Mediamatic Salon


Nir Nadler and Chris O'Shea

Mediamatic Salon :: Monday, November 13 at 20.30 hrs :: Presentations by Nir Nadler and Chris O'Shea, and the results of the Machinima Contest 2006 :: Location: Bar-Restaurant 11, Post CS Gebouw, Oosterdokskade 5, Amsterdam.

Chris O'Shea (London) constructs models of interaction that borrow from TOY design and video GAMES, to create play situations within virtual environments and in tangible devices. He will present a series of projects that begin to explore synaesthesia, the fusion of sound and visuals, through gaming devices, open source processes and interactive soundscapes.

Klaas Kuitenbrouwer shows the QUIRKIEST results of the Machinima Competition that mediamatic organised with VIRMA and the Holland Animation Film Festival. Contestants had to make a machinima about a recent news event in one week only. In his presentation Klaas explores what it is that makes machinima interesting.

Nir Nadler and Chaja Hertog portray prototypes of cultural identities and ICONIC figures through variable mediums. Some of these identities are applied onto a self-published newspaper: The Monograph, where the personality Norbert Nadler plays a central role. It is a man without character that uses all means to approach everyone. Norbert travels through the imaginary world like a CHAMELEON taking on every identity he desires, he exists only because of the media and coincided with it.
