"Online Panel: Experimental publishing and alternative networked cultures

Convened by Ruth Blacksell and Lozana Rossenova with contributions from Karen Di Franco, Aymeric Mansoux, Marcell Mars, Tomislav Medak.

The emergence of experimental post-digital publishing over the past decade has opened up new modes and methods of design practice that have allowed for extended relationships between social and media environments. This panel discussion draws on historical as well as contemporary references to examine such approaches through a range of perspectives, spanning the fields of art, graphic design, digital media and software development. The projects and practices discussed in the presentations and subsequent Q&A will consider the shift away from fixed to more fluid forms of publication and acts of publishing that are contingent upon networked, interactive and hybrid (digital/analog) contexts."

Arnaud, Chun, Dustin, @l03s and myself got interviewed about our game/project What Remains in the VGS forum, as part of scrobins' A Homebrew Draws Near! blog series. Was super fun to write this together :D

Two days ago I was also invited by David Young of Royal Holloway University London to talk about the project. It was a very good chat (thanks to the input from Olga Goriunova, Alfie Bown, David and his students of course) on the relationship between video and .

Hi hi!

Time for a 'lil . My name is Silvio, I'm Italian but I live in the Netherlands. In the past I researched artistic "post-digital" publishing, I wrote about the entrepreneurial ideology in relation to precarity, and did a lot of other stuff such as graphic design, web development, installations, net art, zines, weird tools, videoclips… I'm starting to suspect that consistency is not among my core skills :oh_no_bubble:

Right now I'm mostly busy documenting and understanding a sense of disillusionment that seems to permeate the design field.

Currently, I'm an assistant professor in design theory and criticism at the Center for Other Worlds in Lisbon (otherworlds.pt/) and I'm part of varia.zone, a lovely space dedicated to everyday technology.

I toot mostly about , , and . Also, I enjoy posting "unacceptable" CW puns.

While writing about the past and the present of computer usership, I amassed a mastodontic year-long thread. That was fun :) post.lurk.org/web/statuses/105

"A Fair New Idea?! - Working digitally in the arts field

A strong, fair and sustainable arts field during and post corona will need to address the impact of digital technology.

Digital is part of our daily lives, interacting with our physical, mental and emotional states. Together, these states make up the world we inhabit and impact the ways we produce and experience culture.

From this holistic perspective, Flanders Arts Institute () is looking for people that call the status quo into question and suggest possible or alternative ways to work digitally in the arts.

Flanders Arts Institute is providing a total of 12,000 euros to one or more working groups that want to develop (a) specific idea(s) for up to 1 year. How this budget will be allocated, will depend on the proposals received and selected by the jury. A fair distinction will be made between participants with a fixed income and those working on a freelance or independent basis.

Ideas should strive to have an impact on working digitally in the in and ."

What to do when a crappy phone screen replacement pretends to be another screen and therefore does not understand the commands it receives? Well, you make your own build. It sucks but it works (also thankful that dev docs and toolchains are so good that it was actually quite straightforward to do).

somehow, http://scanlines.xyz (the web forum focused on diy a/v that i started with @cyberboy666 @andrei_jay and @ojack) has been around for nearly a year already! we are having a stream of a/v works by the community to celebrate.

For those interested in NES and archiving (I know, exotic combo), there is this interview/quiz me and @320x200 wrote a few years back, that we have received a question about: in which category do people who took the quiz usually fall?

We don't know (it's not a datamining operation), but we are curious :breadthink: If you did take the quiz and still remember, we'd love to hear! If you are an archivist and NES aficionado and can't wait to take the quiz, we'd also love to know your score 😍
