TRANSMEDIALE 2013 Festival for Arts and Digital Culture - GEERT LOVINK KEYNOTE, BERLIN

IMG_6278

Last night I went HKW (Haus Der Kulturen Der Welt) to attend TRANSMEDIALE 2013 Festival for Arts and Digital Culture, being held here in Berlin from Jan 29th - Feb 02. On their website Transmediale say this about the festival:

"traversing thematic threads, professions, panels, exhibitions, film screenings, performances, and workshops; the one Pluto long day and Earth week will present visitors with diverse events re-enacting not-so-distant pasts and half-forgotten places. We will explore unrealistic and poetic modes of cultural critique—as if BWPWAP."

I had originally planned on attending the LET THERE BE LIGHT AND SOUND performance but was encouraged by Filippo to check out keynote speech by Geert Lovink, "BWPWAP Networks with Geert Lovink Social Media: From Complaints to Alternative Tools". Was quite funny timing as I have recently (with great reluctance and hesitation) joined one of the "social networks" (more about this later). The past couple of days as I have slowly explored the brave new world (for me) of social media I found myself confused, disorientated, and overwhelmed to say the least. Attending Geert talk was quite enlightening (possibly even therapeutic), as he pushed for consciousness rather then fear, as well as advocating (by subtle introduction though the talk) many alternative movements in social media networks, methods of protecting and reclaiming your data and ways of using "the networks" in more "healthy" way. Some how the talk made me feel better about the whole thing...well sort of.

Rather then then telling you all about the talk in more detail, I thought it would more effective to share its contents via a series of links and key concepts I gathered from notes on "BWPWAP Networks with Geert Lovink Social Media: From Complaints to Alternative Tools". I hope you enjoy this information as much as I did.

SAN DIEGO SUNSET - UNREAL CLOUDS

IMG_0244

I shot this picture the other night, the clouds didn't look real. I guess I have to enjoy the sunshine while it last as I will be headed back to Berlin on Friday and I have heard it has been grey and rainny since I left in August.

Here is a video of another sunset on the coast in La Jolla which I found, this is very California.
