A program of short stories that would never have existed without the internet.
Live: The Age of the Interface
A live cinema celebration of storytelling the age of the interface. With internet pioneers Vincent Morisset and Moniker, cardboard interfaces, connected smartphones, interactive music videos and an edible camera. Part of Interactive Reality organized with De Brakke Grond.
How do interactive artists and storytellers confront the incredible pace at which digital technology is evolving and new ways in which audiences can interact with their works? Innovation is not about being the first to use a new technology – it’s about using it in unexpected, appealing and meaningful ways. Few have been able to do this as well as the Canadian new media artist Vincent Morisset. In the final live cinema event of the Interactive Reality program, Morisset reflects on current trends and showcases some of his most amazing works live – from his flat (but interactive) 3D film Colorblind Clyde to his latest collaboration with Google and Aaron Koblin Just a Reflektor. Morisset is joined onstage by likeminded artists and experts, including Jason Brush (interaction designer and teacher at UCLA), the Dutch collective Moniker (who present Do Not Touch, their celebration of the computer mouse) and new media artist Jo Caimo, who eats a camera. The event takes place on November 26 at 8:00p.m. at De Brakke Grond.
