Embodiment of Stories in Hybrid Environments

  1. 1. Anatole Pierre Fuksas Embodiment of Stories in Hybrid Environments: Narrative Art in the Age of Social Networking and Locative Media
  2. 2. ‘ Ubiquitous Computing’ or ‘Pervasive Computing’ <ul><li>Proliferation of </li></ul><ul><li>digital devices </li></ul><ul><li>in natural environments. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Locative Media <ul><li>Concept has been introduced by </li></ul><ul><li>Karlis Kalnins at the RIXC Centre </li></ul><ul><li>For New Media Culture «in order to </li></ul><ul><li>distinguish the latter creative </li></ul><ul><li>explorations of the medium from </li></ul><ul><li>the corporate hype surrounding </li></ul><ul><li>location-based services». </li></ul>
  4. 4. Geotagging or Geocoding or Locative Tagging <ul><li>Geographical </li></ul><ul><li>identification metadata </li></ul><ul><li>(as latitude and longitude </li></ul><ul><li>coordinates, altitude, bearing, </li></ul><ul><li>place names, zip codes) applied to </li></ul><ul><li>various media such as websites, </li></ul><ul><li>RSS feeds, or images. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Narrative Tags <ul><li>Narrative Markers providing </li></ul><ul><li>exposition interfering </li></ul><ul><li>with actual perception of given </li></ul><ul><li>environments, as engraved </li></ul><ul><li>epigraphy, boards, panels, </li></ul><ul><li>podcasts, eventually geotagged </li></ul><ul><li>media provided by locative portable </li></ul><ul><li>devices, describing trees, paths, </li></ul><ul><li>historical monuments, events that </li></ul><ul><li>took place in a given place, or </li></ul><ul><li>similar. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Ecological approach to storytelling <ul><li>processing of described events </li></ul><ul><li>leads to embodiment of </li></ul><ul><li>Corresponding sensory </li></ul><ul><li>experiences, actions </li></ul><ul><li>and emotions by means of </li></ul><ul><li>resonance and mirror matching. </li></ul>
  7. 7. For instance…
  8. 8. Tagging Kailua Beach… (channel 1) <ul><li>Kailua is a town on the windward side of </li></ul><ul><li>Oahu. Kailua has a population of about 28,800 </li></ul><ul><li>and the average household income is about </li></ul><ul><li>$71,000. In January the average high temp. is 76 </li></ul><ul><li>degrees and in July the avrage high temp. is 78 </li></ul><ul><li>degrees. Kailua offers many fine places to dine </li></ul><ul><li>and there are many different activities such as: </li></ul><ul><li>Golf, Surfing, Snorkeling, Paddling, Boating, </li></ul><ul><li>Fishing and much more. Kailua has many types </li></ul><ul><li>housing options as well. Single family homes, </li></ul><ul><li>townhomes and a couple high rise condos. Kailua </li></ul><ul><li>is a great place to live . Feel free to contact </li></ul><ul><li>us for more information. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Tagging Kailua Beach… (channel 2) <ul><li>Heavy Rains Flood Kailua Beach Park, Homes </li></ul><ul><li>By Mary Simms </li></ul><ul><li>Nov 5, 2007 10:06 PM - KAILUA (KHNL) </li></ul><ul><li>While the Island of Hawaii is being hit with the </li></ul><ul><li>Heavy showers, thunderstorms and heavy rain </li></ul><ul><li>struck Oahu overnight . And, by Sunday morning </li></ul><ul><li>nearly a foot of rain had fallen on the windward </li></ul><ul><li>side. All the rain has left Kailua Beach Park </li></ul><ul><li>looking much more like a lake, than a park . </li></ul><ul><li>For neighboring residents who've faced flooding </li></ul><ul><li>before, it's a winter tradition they say they've </li></ul><ul><li>had enough of.City and County crews pump water </li></ul><ul><li>out of a flooded Kawailoa Road, into Kailua </li></ul><ul><li>Beach park […] </li></ul>
  10. 10. Hybrid Environment (temptative description) <ul><li>natural ecosystem providing </li></ul><ul><li>Mediated textual, audiovisual or </li></ul><ul><li>whatever contents to be processed </li></ul><ul><li>according to the actual sensory </li></ul><ul><li>appraisal of the natural features </li></ul><ul><li>and to be directly or indirectly </li></ul><ul><li>related to them. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Hybrid Perception (temptative definition) <ul><li>sensory experience defined by the </li></ul><ul><li>mutual interaction of sensory </li></ul><ul><li>appraisal featuring visual, </li></ul><ul><li>tactile or multimodal </li></ul><ul><li>assessment of evironmental </li></ul><ul><li>features, and references emerging </li></ul><ul><li>from media providing textual, </li></ul><ul><li>audiovisual or whatever contents </li></ul><ul><li>to be directly or indirectly </li></ul><ul><li>related to perceived landscape. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Hybrid Ecologies (VERY temptative definition) <ul><li>interactions taking places </li></ul><ul><li>among organisms and between </li></ul><ul><li>organisms and other inanimate </li></ul><ul><li>items in Hybrid Environments, </li></ul><ul><li>implying Hybrid Perception as </li></ul><ul><li>a peculiar explorative </li></ul><ul><li>strategy. </li></ul>
