MINDtouch: Ephemeral Transferrance - Dec 2010

  1. 1. Camille Baker, MASc Interactive Arts SMARTlab Digital Media Institute PhD Candidate PhD Viva Voce December 15, 2010 MINDtouch: ephemeral transference: ‘Liveness’ in Networked Performance with Mobile Devices
  2. 2. SMARTlab Digital Media Institute PhD: research question –to uncover any new understandings of the sensations and qualities of ‘liveness’ and ‘presence’ that may emerge when using mobile technologies and wearable devices in participatory performance media contexts–

  4. 4. why I did this research (motivation) 1)  to combine my intellectual interests and art practices; 2)  I had a life-long fascination with telepathy and dreams; 3)  to connect research and art in fields of interest previously disconnected; 4)  I had a long interest in using mobile phones in physical performances with video or the network (telematics) 5)  the film by Wim Wenders’ “Until the End of the World” with its dream recorder, as well as other Sci-Fi films featuring videophones 6)  to contribute back something meaningful to ease distance and help people connect in more physical and emotionally felt ways.
  5. 5. BBC R+D sponsored MINDtouch This research was very fortunate to be sponsored by the BBC R+D, with excellent engineers advising the project, especially with the server and streaming video set up and implementation.
