Lecture Lila Chitayat “spatial storytelling and how to play with time in space” 23.5.

Lila Chitayat – a multidisciplinary creator, architect, new-media artist and experimental designer in Israel and Germany – examines shifts occuring in the past decades: How do we rethink space and what are its affects on how we read spaces today?
Using our bodies, movement and multiple realities we can play with time, slow it down or open up gaps to experience spaces and tell stories through them. By the extensive use of new technologies, virtual worlds and multiple dimensions we can now shift out to non euclediean geometries, interactivity and non- linear storytelling, triggering us to be in a space, be the space and playfully experience it.

Lecture: Interactive media in performance

Mark Coniglio – Media artist, composer and programmer Mark Coniglio is widely considered to be a pioneering force in the exploration of dance and interactive media. Beginning with Troika Ranch, the media intensive dance company he co-founded with Dawn Stoppiello, and later as the creator of the media software Isadora, he has spent nearly three decades enmeshed in the relationship of movement, media, and computing.

Coniglio’s early dance and technology work – where sensory systems, responsive media software and live performers combined to produce an interactive “reflection” of the body – has evolved into an approach where technology actively intervened in the creation, rehearsal and performance of movement. After reflecting on his past work, he will propose future interventions where artificial intelligence will be placed into conflict with human bodily knowledge, to provoke the invention of new movement, unforeseen structures, and compelling relationships between the body, media and the stage.

The lecture is hold in english.

Seminar on Spacial Theory

Seminar on Spacial Theory

In this seminar we will critically assess our current understanding of space in accordance with relevant theoretical core texts, research and publications and in relation to recent realisations. Our aim is to give students and guests an overview of existing theories, to help put them in context and encourage debate. The seminar can be seen as an introduction to the scientific work methods required throughout the degree course. Students are invited to regard their own approaches in a theoretic context and decide which concepts are relevant to their own work.

Guests are welcome!

Tutor: Prof. Albert Lang
