<nettime-ann> SummerLAB 2010 Open Call - New Narratives of Mobility

SummerLAB 2010 Open Call
New Narratives of Mobility
A workshop meeting focused on mobile devices, experimental TV and the production of new narratives. From the 22nd to the 31st of July 2010 at LABoral Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial

Deadline: 16th of July 2010

For the third year running, LABoral Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial is organising SummerLAB, an annual event conceived to bring digital creators together with the purpose of developing collaborative projects. The new introduction this year is the focus on research and development of productions revolving around a specific topic. On this occasion, SummerLAB will be looking at mobility, mobile technologies, experimentation with new data transmission technologies and, finally, how new narratives are traced through these processes.

SummerLAB 2010 explores new forms and models of collaboration between professional digital creators interested in collective and collaborative development and production. During the ten days of this production workshop, artists and creators are invited to develop eight proposals that examine the structures for constructing new narratives. This call makes a special appeal for projects involving mobile phone and similar technologies, projects which offer resources for the community of creators, which contribute ground-breaking solutions in terms of creation and technology, and which have social applications committed with the environment.

As a showcase for SummerLAB, New Narratives will move to the Mediateca Expandida at the end of the year. This space will contain all the projects generated during SummerLAB 2010, as a new line of research included in Mediateca Expandida, a model which combines a 3D documentation space, exhibitions and a prototyping space. Mediateca Expandida opened its doors in Autumn 2009 to showcase cultural projects within a more dynamic environment than conventional exhibitions, somewhere between documentary, demonstrations and the exhibition per se. The New Narratives project will be presented at Mediateca Expandida in Autumn Winter 2010/2011.
