, Molleindustria and many more). I'll be there, so if you're at the festival come to my keynote and ask some impossibly difficult questions when I least expect it. Cheers!

Read on for the comprehensive press release and exhbition details.

From March 15 - 25, 2006 Workspace Unlimited presents Breaking the Game Symposium, a first-iteration online event that brings together competing theorists and practitioners to debate and reflect on virtual worlds, computer gaming, immersive technologies, and new possibilities for artistic practice and experience. The symposium will open up the art of game modification to the contingencies of everyday life, where interactive technologies increasingly mediate physical spaces and human movements in very complex and dynamic ways. The symposium themes are: Hybridity, Overclocking the City and The Virtual as Interface to Self and Society.

Participants will consider gaming and other virtual technologies in relationship to building and designing cities, navigating and experiencing urban life, constructing identities, and creating and maintaining social interaction. The symposium encourages debate and discussion through multiple formats including text, video interviews, phone blogging, images, animation, and virtual walkthroughs.

For detailed information about the symposium please visit the Breaking the game website at: www.workspace-unlimited.org/breakingthegame

theory: Tansmediale: Blame the music
ouch.. In a display of rampant silliness I completely missed the Game conference. This was due to the fine work of audio artist Rotator, who had me forgetting my name and several other things the night before.

Nonetheless Tansmediale itself was very worthwhile, providing one of the rare opportunities to see game-based works like Pong Mechanik, the larger-than-virtual ////Furminator, and the delicate landscapes of Vladimir Todorovic.

Less on a strictly game-related note I was really taken with Gravicells by Seiko Mikami and Sota Ichikawa. This peice used a large pressure-sensitive floor that provided control data to render a topological relationship between other users in huge graph-like structure projected onto the wall. Not unlike the N-Dimensional navigational systems described by sci-fi author Greg Egan and the graphing technology we saw in Final Fantasy (the film).

theory: Tjena from Piksel
I'm currently in Bergen, Norway, at the Piksel festival, well not really a festival so much as a compile-fest; laptops, buckets of bandwidth and the sharing of fine open-source warez. While the focus is certainly not games, there's alot happening here in the way of developing applications that extend beyond what proprietary 3D and interactivity platforms offer.

pix and I presented fijuu at the local museum alongside a bunch of exceptional work playing here every night. Too much to catch up on right now (OpenGL matrix transformation coming out my ears) so I'll sign off and work on a write up over the next couple of days.
