Play with Fire final days at Algoritmos Criativos

The last days at the exhibition were completely filled with intensive work doing participants observation, tests and records. Here is a selection of photos focused on the Play with Fire interactive installation implementation and user interaction observation on this flickr set »

The Colab also reports some of the exhibition installations by UT Austin|Portugal Program Digital Media PhD students, including Play with Fire. Check pages 4-5 of the February newsletter to find Play with Fire, Onomaphonic and Prefall135 »

Additionally, I had my Digital Media students of the Multimedia Art degree on February 23 and the Multimedia Project II students of the Art and Heritage Sciences degree on February 25 visiting the exhibition as part of the references presented from the insider's perspective by Pedro Ângelo, for later discussion in class. Take a look at the references list of the works presented in the exhibition posted in the classes blog »
And here it is the overall view of the Algoritmos Criativos exhibition photos set from the study visits »

*Thanks* to everyone that collaborated by answering the tests form, in presence at the Pavilhão do Conhecimento, or later online! In case you have been at the exhibition and still want to contribute to the ongoing research, here is the tests form link »
(this anonymous test will only take 5-10 min., and the feedback is precious for the current research and further iterations of the Play with Fire interactive installation :)

Entrepreneurs interviews

I participated in an entrepreneurship workshop, and one of the assignments was to ask some open questions to entrepreneurs. I thought this could be an interesting opportunity for a skype video talk to get to know more about these entrepreneurs and the great projects they are involved in, so then I spread the word at the workshop presentation and also online.

I had a very nice input from all of them, and then I edited the recorded video of the interviews in a non-linear application to integrate all the contributions. Here is the link to the non-linear video of the interviews I edited using Korsakow
It is now available from my website main page directly at the at the "Interviews Entrepreneurs" text box link »

Watch it several times and explore it the way you want to, you will get a different experience everytime – anyway, I recommend you to click on the lower right button for the full screen mode. The interviewed entrepreneurs are Juliana Rotich, John Brennan, Pedro Ângelo and Teddy Ruge. *Thank you so much to you all*
