The Multiplicities discussion focuses on connective + collaborative  
New Media + Digital Arts praxis in the context of internationalized  
efforts such as Ryan Griffis' The Temporary Travel Office, Rob Ray's  
initiation + running of dorkbot Chicago + Lincoln Schatz's  
development of The Upgrade! Chicago. The Temporary Travel Office,  
dorkbot Chicago + The Upgrade! Chicago are all effort to organize  
platforms or networks of New Media + Digital Arts praxis that  
foreground collaborations, sharing + international connectivities. As  
platforms, these systems act as connection points or hubs in an  
emerging + growing network of artistic activities.

4 PM - 6 PM
Connectivities

Annette Barbier (UNREAL-ESTATES and Interactive Arts and Media  
Department Columbia College)
Mark Hansen (Professor in English Language & Literature, Cinema &  
Media Studies; University of Chicago)
Lynn Marie Kirby (California College of the Arts)

The Connectivities discussion directs our attention to New Media +  
Digital Arts projects that traverse multiple histories, theories +  
practices such as Annette Barbier's UNREAL-ESTATES, Mark Hansen's New  
Philosophy for New Media + Lynn Marie Kirby's Latent Light  
Excavations. Annette Barbier's collaborative works such as Path of  
the Dragon are playable New Media experiences that tell poetic +  
alternative histories of specific places. Mark Hansen's theoretical  
work on the multiple connections between + departures from  
philosophic traditions in New Media art emphasizes lived experiences  
+ embodiment rather than mechanical metaphors for technology. Lynn  
Marie Kirby's Latent Light Excavations operate out of a poetics of  
space as well as an interest in digital processing  + recording  
technologies to remember + reconnect to specific locations. Together  
these projects present varying takes on poetic + philosophic  
connections between specific human experiences of New Media.
