8 Dec. 2009: workshop with Matt Adams from Blast Theory

Cultural Content on the Move: workshop with Blast Theory,

8 December 2009
Location: Virtueel Platform, Damrak 70, Amsterdam, Netherlands
9.30 am – 3pm

Virtueel Platform (the Netherlands sector institute for electronic culture) and DISH conference partner will host a workshop on innovative new media applications for the heritage sector, with Matt Adams of internationally renowned group Blast Theory. Blast Theory has focused most recently on new uses of location technologies for non-commercial content in the public space using existing technology to new purposes. The one-day workshop will kick off with some insights into Blast Theory’s own projects and their relevance to the heritage field. The rest of the day is a workshop in which participants will be helped to devise new ways in which their own cultural content can be used to best advantage with (mobile) technology.

Blast Theory is a Brighton-based group of artists and researchers who make interactive works for the gallery, the street and television. Their recent collaborations with the Mixed Reality Lab at the University of Nottingham have been recognised internationally as breaking new ground in the combination of online games, wireless networks and virtual worlds. Other partners include BBC Interactive and the Science Museum, London.
