Turning Social Media into Creative Media
Digital technologies have changed the way we interact with the world in ways not thought possible ten years ago. We want to change it again by using social media as a tool to interpret content as part of a creative process which produces a performance.
This is a collaborative workshop exploring the creative potential of art practices, movement, social media, and digital communication using portable computers, 3G phones, tablets and networked systems. The workshop is aimed at those who wish to acquaint themselves with new creative and performative interconnected tools.
This workshop provides an introduction in how to creatively explore some of the current approaches, practices and aesthetics in connecting the artists mind, body information/data flow with a multitude of platforms (including social media, Qr codes, streaming, Google Maps etc).
Participants will work together to explore the various possibilities for cross platform work and how it can exist on an aesthetic/theoretical/audience level. Participants will come with their own knowledge and experience of technology (beginners welcome) and IJAD will provide the extra knowledge needed to get the most out of the workshop.
We also want to create and test new models of communication between artists and their audiences to help increase the transparency of your work.
