The Social Network for Innovators in Motion
Short interview with Thomas Dumke, director of the Transmedia Akadenie at the Hellerau in Dresden.
He explains the last developments of the European Tele-Plateaus in preparation for their performances from the 3rd to 6th December 2009
Together with partners from Madrid, Norrköping and Prague the project of European Tele-Plateaus – Transnational Sites of Encounter and Co-production (ETP) was launched by TMA on the occasion of CYNETART 2008. The networking of virtual environments, which will be funded by the European Union until 2010 is based on the conceptual and practical activities that TMA have been pursuing for many years. The project aims at creating virtual walk-in sites of sound and vision. By providing a virtual environment these spaces allow sensory-physical interactions over long distances in real-time. The visitors’ physical activities are linked and embedded in a trans-local virtual environment. This is accomplished by the web-based integration of various locally significant sound and image processes. From 3rd until 6th December the up-to-date operational results will be presented to the public in the form of an experimental set-up.
