Syneme Announces Telearts Summer Institute in Calgary
TeleArts: Artists Collaborating Over High Speed Networks
3 Week Summer Workshop Intensive
July 5-23, 2010
University of Calgary
Syneme will hold a ground breaking summer workshop on TeleArts from July 5-23, 2010, at the University of Calgary in Alberta, Canada at the foothills of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. The workshop explores the collaborative potential of mixed media/reality and live performance over high-speed networks using the power of 1 gigabit research networks. Real-time distance collaboration and performance will be the focus of our exploration. Syneme’s Telearts summer workshop aims to attract professional artists and musicians without year-round access to high-speed networks. Attendees will implement projects utilizing Syneme's (and those of our partner's) robust network infrastructure that carries HD video and uncompressed multichannel audio. A major focus of the course is to share ideas/methodologies in progress as related to telearts projects. The workshop will conclude with an international networked, real-time collaborative performance.
Syneme’s partners include the Banff Centre, McGill? and Concordia Montreal, IDC Emily Carr, CEMC and Peking Univ Beijing, NUS Singapore, SARC Belfast, University of Waikata NZ, City University of Hong Kong, Bournemouth UK, and Stanford and Indiana Purdue US.
