Hello Fellow Dorkboters!
We are in our second last Dorkbot of the 2014-2015 season before your tireless organizer Jen Chan has to do something about her expatriate visa status! (Our fantastic event hoster/co-organizer Josh will still be around, and is open to cool new media event ideas like these as usual)
Please gear up for our final Dorkbot in May— WE ARE PLANNING ON A FREE-FOR-ALL, ROUND ROBIN TYPE EVENT where everyone talks about a piece of their work for 10 minutes in a circle. It’ll be like speed dating for new media artists!
PLEASE don’t be shy and email with your interest in participating, and what equipment you’re bringing. All skill levels welcome!
But as of this month, we are excited to present the brand new new media band Adventure Monday on Tuesday March 24 at 7pm at Catalyze Chicago (650 W. Lake St. Suite #2. Closest stop Clinton Green station)
Bored of seapunk? Hate jam bands? Need to bring a date or a new friend to something hip and new, but don’t exactly want to talk?
Adventure Monday are new media artists/organizers/realtime-perfomers Paula Nacif, Kevin Carey and Christine Janokowicz.
Adventure Monday is an eclipsing phantasy, from AM to PM the pH level remains acidic, a dejavuic reverie that you take through an empty Rain Forest Cafe, a deserted thrift store in the middle of a dessert like the one you ate last night or the taco joint down the street. Shaped by postcampist approaches to exploration, they sync their devices to any geolocation they step on, constructing a meta narrative with all the bars, no matter their wifi signal. #live #realtime #audiovisual #mashup #remix #lecture #graphics #newmedia http://adventuremonday.rocks
Christine will talk about her explorations in programming visuals in Max/MSP/Jitter and her interest in the intersection and interchange of sound and visuals working together to create a synesthetic experience.
Kevin will talk about the transition of his focus in moving image to sound, the translation of sound as a visual medium, and the environments and spaces these mediums inhabit.
Paula will talk about instructions, misinterpretations, mistranslations and transcriptions: text as illustration, drawing as subtitle, speech as performance, and archive as reproduction.
