[PRE_TURN*ON] Sharing-identity interface

Wednesday, October 14, 2009, 1 pm to 4 pm

Co-presented with Artivistic

Martine Neddam will give a workshop on shared identity interfaces that allow for the participative creation of virtual characters. She will use the now infamous Mouchette site [http://mouchette.org] as a case in point. The virtual character together with the materiality, sensuality, participatory nature of the site situate the workshop amongst key issues that will be addressed during TUNR*ON. The participants of the workshop will be encouraged to use their own images and narratives as they learn how to navigate new technological platforms and contribute to the ongoing creation of this virtual character.

No specific experience is necessary, but participants must bring their own laptops as well as some visual and narrative material they would like to work with during the workshop. If you have any questions in this regard, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Space limited.

Martine Neddam

Martine Neddam is an artist who uses language as raw material. Since she began as an artist her favorites subjects always were ‘speech acts’, modes of address, words in the public space. Since 1988 she exposed text objects (banners, plaques, shadows on the wall) in museums and galleries. She also realized many large scale public commissions in several european countries : Netherlands, France, Great Britain. Since 1996 she created on internet virtual characters who lead an autonomous artistic existence in which the real author is never disclosed. Martine Neddam is also also teacher at the Rietveld academy in Amsterdam (where she lives since 1994). She also regularly teaches as professor in the University of Quebec in Montreal (UQAM) in Visual and Media Arts.
