Multimodal Online Mediation. A Typology of Patterns For Media Art-Mediation

  1. 1. MULTIMODAL ONLINE MEDIATION: A TYPOLOGY OF PATTERNS FOR MEDIA ART-MEDIATION Florian Wiencek, Ognyan Seizov, Marion G. Müller; Jacobs University Bremen Research Center „Visual Communication and Expertise“ (VisComX)13.10.2010 Presentation at the ECREA Conference 2010. Section 6 – Digital Culture & Communication – Panel 6-2: Art
  2. 2. Outline   Meaning Generation in Digital Archives   Problem & Research Design   Preliminary Results Wiencek, Seizov, Müller - Multimodal Online Mediation @ ECREA 2010 13.10.2010
  3. 3. Definition of the Term „Mediation“ 13.10.2010Wiencek, Seizov, Müller - Multimodal Online Mediation @ ECREA 2010   use of the term “mediation” in the sense of the German word „Vermittlung“ of content, which can be described as the communication of content by different means (tools, media, etc.)   mediation is about the „inbetween“ between recipient and e.g. an artwork or data about an artwork  display   in the digital context we are talking about interfaces and specific „interface-grammars“ (Manovich 2001, p. 73)   mediation as translation-process (e.g. Grusin & Bolter 1996)
  4. 4. Definition of an Archive   selection   order + metadata  retrieval   accessibility   conservation of material   decontextualization & re-contextualization   construction of reality (cf. e.g. Haber, 2006; Ernst, 2002b; Drechsel, 2005) 13.10.2010Wiencek, Seizov, Müller - Multimodal Online Mediation @ ECREA 2010 Archive
  5. 5. Digital Archives 13.10.2010Wiencek, Seizov, Müller - Multimodal Online Mediation @ ECREA 2010   Michel Foucault (French Philosopher):   archive as (institutional) site of discursive formation (Foucault 1973 – Archaeology of Knowledge)   Lev Manovich (Media Theorist, UCLA, USA)   the archive becomes a database  enhanced functionality
  6. 6. Research Questions 13.10.2010Wiencek, Seizov, Müller - Multimodal Online Mediation @ ECREA 2010 1.  What are the the different modalities used in online-mediation of media art and what are their roles? 2.  Which modalities are used to mediate specific aspects of the artworks? 3.  Do the different modalities interact to mediate an artistic project in the different strategies?
  7. 7.   Categorization of the material   Interactive processes of digital archives   Visualization and contextualization of archive material   Retrieval 4 Dimensions of Meaning Generation in Digital Archives 13.10.2010Wiencek, Seizov, Müller - Multimodal Online Mediation @ ECREA 2010
  8. 8. Mediation Paradox (Dieter Daniels, 2004) 13.10.2010Wiencek, Seizov, Müller - Multimodal Online Mediation @ ECREA 2010   media art projects are produced in electronic media but are not mediated in them   loss of specific qualities of the works in classical mediation in museum catalogues (text + image)   projects are not about the object but about the action they evoke in the user (cf. Mulder 2007, p.54)   media qualities, „realms of possibilities“, configuration of the work need to be documented   media art needs to be mediated by multimedia and related to relevant theory (cf. Daniels 2004, p. 90 ff)
  9. 9. Mediation Paradox (Dieter Daniels, 2004) (2) 13.10.2010Wiencek, Seizov, Müller - Multimodal Online Mediation @ ECREA 2010   Web as medium is especially suited (Wiencek 2009)   use of several media types   processability of digital data   accessability   connection of information nodes inside a archive but also of different archives  discourse space (cf. Ernst, 2002; Haber, 2006; Manovich, 2001; Wiencek, 2009)   BUT: translation of media art projects into a format for digital storage and display needed  re-mediation (Bolter & Grusin, 1996)  loss of information
  10. 10. Sample 13.10.2010Wiencek, Seizov, Müller - Multimodal Online Mediation @ ECREA 2010   Ars Electronica Archiv   V2_archive   virtualart.at   Daniel Langlois Foundation   Medien Kunst Netz  Educational Platform   netzspannung.org    GAMA  Subject Gateway Institutional Archives Archives in Scientific Contexts Educational Platform / Collaborative Online Platform
  11. 11. Documented Layers of Interactive Installations 13.10.2010Wiencek, Seizov, Müller - Multimodal Online Mediation @ ECREA 2010 Concept Setup Technology Space Elements/ Component s of the Artwork Interface Interaction between Hard- & Software Possible Experience Interactive Process Realm of Possibilities Exhibition / Performance Situation(s) User Experience Context History History of Technology Art History Archive- Context Institutional Context External Sources Exhibitions Literature Project History Versioning Partial Projects Specific Exhibited Version Additional Information Artist‘s Bio Archive- Specific Additional Information Metadata Title Artist Year Keywords Type Archive- Specific Metadata
  12. 12. Conclusions 13.10.2010Wiencek, Seizov, Müller - Multimodal Online Mediation @ ECREA 2010   No correspondence between the function of the archive and the modalities used for documentation   Text & images are still the most prevalent mediation-modalities, but also video, audio and other means such as hyperlinks, automated search (dynamic content) and interactive applications / visualizations are used.   Text is in part used as hypertext  non-linearity
