Mediamatic Salon
Monday, November 13 at 20.30 hrs

Presentations by Nir Nadler and Chris O'Shea, and the results of the 
Machinima Contest 2006.

Chris O'Shea (London) constructs models of interaction that borrow from 
TOY design and video GAMES, to create play situations within virtual 
environments and in tangible devices. He will present a series of 
projects that begin to explore synaesthesia, the fusion of sound and 
visuals, through gaming devices, open source processes and interactive 
soundscapes. http://www.chrisoshea.org

Klaas Kuitenbrouwer shows the QUIRKIEST results of the Machinima 
Competition that mediamatic organised with VIRMA and the Holland 
Animation Film Festival. Contestants had to make a  machinima about a 
recent news event in one week only. In his presentation Klaas explores 
what it is that makes machinima interesting.

Nir Nadler and Chaja Hertog portray prototypes of cultural identities 
and ICONIC figures through variable mediums. Some of these identities 
are applied onto a self-published newspaper: The Monograph, where the 
personality Norbert Nadler plays a central role. It is a man without 
character that uses all means to approach everyone. Norbert travels 
through the imaginary world like a CHAMELEON taking on every identity he 
desires, he exists only because of the media and coincided with it.


Location: Bar-Restaurant 11, Post CS Gebouw, Oosterdokskade 5, Amsterdam
