meta_creation lab: inter-actors, attractors and the aesthetics of complexity

A collaborative workshop interfacing movement art practices, digital creativity, portable computation and networked systems.


This workshop is a collaborative lab to creatively explore the contemporary approaches, practices and aesthetics of self organization and of complex systems within the dynamic couplings of mind, body and information/data flows.

This workshop is an open space for experimentation and inquiry within a well defined theoretical/aesthetic frame and open space format: the participants self-organize in different node projects (collaborative and flexible groups) in order to investigate and deploy bottom-up architectures as compositional prototyping strategies and processes. It explores interactivity plus generativity.

An embodied/distributed cognition approach is used to generate physical activities and games, guided discussions/conversations about relevant artists works and concepts exploring the aesthetic of complex systems and emergence.

Open source technologies and methodologies will be explored in combination with composition in real-time.

Inter and trans-disciplinary explorations are encouraged and diversity is the main asset.

Several nodes of research projects are suggested:

Sampling, recombinations and mashups

New Internet technologies (web 2.0) and collaborative creation

Post-pc technologies apps, tablets and mobile technologies

Life logging and creative process

Media Capturing and Real time processing

Bottom-up architectures of generative systems

Hybrid realities and alternative sites

Portable cameras and video production

Online video and video straming

Cloud/social computing

Locative media/Mobile

Performance, rule systems and algorithms.

Computer aided choreography

Portable hardware as interfaces/interactive media control

Social media for distributed creativity and knowledge production

Networked documentaries/storytelling.
