Jason Nelson and Alina Krauth are guest speakers in connection with the Experts in Teamwork course "Technovision" at KiT.
Their lecture is open for all.
Alinta Krauth is a multidisciplinary new media artist and researcher of digital humanities and technology. Her focuses include projection art, interactive art, and electronic literature, and the inherent connections between these fields. She is interested in art’s social relevance and how it may be applied to highlight sociopolitical and environmental injustices, particularly with regards to climate change
and environmental disruption. Her academic, literary, creative, and hybrid works have been exhibited and published globally. Most notably, her research and practice on interactive controllers for projection-mapped objects and pseudo-holographic projection, interactive screen-based public experiences, and the connection between gravity and proprioception in music listening.
Coming from Australia as a Fulbright Fellow at the University of Bergen, Jason Nelson is a creator of curious and wondrous digital poems and fictions of odd lives, builder of confounding art games and all manner of curious digital creatures. He professes Net Art and Electronic Literature at Australia's Griffith University in subtropical metropolis of Brisbane. Aside from coaxing his students into breaking,
playing and morphing their creativity with all manner of technologies, he exhibits widely in galleries and journals, with work featured around the globe at FILE, ACM, LEA, ISEA, SIGGRAPH, ELO and dozens of other acronyms. There are awards to list (Paris Biennale Media Poetry Prize), organizational boards he frequents (Australia Council Literature Board and the Electronic Literature Organization), and numerous other accolades (Webby Award), but in the web based realm where his work resides, Jason is most proud of the millions of visitors his artwork/digital poetry
