Developing Apps for iPhone and iPad using openFrameworks
This course will help you develop for the iPhone using the openFrameworks coding toolkit, learning about the different sensors the iPhone has and how to utilize them for interaction design. We will explore audiovisual instruments, or how to create sound and video using interaction from the user and the sensors the iPhone provides. This will be an intuitive way to understand the basics of iPhone programming with openFrameworks, while also learning about audiovisual processing and synthesis for developing creative, interactive applications.
Led by Parag K Mital. http://pkmital.com
Suitable for beginner-level and intermediate programmers who have some familiarity with environments such as
Processing and/or MaxMSP. Course attendees must bring their own device to use in class.
Tuesdays, 31 January – 27 March (excluding 14 February)

“ZEITGEIST, FROM DIGITAL TO POST DIGITAL”
We are all digital
The digital revolution has changed culture, society and business models, driving a fundamental shift in how humans live, communicate and interact. Today digital is everywhere, it means everything. Digital is not new anymore, it has become part of our everyday life without many of us even noticing it. Our culture has fully integrated digital and the internet to the extent that the majority of the rich (or maybe not so rich) countries have access to smartphones and fast broadband connections.
Entering the post-digital age
With this year’s theme, Alpha-ville wants to address the transition from a digital to a post-digital culture, that looks beneath technology at how human behaviours such as collaboration, participation and interaction have redefined the creative practice and society itself, and at how the physical boundaries between reality and online are being blurred. Alpha-ville joins the discourse about post-digital initiated in 1998 by visionary, thinker and founder of the MIT Media Lab, Nicholas Negroponte who pushed the edges of information to predict the future of our culture.

To members of the international digital arts and culture community:
Please consider adding your support and signing this open letter to the Arts Council England regarding their future policies of funding the digital arts and culture. The letter begins:
“This letter, jointly drafted by a constituency of organisations, artists and practitioners who have been engaged in digital arts development in England, concerns digital culture and its importance to the wider UK arts ecology and economy. We the undersigned believe that clear national policies need to be developed to ensure that the UK can remain at the forefront of digital culture, globally, and that these must take account of the key role creative practices play in driving digital innovation.
Whilst we appreciate that digital technologies have created exciting opportunities to engage with audiences, and to disseminate and distribute arts programmes in new ways, it is critical that funders and policy-makers understand that this is not the extent of digital culture. If we are to make the most of the digital opportunity, it needs to be recognised at a national policy level that digital culture is about more than extending the reach of existing arts practices. It is about entirely new forms of production, expression, practice and critical reflection that digital technologies have made possible.”

Marc Interviews Penny Travlou and Irini interviews Karsten Schmidt & Daniel Hirschmann.
Every Wednesday – 7-8pm, Listen live: http://resonancefm.com
This week the tables are turned, and special guest Penny Travlou will be asking Marc Garrett questions about Furtherfield.
Penny Travlou is a cultural geographer and ethnographer and works as Lecturer and Research Fellow at the Edinburgh College of Art. Penny’s research is interdisciplinary with a special interest on the politics of public space, urban critical theory and digital ethnography. As a co-investigator at ELMCIP, Penny conducts an ethnographic study of networked creative communities. At the moment, Penny is doing her fieldwork on Furtherfield, spending time at the Furtherfield Gallery with the current crafters and residency artists (AOS) and setting up interviews with different crew members, crafters and visiting artists. Since ethnography is “a decoding operation”, Penny is learning the language, verbal and symbolic, of the Furtherfield community and, hopefully, to acquire an insider’s perspective.
Karsten Schmidt & Daniel Hirschmann, will be discussing their project ‘Technology Will Save Us’ with Irini Papdimitriou & Jonathan Munro. A haberdashery for technology and alternative education space dedicated to helping people to produce anth d not just consume technology. www.technologywillsaveus.org
