Project development and production advenced workshop
Advanced workshop for the collaborative development of 10 projects of digital and sound art, critical design, educational applications, etc.
Dates: from the 18th to the 30th of April 2006.
(1974, Zaragoza, Spain) MSc. in Telecommunications Engineering. In 2000 he developed The Wake Interactive, a net.art project consisting of a web version to Finnegans' Wake - the clasic by James Joyce- wich brought him to K3, the School of Arts and Communication located in Malmö, Sweden. Since August 2002 he also became a PhD Student and researcher dealing with the boundaries between Interaction Design and Art. His academic work focuses in analyzing embodiment, indoor location systems and technologies for real time performances. His artistic work, mainly low-fi interventions parodying his own field of research, brought him to the 8th Istanbul International Biennale in 2003, and to the 3rd Berlin Biennale during 2004. David is the founder of several initiatives: the Critical Design group Aeswad - active since 2002, the Labbs.net community - online since the summer 2002, the Digital Arts Collective Desearch and Revelopment - active since August 2003, the Experiments in Art and Technology SWEden/DENmark group - active since September 2003, and the media server Goldiaq - online since December 2004. He has developed the Arduino board (an open hardware tool) together with Massimo Banzi.
(USA) work uses technology in a playful and enigmatic way to explore the nature of communication and the delicate boundary between the visible and the invisible. He creates performances, installations, and on-line works that investigate gestural input, augmentation of the body, and kinetic response.
Working with collaborator Golan Levin, he created a series of installations - Remark and Hidden Worlds - which presented different interpretations of what the voice might look like if we could see our own speech. These were followed with Messa Di Voce, a concert performance in which the speech, shouts and songs of two abstract vocalists were radically augmented in real-time by interactive visualization software. The collaborators were recently nominated for Wired magazine's artist of the year award and have toured and exhibited their works widely, much to the delight of their audiences.
Lieberman has held artist residencies at Ars Electronica Futurelab, Eyebeam, and most recently at Dance Theatre Workshop, where he investigated how technology might be used to aid the choreographic process.
is an artist and educator exploring abstract kinetic systems through diverse media. Reas has exhibited and lectured in Europe, Asia, and the United States and his work has recently been shown at Ars Electronica (Linz), Kuenstlerhaus (Vienna), P.S.1 (Queens), Bitforms (New York), Chromosome (Berlin), and Uijeongbu City (Korea). Reas is currently an Assistant Professor in the Design | Media Arts department at UCLA. Reas received his MS degree in Media Arts and Sciences from MIT where he was a member of John Maeda\'s Aesthetics and Computation Group. With Ben Fry, he is currently developing Processing, a programming language and environment built for the electronic arts community.
Fusing three disciplines, Hans-Christoph Steiner spends his time composing music with computers, building networks with free software, and working on interactive art. With an emphasis on collaboration, he has worked in many forms, including responsive sound environments, free, wireless networks that help build community, musical robots that listen, and interactive sculpture using homemade jets.
His solo work has been performed at Tonic New York, inside the Croton Aqueduct, and inside the Atlantic Avenue Tunnel. Group projects that he has collaborated on have been exhibited at Lille2004 European Cultural Capitol Festival, Robodock, Wood Street Gallery, Joyce SOHO, and Scope Art Fair. He has given talks at ITP/NYU, LocationOne, Tama Art University, Geidai Tokyo National University, and dorkbot-nyc, presenting a range of topics from art projects to music programming to intellectual property. His work has been covered by the New York Times, Wired News, New York Press. Steiner received his Masters from NYU's Interactive Telecommunications Program.
He is currently working on free, open-source media arts curricula and teachers\' guides and turning Pd into a full-fledged programming platform.

¿Interactivos? proposes to transform the exhibition space into a place where to share experiences, acquire knowledge and debate ideas. Through an exhibition, workshops and presentations, the public will approach new forms of production and will experience the uses of electronics and programming for educative and creative purposes.
Interactives? is a hybrid between a workshop and an exhibition. Through a colaborative development of 10 projects of digital art, sound art, critic design and educational applications, Interactives proposes to transform the exhibiting space in an place for production, debate and communication open to the public.
From 18th to 30th April
Advanced workshop for the developing of digital art, sound art, critic design or educational applications that use interactive technologies inscribed inside open hardware and free software philosophy.
29th April: final presentation of projects
5th and 6th of May
Processing Seminar by Casey Reas
From 8th to 20th May
Workshop aimed at secondary education teachers and students from the technology area and test the possibilities of the open hardware Arduino board at this educational stage. Directed by David Cuartielles (Arduino developer) and Juan Carlos Alonso (technology teacher at ESO). With the support of the Consejería de Educación de la Comunidad de Madrid.
22nd of April: Open Debate
from 10:30 to 14:30 and from 17:00 to 20:30
This debate raises a questioning and a reformulation of the idea of “interactivity” in a conceptual, technological, biological and social level.
