The Day After - Friday, December 15, 2006

The Micro Jamboree 2006 has ended, and today we're preparing for the open days this weekend. While moving speakers, tables, joysticks and empty beer bottles, we receive more visual material from last week.

Anne LaBerge's contribution

One of the most delightful threads that caught my attention in the Jamboree presentations and concerts was the notion that collaborations offer artists opportunities to develop their material, ideas and works in ways that working alone fall short. In other words, in our present time when we have the means to build, program, perform and administrate our own works it is important to learn to share these tasks in the creative process. In the presentations by Lex (Xport & Wipost, The Hague Conservatory) and Dan Overholt (CUI, UCSB) it was sometimes mentioned and sometimes even stressed that projects that involve collaborative efforts found their way into deeper artistic territory. It was also brought to our attention that the concepts of bigger, faster, better technology were not always the most useful anymore. Issues such as creative nuance, human behaviour, compromises for specific uses, replecations of the analogue world, were seriously considered in their discussions of hardware, software and artistic developments.
