Workshop #1: FAKE IT! Self-Dramatization in Art and on Social Media

Have you got an interest in self-dramatization in front of the camera and in toying with “fake” and fiction on social media and in art? Are you fascinated by how artists and influencers present themselves in front of the camera and on social media and how actors constantly reinvent themselves for their roles?

Then this workshop is the ideal opportunity to learn about different dramatization strategies and techniques and subsequently try them out for yourselves in the form of individual “fake reality” projects.

Info: Please bring a smartphone or tablet to the workshop. In addition, a photo camera can also be taken along.

Bernadette Anzengruber is a visual artist working with photography, video, performance, and objects, among other things. Topics she deals with include identity attributions, extraneous and self-dramatization through media, intimacy, the eroticism of commodities, and the corporeality of language.

Learn a few classic animation principles and create transitions between various objects of your choice using animation techniques individually or as a team. After a short introduction to the theoretical background, you will be able to turn blank paper into a little piece of moving image magic.

Workshop #3: Coding for the Interactive DeepSpace

DeepSpace is a big room in the Ars Electronica Center that hosts a floor and wall projection. It is also equipped with laser tracking, which enables the positions of users to be determined.

In this workshop, we will take a look behind the scenes with the help of Studio1 at the University of Art and Design Linz and explore how these rooms work. Using the programming environment Processing, we will also develop our own little programs.

Holunder Heiß studied Digital Arts at the University of Applied Arts Vienna. He has dedicated himself to interactive media art as an artist, programmer/technician and teacher since 2010 and has been an employee at the Department of Time-based and Interactive Media Arts of the University of Art and Design Linz since 2016.

Details: DeepSpace works developed as part of Gerhard Funk und Holunder Heiß’s course and the 
processing programming environment.

Workshop #4: Studio to Go: Multi-Cam Live Streaming with Smartphones and Laptop

Decent processing power and connectivity make smartphones the Swiss army knife of video production.
In this workshop, we will broadcast a live stream on YouTube with our smartphones, GoPros, and a drone. For the live editing, we will use simply a laptop with Open Broadcast Studio. Participants will get acquainted with the studio software OBS and will receive an introduction on how they can easily recreate the workshop set-up themselves.
