    DMS Professor Teri Rueb presenting at Pratt

    Department of Media Study Professor Teri Rueb will be sitting on a panel discussing Augmented Reality at Pratt University on Saturday Sept. 21.

    Augmented Reality 
    Chair: Meredith Drum
    (Artist, Department of Digital Arts at Pratt Institute)
    Panelists: Mark Skwarek (Manifest AR and Professor of Integrated Digital Media at NYU-Poly) Teri Rueb (Professor of Media Studies at SUNY Buffalo), John Craig Freeman (Manifest AR and Professor of New Media at Emerson College), Sarah Drury (Professor in New Media at Temple University)

    As the capacity of handheld devices has increased, and new augmented reality software has made production more accessible, there has been a corresponding surge of AR projects produced by artists concerned with place and situation. In what ways can these projects refocus attention in virtual and actual public spaces, and provide platforms for expanded public discourse? How do these artists produce within the boundaries of mobile AR, navigating common limitations (small screens, jumpy GPS, device dependency narrowing audience), to create meaningful experiences? This panel starts with the premise that artist-produced AR has the potential to significantly alter our relationship to cultural, political and social phenomena and to other bodies—humans, animals, plants, built structures, landforms and visible and invisible machines. Four artists producing critical place-based AR—Teri Rueb, Sarah Drury, John Craig Freeman and Phoenix Toews—will discuss their concepts, processes and choices with the audience and moderator Meredith Drum.

    Time: 11:30 am – 1:00 pm on Sat. Sept. 21

    Place: Lecture Room, Pratt Brooklyn Campus, Myrtle Hall, 215 Willoughby Ave. 11205

    Alan Price: Recent Works in Realtime Responsive Animation, Thurs Nov 8


    UB Computer Science & Engineering Colloquium and Open Air Institute Present:

    Alan Price, Ohio State Advanced Computing Center for Arts and Design (ACCAD)
    Recent Works in Realtime Responsive Animation
    Thursday, November 8 at 3:30 pm 113A Davis Hall
    Refreshments to follow, 4:30 – 5:00

    NOTE:  Individual appointments with Professor Price are being scheduled on Thursday from 7:00 a.m. – 18:30 p.m. (with the exception of the window 15:00 – 17:00).  Please email or to sign up.


    Alan Price designs and creates real time responsive animation. His background as a filmmaker and animator emphasizes narrative and cinema structure in his works with immersive and interactive storytelling. Utilizing video game technology and combinations of ready-made and custom hardware, he creates virtual environments and responsive spaces to explore alternative forms of personal expression in time-based digital media. His animation and interactive work has exhibited internationally and is on permanent display in museums of art, technology, science, and history. He is currently a professor at The Ohio State University’s Advanced Computing Center for the Arts and Design (ACCAD).


    Recent Works in Realtime Responsive Animation: Installations and Performance

    In responsive realtime animation, the viewing experience is informed by alternative methods of display and input, often creating virtual worlds that have awareness and responsiveness to the presence of the observer. This is not limited to methods for engaging multiple senses or surrounding the viewer to make him or her feel physically immersed, but also to investigate ways in which actions and their familiarity, such as taking a photograph, provides a sense of playing a role and of being integral to the representation of events taking place. These works incorporate large-scale stereoscopic projection screens, touchscreens, video tracking of body position and gesture, sound, and networked collaborative user interaction. Ongoing experimentation in this area includes works developed for live theatrical performance in collaboration with choreographers and composers, and extensions of the concepts and technology into museum displays and training applications. A chronology of creative works will be presented and discussed to elaborate on the process of development and continuing exploration in narrative structure and figurative representation combined with modes of interaction for new forms of storytelling in real time immersive environments.

    Local and Mobile Keynote Speaker: Teri Rueb


    Local and Mobile: linking mobilities, mobile communication and locative media

    When: March 16-18, 2012
    Where: North Carolina State University, Park Shops Building (BNUM. 33), Raleigh, NC
    Keynote Speakers:
    Paul Dourish (University of California, Irvine)
    Rich Ling (IT University of Copenhagen)
    Teri Rueb (University of Buffalo, SUNY)

    NC State University will be hosting Local and Mobile, a joint international conference of the Pan-American Mobilities Network and the Cosmobilities Network, and the 3rd annual research symposium of the Communication, Rhetoric and Digital Media (CRDM) program at NCSU. The first mobilities conference, Cultures of Movement: Mobile Subjects, Communities, and Technologies in the Americas took place in 2010 in Victoria, British Columbia (Canada). The second instantiation of the conference, Mobilities in Motion: New Approaches to Emergent and Future Mobilities happened this year in Philadelphia.

    Mobilities has become an important framework to understand and analyze contemporary social, spatial, economic and political practices. Being interdisciplinary in its nature, Mobilities focuses on the systematic movement of people, goods and information that “travel” around the world in rates much higher (or much slower) than before. As such, mobility studies challenge traditional scholarship that often ignores the social dimensions of mobility, overlooking how travel, movement, and communication and transportation networks help to constitute modern societies and communities. Mobility has always been critical for the creation of social networks and to the development of connections to places. In addition, Mobilities contributes to study of the technological, social and cultural developments in transportation, border control, mobile communication, “intelligent” infrastructure, surveillance.

    2-5pm, Wednesday, March 17, 2010
    301 Crosby Hall, South Campus
    University at Buffalo

    This half-day event brings together artists, architects and researchers to examine the evolving overlaps, intersections, and exchanges between the fields of Architecture and Media Art in the 21st century. As media, communication and information systems become embedded in and distributed throughout the material fabric of our daily lives, new opportunities (and dilemmas) emerge for the design and construction of the built environment. At the same time, these pervasive transformations in how we access, consume and produce contemporary media and information challenge traditional models for how we conceive, perceive and interact within physical space. Bringing together faculty from the departments of Architecture and Media Study at the University at Buffalo with faculty from the Media Architecture program at the Bauhaus–Universität, Weimar, Germany, this international gathering aims to highlight emerging transdisciplinary practices that integrate architectonic and medial space in the creation and construction of these emerging hybrid environments.

    The program consists of a six presentations and pair of panel discussions accompanied by a live, networked event/performance involving students from both Buffalo and Weimar.
