Mobile Tech For Social Change - New York

without comments

Ethan Zuckerman’s opening up the day with a talk via Skype.  His main ideas:

  • We’ve won: mobile phones are being taken seriously
  • Think about connecting mobiles to other media, such as how Ushahidi has done.  FM Radio is still the most powerful broadcast media in much of the world.
  • Think about the user: don’t assume people will use things like you use them.
  • Be willing to be critical of failed projects.
  • Effective projects have a local partner.

Electronic Social Club

without comments

I’m presenting my work on Pigeon to date at the Electronic Social Club on Friday

[ ESC ] salon + mixer*
Electronic Social Club: a network of NYC graduate students connected by the practice of creating social dialogue through projects in media, art and design.

Friday November 14 | 7-10 pm
Hunter College | 695 Park Avenue
Room HN 543 | Black Box

…..new media projects, video art, web-based projects, experimental, interactive, performance, media art, installations, sound projects and games…..

Like a social club, [ ESC ] is formed around a common interest, activity or location.  We bring together MFA students from across New York City to meet and showcase their graduate art work, and to form a common network around the theme of creating social dialogue through art and media.

Programme of events to follow.   Past participants include:  ShiftSpace (shiftspace.org), the ICED Game:  I Can End Deportation (icedgame.com), and projects from Hunter College, NYU ITP, Parsons MFADT, Pratt Institute, Brooklyn PIMA, and Brooklyn Polytech.
