Giving mobile devices a human scale understanding of space and motion

Google’s Project Tango: “to give mobile devices a human scale understanding of space and motion” is exploring how future mobile devices could have the ability to sense 3D-motion and geometry, allowing them to capture 3D-scans of their environment and use the data to create 3D-maps or game environments.

Transpositions: On Nomadic Ethics

Rosie Braidotti’s highly original account of ethical and political subjectivity in contemporary culture. Braidotti makes a strong case for a non-unitary or nomadic conception of the subject, in opposition to the claims of ideologies such as conservatism, liberal individualism and techno-capitalism.

Braidotti, R. Transpositions: On Nomadic Ethics. (2006: 31) [book] Available to buy online: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Transpositions-Nomadic-Ethics-Rosi-Braidotti/dp/0745635962 [Accessed April 2014]

On the unbound book: academic publishing in the age of the infinite archive

“Developments in electronic publishing contain at least the potential for us to perceive the book as something that is not completely fixed, stable and unified, with definite limits and clear material edges, but as liquid and living, open to being continually and collaboratively written, edited, annotated, critiqued, updated, shared, supplemented, revised, re-ordered, reiterated and reimagined. So much so that, as some have indeed suggested, perhaps soon we will no longer call such things books at all, e- or otherwise.”

A bric-a-brac approach to arts & media education!?

“When faced with a broken and out of date methodology, structure and systems, how do we as academics find our purpose, value and relevance within the 21st Century classroom or perhaps a more relevant question should be how would we re-imagine what that classroom could look like.”

Education as a platform: The MOOC experience and what we can do to make it better.

“…’Education as Platform’ is the idea of exploring some of the experiences we’ve had with massive open online learning, and exploring some of the criticisms that we’ve experienced, some of the criticisms that we’ve seen, and trying to understand what elements of the design are working and what elements of the design are not working, and to use this understanding to try to advance our perspective on the way online learning is proceeding and should proceed.”

Reflections on time, motion and photomechanics

“This article is a reflection on my own practice and its connection to changing representations of time and movement within photography. In my work as an artist and photographer, I have endeavoured to develop a particular perspective on the relation between the heritage of photomechanical tools, new technologies, memory and space.”

Welcome to the NEWFOTOSCAPES.

Terminology

Catalyst
The impetus for the NEWFOTOSCAPES encounters, Catalysts are the present questions that occupy each collaborator, having guided their current thinking, research and practice. Catalysts can be filtered by theme allowing the community to navigate through and across each encounter, encouraging intersections of contextual relevance.

Encounter
Pre-publication curated transcripts resulting from each discussion with the NEWFOTOSCAPES collaborators. Encounters can be explored directly or via Catalysts and Antennae.

Antennae
Where might the ideas and questions raised during the NEWFOTOSCAPES encounters lead us in terms of a future artistic and professional practice, what further questions might arise and how might we continue these conversations?
