Near Enough?3rd near-field communication digital art biennale, #nfcdab
5-12 August,
Tolhuistuin, Amsterdam.
Opening: Sunday 2pm on 05-08-2018

#nfcdab is a do-it-youself or do-it-with-others? digital art biennale that travels on wireless technologies, light waves and electromagnetic fields to access content. The idea of the biennale is to take advantage of the potential of near-field (mis)communication and other sharing technologies for making web-based digital art accessible in outdoors settings to slack-keep presence.

Reading Club  proposes a text and an interpretive arena to 4 readers. These readers write together their reading of a text inside the text itself. The audience sees an evolving, cinematographic picture of thoughts and collaborative writing in the making.

Reading Club is

* an intertextual play and an interpretive arena

* a device to explore reading on the web

* a factory of moving texts

* testing (once more) the status of the author

* a place where the public has a voice

ReadingClub is supported by Dicréam.

qui suis-je? Annie Abrahams (1999) Review, article de Cyril Thomas, Rédacteur en chef de la nouvelle revue trilingue, Transdigital, dédiée aux arts de la scène et aux nouvelles technologies. Il collabore également à diverses revues papier ou sur internet, notamment Ciel Variable, Scènes,, et Patch.

“Je souris, parce que le temps travaille, ne résiste pas, la vérité est relative, ailleurs, là où ça n’existe plus, où on ne parle plus. Le “je ” dans “Qui suis je?” était le site, je l’avais personnalisé ce site, je l’avais fait parler, parce qu’il était menacé par le désaccord, par l’éparpillement, par .. , il était mort peu après … Je te souris. ” Annie à Cyril 01 09 2010.  “Cet article est comme une séance de psychanalyse.”

* Time to relax, to think about writing a book, about continuing Entanglements Trainings and how to develop distributed intelligence, about neural networks and performance and maybe VR. .
