"Mobile Art && Code" is a symposium on the aesthetic and tactical technologies of mobile phones and networked media. An all-day series of lecture presentations will be held on Saturday, November 7. The lectures are free and open to the public.
Lecturers include Memo Akten, MSA Visuals in the United Kingdom; Julian Bleecker, Near Future Laboratory; Tad Hirsch, Intel; David Evans, Deeplocal; Golan Levin, symposium director and the director of the STUDIO for Creative Inquiry and many more artists and technologists.
Presentations will focus the ideas and techniques behind mobile and networked media through a variety of contemporary critical, artistic and design practices; topics include mobile audio vision and interaction, mobility and invention.
The three-day event also features intimate, practical, arts-oriented programming workshops for popular mobile platforms such as the iPhone, Android, Nokia Smartphones, Arduino, SMS and Asterisk PBX systems. Lectures and workshops are presented by a wide-range of world-class innovators in the artistic, tactical, commercial and social uses of these new technologies.
"Mobile Art && Code" is made possible by a grant from Microsoft Research, with oversight by the Center for Computational Thinking at Carnegie Mellon.
