Dear MM-Interest Members,

I would like to invite you to an arts & enginering festival in Oslo,  
Norway. The style of this event differs from usual academic workshops  
and conferences. The festival features tutorials on visual programming  
toolkits and artistic use of video and motion capturing technology as  
well as experimental workshops where researchers and performing  
artists can get in direct contact. See the call for participation below.

All the best
Alexander Eichhorn

            A Festival for Live and Interactive Art & Technology

                              May 10 - 13 2010
                                Oslo, Norway



Art.on.Wires is an open laboratory for live and interactive art where
researchers, engineers and practitioneers from various fields  
to explore and create a new generation of media technologies for  
performances and mixed-reality spaces.

The Art.on.Wires festival will take place at Kanonhallen, an old  
building in Oslo. The four-day event will feature presentations from  
and researchers, workshops on artistic programming tools, podium  
and a vibrant yet cosy working environment with much space for  
and experimentation. During the evenings the general public is invited  
visit us for experimental arts performances. Kanonhallen has a 50m x 15m
hall where we will set up two experimental stages with cameras,  
display surfaces, motion sensors, sound and light equipment from our
research labs. Everything will be connected to a fast networking  
backbone to
share video, sound, motion and other sensor data between all  

We invite choreographers, dancers, singers, actors, musicians,  
DJs, VJs, visual artists, programmers, set designers, light engineers,  
engineers and other interested artists and engineers to join our  
Art.on.Wires provides an environment for scientific and artistic  
for experimentation and performing, for discussion and reflection. The
success of the symposium relies on the spirit and ideas of all our
participants. Everyone is important and everyone is encouraged to  
bring and
connect computers and other equipment, to share and use real-time  
data, to
learn and to explore new directions.

- keynote talks by Mark Coniglio and Atau Tanaka
- dorkbot presentations
- workshops on artistic programming toolkits, technology and performance
- plenary discussions
- concerts and performances

The main topics are Space and Interaction. Artistically we are  
in interactions with smart performance spaces and interactions between
people in remote networked performance spaces. On the engineering side
issues of interest are the integration of Vision, Sound and Motion  
into a local space to enable remote and mixed-reality interactions. In
particular we like to:

- learn how to integrate audiovisual spaces, projection environments and
motion sensing for natural remote interactions between humans
- re-think the concept of physical space when merging local with  
remote reality
- re-define the concepts of site and location for networked performances
- investigate the notion of dis-location, re-location and remote  
between artists and audience(s)

- OpenFrameworks (Arturo Castro)
- Motion Capture Systems and Techniques (Alexander Refsum Jensenius)
- BoBo – Gadgetto (DAAL/DKIA)
- Playful Spaces (DAAL/DKIA)
- Isadora – Advanced Features Quick Boot (Mark Coniglio)
- Using Interactive Environments for Performance
- Dance Track (Johanna Roggan)
- Visuals Track, VVVV (Marko Ritter)
- Music Track, Ableton Live (Kacob Korn)
- Telematic Interaction (Alexander Carôt)

Artistic Scholarships

We offer 10 scholarships in the form of a free festival pass to selected
artists. To apply for a scholarship, send a one page PDF file with a  
description of your idea/concept for an interactive performance or an
interactive installation to echa [at] simula [dot] no. Use 'Art.on.Wires
Artistic Scholarship' as the email subject. Application deadline is  
April 25th. The organisers will then select the 10 best ideas. Selection
criteria are originality of your proposal, relevance of your idea for  
the main
topic, maturity of your concept and presentation quality. A link to an
accompanying video which further describes your idea or shows some of  
related work is appreciated. Artists receiving a scholarship will get  
chance to develop their piece together with the artistic instructors and
engineers at Art.on.Wires and present the work at the Wednesday evening
performance and the OpenLaboratory event in Thursday.
