Technological Mediations of Art and Writing
Workshop leaders: Amy Barnickel, Julie Voelker-Morris, Lynn Susholtz
Saturday, March 29, 2014
Limit: 30 participants
Lunch will NOT be provided
This hands-on workshop invites citizen artists, scholars, and educators to explore current technological mediations of art and writing. Participants will illustrate, compose, and address personalized postcards (4x6 or 5x7) to loved ones (or even those you just “like”); explore intersections of traditional and new media; and create a crowdsourced exhibition of their work in the Art Produce Gallery. The exhibit will be on display during the NAEA Convention and then continue to be enhanced, changed, and mediated by the residents of the San Diego community in the Gallery during a 4-week-long period following the conference. After the exhibit period, all stamped postcards will be mailed to their intended recipients or delivered via digital social media such as Facebook or Instagram. Attendees may choose to also participate in an optional technological project extension: create an “audio postcard” by printing out text from phone calls onto postcards using Google voice phone to transcribe messages from external parties.
