[Nettime-ro] Live Presentation at Homo Futuris event

> Lecture by Thomas
> Soetens and Kora Van den Bulcke at Homo Futuris. Sept. 27
> Live stream available from 21:00 local time at:
> www.workspace-unlimited.org/implant/streamwindow.htm
> Vooruit Kunstencentrum, Sint-Pietersnieuwstraat 23, 9000 Gent, Belgium
> Sept. 27 at 21:00 - 22:00 Domzaal
> Homo Futuris: the influence of science & technology on tomorrows life. Homo
> futuris is a collaboration between Unesco and Vooruit Kunstencentrum. For
> more information about Homo Futuris visit: www.vooruit.be
> During this lecture we will present a walk through of IMPLANT and the Common
> Grounds Network and discuss how these projects connect to "The Virtual as
> interface to Self and Society".
> Self-presence is a key concept and goal in the construction of many virtual
> environments. We will discuss the various means by which presence is achieved
> in IMPLANT and throughout the Common Grounds Network (Workspace Unlimited).
> We will look specifically at how our virtual environments allow viewers to
> shift points of view at will, and control and manipulate their own
> perspectives by occupying, exploring, and traversing virtual space. Does this
> freedom of movement become the defining quality of the virtual self? (Bolter)
> How do we further complicate this by creating contexts for visitors to move
> back and forth between physical and digital spaces either serially or
> simultaneously?
> Kind regards from Thomas Soetens and Kora Van den Bulcke
