The seminar will consist of talks by experts in various areas of media arts, multimedia systems,
media technology, and related areas of research and practice. There will be a mix of speakers,
from UCSB and from outside, with a variety of backgrounds, including computer science, engineering,
art, and music. Occasionally we will schedule discussion or brainstorming sessions instead of a talk.
Professor Curtis Roads
The Variantologia Latina panel explored the deep roots of media history in Latin America,
inquiring into phenomena which anticipate the concepts of network, photography and scientific
tools before the 20th century.

Burbano will talk about the ideas which conform the text "polaroids: aesthetic,
biology and technology, articulating Latin America". These ideas were not planned
to conform a text, but to link to a documentary production". Despite this, it is
important to share some reflections of this research process on the complex
relationship between art and biotechnology, and the multiple facets that this
problematic field shows in Latin America. As an Assistant Professor part of the
Art Department as well as the Technology and Society Group at Universidad de los
Andes in Bogota, Colombia, his interests are working in a common space on the
intersection between artistic, social and technological reflections. He has also
studied cinema with an emphasis on documentary film making. Furthermore, he has been
a guest researcher at Zentrum fur Kunst and Medientechnologie Karlsruhe in Germany (2004 2005)"

Technology Working Group, The UNC-Duke Modernity/Coloniality and the Geopolitics of

Brief description of the presentation: This presentation analyzes recent experiences
of net.art in the Latin American context, including collective net(art)working,
the sense of immersion in the internet environment, and the concept of no-audience
(no-audiencia): the fact that there are no observers, only participants of/in interactive
processes. Attention is also given to the various readings that become possible because
of the non-linearity inherent to the medium. Some of these points will be illustrated
with examples from the work of Latin American artists."
Studied the concepts of an audio-visual genre based on the re-interpretation and new processing of audio-visual »documents«. The aim is to question whether the transference of these concepts to digital information is at all possible due to its documentary character. The aspects to be observed are various methods such as archiving, interpreting, and processing of the material. Two concrete project examples will be presented: Quiasma and Ways of Neuron. The Quiasma group is supported by Canada Daniel Langlois foundation. The interdisciplinary media artist and researcher Andrés Burbano is presently guest researcher at the ZKM | Institute for Basic Research more info
