L’organisme américain de normalisation SMPTE (Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers) a élu le 15 décembre dernier son nouveau président pour la période 2021-22. Il s’agit de l’allemand Hans Hoffmann, actuel responsable des fondamentaux et de la production média à l’UER. Le 1er janvier 2021, le Dr Hans Hoffmann sera le premier Européen de l’histoire de la SMPTE (fondée en 1916) à occuper cette fonction.
Ce poste renforcera les liens et les partenariats de l’UER avec la SMPTE au service du secteur des médias et du divertissement au sens large. La SMPTE est basée dans l’état de New-York à White Plains et fonctionne comme une association professionnelle mondiale d’ingénieurs, de technologues et de cadres travaillant dans l’industrie des médias et du divertissement. Son travail est à la base de nombreux standards vidéo utilisés par la télévision, le cinéma et les nouveaux médias.
Hans Hoffmann, membre de la SMPTE, a rejoint l’organisme en tant que jeune ingénieur et y a progressé en prenant des fonctions de direction de groupes de normalisation, de présidence de comités technologiques. Il a été gouverneur du conseil d’administration pour la région EMEA, vice-président des normes et des finances avant de devenir vice-président exécutif. Tout au long de sa carrière, il a participé aux travaux de la SMPTE, de l’UER, de l’UIT et d’autres groupes internationaux de normalisation. Il a fondé plus récemment l’Inter-SDO, association d’organismes internationaux de normalisation qui se réunit régulièrement pour comparer leurs travaux.
Hans Hoffmann a reçu la médaille Richard Theile 2020 du FKTG (l’équivalent de la SMPTE en Allemagne) pour ses services exceptionnels dans le domaine des technologies de télévision. Cette récompense honore ses recherches dans la HDTV et l’UHDTV et sa contribution significative aux organismes internationaux de normalisation.
Artistic gestures and processes can be seen as magical rituals, from which the myth of the artist has emerged over time. The aura of the artwork is used to cast a spell on its viewer!
In the art scene in particular, mysticism around art-making is kept alive by common rituals such as exhibitions, vernissages, and performative events, which propose collective shared experiences of something bigger.
For this open call, bb15 is seeking original project proposals that trigger mental associations and subliminal experiences at the junction of art, ritual and magic.
The residency program focuses on and explores the interplay between contemporary visual art and auditory practices, in relation to the theme of art+magic. The call doesn’t exclude any artistic media.
During the residency at bb15, the selected artists will be expected to push forward and bring further their proposal into a work that will be presented to the public at the end of the residency.
It is highly desirable that the invited artists create specific and new works during their stay.
– Duration: 2-3 weeks
– Possible periods: Spring 2021 or Autumn 2021
– There is a € 1200 all-in budget per artist in residence. This amount should cover all costs such as travel, equipment, production costs, daily expenses, and artist fees. Artists will be provided with free accommodation and workplace at the premises of bb15.
– The residency entails the realization of an exhibition or performative event at bb15.
– bb15 will provide technical and curatorial support as well as the promotion of the exhibition.
Ars Electronica features a wide variety of activities every year: Symposia, exhibitions, performances, concerts and interventions spanning a broad arc from speculative futuristic scenarios to analytical considerations, from provocative actionism to philosophical debate.
Combining amazing artworks with fruitful conversations is the perfect recipe to create a meaningful experience that constantly scans the new media landscape to find the most inspiring projects. The projects are not simply chosen based on their technical realization but most importantly because the social and artistic innovation they incorporate.
The result of this consistent endeavour is the creation of a loyal community of audiovisual artists, researchers and visitors from all over the world that every year reunites in Linz to inspire and get inspired.
Since its inception, the festival has been dedicated to develop new themes for each edition and the organizers are also constantly on the lookout for interesting new venues.
Indeed, the ongoing effort to break out of the narrow confines of conventional conference rooms and artistic spaces, and to stage cultural and scientific encounters in the public sphere has become something of an Ars Electronica trademark.
Stay tuned: Ars Electronica 2020 theme will be released soon!
The audiovisual installation will be recorded and publicly presented online as the culmination of the residence. Later on, when audiovisual events will kick back on the projects will be actually presented in the 360° Gallery with participation of the audience.
The 360° Gallery features a mind-boggling set up with 10 projectors displaying images with 16910×1080 pixels resolution. That opens up immense creative opportunities to generate a fully immersive environment.
During the 31-day #home edition residence, between 15/09/2020 – 18/10/2020, the selected audiovisual artists (or artistic groups) are going to work in their home or studio on their own audiovisual project.
The selected artists will have remote contact with the organizational and technical team and co-residents, as well as the possibility of conducting 2 remote attempts to display the work on the projection system in the 360° Gallery in order to check the accuracy and allow for possible corrections.
The following criteria will be taken into account in the selection of the winning projects:
The building was erected in 1910 and features a ottoman neoclassical design style. The purpose of the open call is to highlight the architectural patterns of the facade and the history of the building through audiovisual techniques
The 3 Finalists of the competition, who will be selected by audience and the festival curators, will each receive a prize.
The winner of the contest will receive the Grand prize of 1500€. The second and third place will receive 1000€ and 500€ respectively.
The Emerging Digital Artists Award (EDAA) is Canada’s award for critical experimentation in digital media. The award consists of $5,000 for the winner, and $1,000 for four finalists, as well as a group exhibition.
Since 2015, the EDAA has been promoting artists working within virtual space, by seeking submissions that push us in new directions, and challenge us to see the world through a different screen.BUY US A COFFEE?
