Extended Arts - XARTS2013
XARTS 2013 Summer School and Conferences tend to apply the new methods for the integration of new media technologies in artistic projects. Using mainly open source software, implementing autonomous environmental systems and advanced embodiment interfaces, artists may design integrated works of art.
Participants in the Summer School have to propose an idea or concept for such an integrative artistic project. During the Summer School the participant's project will evolve to a complete design document including the implementation of a working prototype.
Extending the perception of the artist concerning the new media possibilities, transforming this into creative practice, are the main goals of XARTS 2013. Extending Arts apply to the whole design process. Extending content for instance may be supported by Games narratives, hybrid creative approaches, multimodal interfaces, Immersive User Experience, Open Source coding, Strategic networking with the public and the artistic community.
Participants will split in groups of 4-5 persons in order to design and implement collective works during intensive workshops. The groups will be formed after presentation and analysis of the proposed concepts during the Groups formation workshop.
The “University of the Aegean Summer Schools” are supported by the project «The University of the Aegean, the prominent and driving factor for the economic and social growth of the wide Aegean area» of the Operational Programme “Education and Lifelong Learning”, which is co-funded by European Union (European Social Fund) and National Resources.
