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 :)

RTiVISS proposes innovative ways of conceiving both digital media arts and cutting edge environmentally sustainable practices through critical research and experimental approaches. Multiplatform devices will provide access to real-time networked video for users to "adopt" selected forests. The interactive system feeds a broad community sharing "the emotion of real-time" and the challenge of uncertainty, remotely monitoring natural environments for forests protection and aesthetic exploration.
An activist facet sparks due to the potential of contributing to forests preservation and, ultimately, to a more sustainable world.

RTiVISS proposes innovative use of real-time video in artistic contexts, simultaneously contributing to help forest protection. Assuming a surveillance metaphor, can we conceive a project that is both artistic and functional?
