just got back to amsterdam from extra time in San Jose. I was wondering
what peoples impressions were? Sorry if this has already done the rounds
of the list, I have been psuedo offline for a week or so...
My impressions of the event were mixed. I think NZ had a very strong
presence and it was the event more than any other that marks a coming of
age of NZ digital media art on the world stage (so to speak). Having the large screens of
(Cloud Shape Classifier) was really amazing as they hit you immediately as
you walked into the main exhibition room. Looked fantastic. Also, I
believe that Caro and Angela had about 2000 kids go through Animalia and
by the sounds of it it was a huge success.
I also saw Zitas work and it looked really great although possibly a little hard to find
amongst the screens in the mid part of the south hall, which is a shame as
it is a very strong work.
I missed almost everything else (including the symposium) as I was having various
logistical problems with re:mote and the internal (dis)organisation of ISEA.
What was everyones impression of ISEA? I missed checking out thoroughly Ians, Natalies,
and Rachels work which I regret. How did you each feel it went? I also
missed the Pacific Rim forum...any feedback on how it went Danny?
