Fall 2014 Digital Narrative Project

Fairy tales and Myths can provide a rich starting point for a digital media project. Passed down from oral storytellers through literary traditions to new media, they are always altered by retelling to reflect the needs of the storyteller and the aesthetics of the time. Because the story is so well known, it can be altered significantly and still remain resonant and recognizable to the contemporary audience. In 10 images, tell a a very old story in a new way. Final Reflections and links to webgalleries posted to comments here

Ildiko Rippel
Senior Lecturer in Drama & Performance
Institute of Humanities & Creative Arts

Ildiko’s research focuses on new technologies in contemporary performance and the virtual presence of “non-performers” in theatre.

Ildiko is co-founder and artistic director of Zoo Indigo, Nottingham (www.zooindigo.co.uk), which has been creating and touring innovative contemporary theatre in collaboration with new media artists since 2002. Through the use of humour and the reprocessing of cultural images, Zoo Indigo’s work explores the accidental, anecdotal and autobiographical, with a focus on interactive new technology. Her research explores the digital “non-performer”, through involving live video connections to the performers’ sleeping children in Zoo Indigo’s performance Under the Covers (2009-2013).

Fairy Tales / Dark Things

Here’s a great bit to view as we kick off our Digital Narratives / Fairy Tale project:
Neil Gaiman discussing his work with dark stories and Hansel and Gretel…

“If you are protected from dark things then you have no protection of, knowledge of, or understanding of dark things when they show up.”

Art2016 / Remix Music Projection Project

Students in Art2016 / Remix Music Projection Project

You have done a great job on this first project so far, diving in and experimenting with various ways to generate a series of images. Looking at the work you shared in class on Tuesday, I see wonderful use of pattern and repetition and color in response to the symphonic music… Please use the full class time today to generate another wave of images (10 additional remixes) that build on the best of your images, and also mix in some elements from work of your classmates.

Think about creating a series of images that will flow in the performance projections, and also build bridges between your work and the work of others in the class. Listen to the music several more times and remix the images to work with a portion of the music if possible.

In the spirit of RiP! A Remix Manifesto, you may borrow and remix the work of your classmates and integrate it into your next series. SAVE all your new versions in a new folder MusicName_Remix2_yourname to share next week. Next week we will work as a group to begin the process of merging all the images into a timeline for the projection slideshow.

You can access other images by your classmates via the PUBLIC folder (where you uploaded them yesterday) if you are on campus. If you are off campus, You can find links to their image galleries in the email I sent you today.
