Media Lab Melbourne offers intensive workshops, lectures, exhibition opportunities, local and international networking, plus skill sharing between artists, designers, scientists, couturiers, performers, players, crafters and creatives.
New technologies and electronic media are likely to provide both the causes and solutions to our problems of the future. Understanding their relation to people and culture will be vital for a successful, modern society. As technologies are increasingly absorbed into the fabric of everyday life, the imperative for creative thinkers to address the technological influx from a critical perspective will become paramount.
The Sprints: the events where the the ideas come to life: 8 days of production + 1 day exhibition.
The sprint will begin with a presentation of the theme and of each selected project. Sprints will run over two weekends and the week in between. On the final Sunday each project will be presented and the outcomes discussed. All projects will be documented on the Media Lab Melbourne site. We are open to all manner of collaborations.
Having an enormous lab in the heart of Collingwood with an ever growing number of facilities including laser cutter, 3D printer, 3D scanner, industrial sewing facility, sound booths, electronics and all manner of tools to work with metals and wood.
SPRINT #4 ANTISCREEN
Media Lab Melbourne will be leading an intensive 9 day workshop on unconventional, novel and subverted light imagery techniques. We are looking to break out of the constraints that conventional screens and classic aspect ratio framing bind us. Projection is light transformed into meaning – this is the baseline we will be working from. Unusual projection masks, pinhole cameras, shadow plays, projection mappings, alternative light displays – we are open to any projects within the scope of our proposal. The final day of the Sprint will involve a showcase of projects developed during the period.
Applicants from diverse creative and technical backgrounds are welcome
The Antiscreen sprint will be held between the 21st-29th July, and will launch on Saturday the 21st July at 10:30am.
The venue for the event will be Seventh Gallery – 155 Gertrude Street, Fitzroy.
