  • Torben Sko was the guest of honor at last night’s Dorkbot meeting where he gave a fascinating talk about the complex processes involved in producing a digital self portrait with a difference. Recently shown at the National Portrait Gallery and appropriately titled Self Portrait this amazing piece extends the notion of self potraiture by involving the audience. Using facial tracking techniques the portrait actually takes on the physical behaviour of the viewer or in other words, it mimics movements and expressions … quite accurately! Driven by both artistic and technical interests Torben is currently conducting a PhD into alternative forms of interaction for computer games. (by David Broker)
  • This month we would like to welcome long standing Canberra dorkbot affiliate Mitchell Whitelaw to talk about a recent project he has been working on with the National Archives of Australia under their Ian Maclean Award. The Visible Archive is a research project in the visualisation of archival datasets, supported by the National Archives of Australia under their Ian Maclean Award (2008). It explores the potential of interactive visualisation to navigate, interpret and analyse large cultural and historical datasets. In this talk Mitchell will present interactive sketches from the project, visualising the Archives entire collection – made up of some 65,000 Series – and navigating a single Series, A1, containing thousands of pages of digitised records.

  • Tim Plaisted is an artist living in Brisbane working with media art. Plaisted’s work has been exhibited in Australia, Mexico, South Korea, Singapore, Thailand, UK, USA and reviewed in Artforum. His current work, Careful Messenger (2008) continues an exploration of realtime 3d and game tools in media art from recent works, River’s End (2007) and Handheld (2006). His earlier work, Surface Browser (2004), was commissioned for the National Endowment for Science, Technology and the Arts UK gallery launch and included in “2004: Australian Culture Now” national survey of contemporary art. Surface Browser as well as networkdposition (1999) and 24Hr Coverage (2000) were included in three MAAP (Multimedia Arts Asia Pacific) Festivals in Australia and Singapore.
