Next Thursday, the work me and two others made for our study will be exhibited in Rotterdam. Come and see! We worked with openFrameworks, an RC car, a force feedback wheel, the Kinect, augmented reality and the theme ‘Hypocrisy’.
✜ Are you a tweaker, a manipulator, a hypocrite? Are you in doubt, do you seek evidence?
✜ We know what your data is worth. We have all the facts.
✜ We guess you’ll just have to see for yourself.
☛ Exhibition Opening Hours
The opening ceremony of the exhibition takes place on Thursday, February 12th at 17h00. After that, you can visit the exhibition from 12h00-18h00 on February 13, 14 and 15 and on February 20, 21 and 22.
This year’s Media Technology MSc students have taken “INTEGRITY” as the global theme for their semester project. From this global theme multiple sub-themes were derived: artifact, doubt, evidence, fact, guess, manipulate, hypocrisy and to tweak. The students work in groups of three, each with their own sub-theme. The semester project has three phases. First of all the students are asked to explore their theme in the broadest sense (social, mathematical, biological, etc) and discover what it could possibly relate to. After gaining sufficient insight in the theme they are asked to formulate compelling statements related to the theme. Then they translate their statements into an installation. Together these installations form the semester project exhibition.
☛ Media Technology MSc program
In the Media Technology MSc program students are encouraged to develop a creative approach towards science. Students are educated to translate their personal interests and inspiration into research projects. We’re open to unusual questions, unconventional research methods and other forms of scientific output besides written articles.This includes for instance installations, games and books.The semester project is a good example of our approach: the students are asked to translate their statement into a work that functions within an exhibition context.
☛ In addition to the exhibition the program includes public lectures by PhD researcher Hanna Schraffenberger and two Media Technology alumni, Annika Geurtsen and Arjen Suijker, who will talk about their graduation work. Everyone is invited to attend, free of cost!
