MuRe, Museography Network. Co-creation strategies for building real-time storytelling through advanced. Internet network. A project for the interconnection of knowledge considering human and technological inclusion
Visits to the museum represent a powerful strategy to be developed. MuRe takes this one step forward, integrating countries, people, museums and objects. MuRe takes place in the field of cultural convergence and advanced internet networks. MuRe´s aim is to generate a real-time, advanced Internet circuit with different institutions. It would feature stories of heritage, dialogues and interactions with the public. Participants create an exhibition that only exists on the Internet. Participating institutions and audiences do not geographically coexist, but share the same virtual time and space. The object is conceived in a broad sense, art piece, heritage object, material and immaterial, aiming to stimulate the co-creation process in ICT.
The UC Davis Design Department is the most comprehensive Design department in the University of California system, offering B.A. and M.F.A. in Design. The Department offers a creative, challenging, and flexible approach to the study of design with emphasis on socially responsible, human-centered, and sustainable practices. The department is investing in curricular expansion and preparing to provide new tools and methodologies to educate critical makers with life-long learning skills in order to contribute meaningfully to an interconnected local and global society. With an outlook to deeply and broadly integrate emerging theory and practices in design, the department seeks opportunities to dialogue, exchange and network with similar programs at the conference. In particular, we are seeking directions to expand the following areas: kinematics, code-based design, network and data-based design, industrial design, interactive media, physical computing, systems design and wearable technology.

Zane Cerpina and Stahl Stenslie / Norway EE - Experimental Emerging Art Norway [email protected]
EE - Experimental and Emerging Art Norway - is a publication that gives a rapid response to and visual overviews of important contributions to all what art can be. The magazine presents major contributions to the field of emerging aesthetics, showing the field of art in a constant flux, challenging the major market driven trends of our time. One of EE’s main purposes is to support the interesting, the subversive, the abject, the striking but also intriguing, wondrous and the beautiful in the ongoing human project of making art. EE’s format is multiple; part magazine, newszine, part website and it spans across several media formats. Often EE articles are more visual than textual, but online you will find additional background material such as original sound files, video, additional photos and other Zeitgeist documents to all our coverage. While the issues are printed, EE is also freely downloadable online as a PDF based magazine.

The Department of Arts and Humanities at UAM Lerma has only 4 years of creation, with barely 4 generations of students still on the classrooms, it offers the bachelors program Digital arts and Communications. We would like to introduce our department, our two groups of research, check for collaboration and exchange opportunities, within the digital + art academic ISEA community.
