Interdisciplinary Conference & Workshop-Summit
"Analog" and "Digital": By many considered as antipodes, they have always been sisters. Of course on the technical level the terms are used to describe two different principles: In the first case, a physical signal is being translated into a physical one – in the second case, it's translated into computable digits. However, in everyday life they usually come together anyway.
Yet for quite some time now there are also new alliances of analog and digital: From the internet of things over objects finding their way from digital media culture back into materiality, to the wonderful world of FabLabs and 3D printers we can find a whole variety of transfers, transformations and syntheses. What used to be "analog" and/or "digital" becomes ANALOGITAL!
To take a closer look at these developments and to find out more about their productive potentials, this year's interfiction summit for art, media and network cultures invites with lectures, presentations and workshop-sessions to dive into the analogital sphere.
Artists and tinkerers, video- and filmmakers, designers, programmers, researchers, curators, writers and others interested in interdisciplinary exchange are invited to join the conference and to discuss their ideas and projects. Moreover, the interfiction DIY-Lab will offer opportunities to test, to share and to develop how-tos and know-how in practice as well.
