"Big Brother Goes Green: Surveillance for Sustainable Forests" accepted for SXSW

Remember this special request (some months ago...) to vote for my proposal? Yay, the panel that me and Nuno Correia proposed *with Prentiss' expert review collaboration* has been accepted to be part of the 2011 SXSW Interactive Festival in March in Austin!

Thank you so much to all that voted and commented on our proposal at the SXSW panelPicker » Here's the list of confirmed sessions for the 2011 SXSW Interactive Festival with the accepted PanelPicker Proposals titles »

AZ Labs are also spreading the word, and Filipe Cruz posted on this and other labs members good news... unmissable! ;) »

Sharing the experience

Austin, UT and SXSW flyers, maps, magazines gadgets & music CDs samples – I'll be glad to share it all with you – live at the Media Ground!
Marta's book request is now delivered, just in case you want to borrow from her The Digital and the Children, by the UT professor Craig Watkins, who also did a presentation and book signing at SXSW. His successful book sold out during the SXSW Interactive week!
And… I can't wait to start to fill out the walls, so watch out for future posts, I'll be uploading some photos and videos ;)


Restless minds at MoMA

Flying back to Portugal, I got the opportunity to stay for a few days at Newark stopover, inevitably visiting MoMA ;)). Another unmissable experience, not only for revisiting the permanent exhibition masterpieces at a glance, but especially for the two temporary exhibitions – Marina Abramovic and Tim Burton. The exhibitions were both tremendous, conceived by restless creative minds, but absolutely contrasting!
On the upper floor, the controversial new performance proposals by Marina Abramovic, where the human bodies "incarnate" live sculptures – the artist included, for she is there for real at the ground floor during the whole exhibition, an ubiquitous presence – see it by yourself, live online! Shocking at first sight, nobody gets indifferent with such strong messages.
On the ground floor, the fantastic surreal worlds inhabited by creatures brought to life through the drawn lines of Tim Burton, showcasing colorful sketches, sculptures and animations – frantic, I can tell!
