1. “URL Meets IRL”, Willa Koerner, Ben Valentine, Cortney Cassidy, Keir Winesmith, Min Liu, Zoë Salditch

    "There’s more art on the Internet than in every gallery and museum on Earth," says the team at Electric Objects. But is computer art stuck in limbo between the fine art world and the fast pace of culture online?

    A new generation of artists and technologists are evolving our tools for making, viewing, and collecting digital art. Come meet the NYC-based Electric Objects team at their Pop Up Showroom in the lobby of Gray Area Art + Technology’s new theater and join our featured participants for drinks and discussion. We’ll talk about what we all have in common – our passion for heightening the impact of creativity on the Internet – and the questions that loom as we seek out better tools for the art and artists of the digital age.

  7. Lecture by Professor James Boyle on the 4th of July 2014 at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam

    Scottish-American law scholar James Boyle called on cultural heritage institutions to focus on providing everyone with as broad as possible access to public domain material. Boyle is the director of the Center for the study of the Public Domain at Duke Law school and author of The Public Domain. In his lecture he explains that ‘this is worthwhile not merely because it is the right thing to do’ but also because it ‘will yield all kinds of benefits which are very hard for us to see right now’.

  8. Off the Press - Florian Cramer, Electronic Publishing in the Arts, what does work and what doesn’t Off the Press: Electronic Publishing in the Arts Session #3: Introducing the Digital Publishing Toolkit 22 MAY 2014, Museum Boijmans van Beuningen The computer industry promises for electronic publishing - better audiovisuality, more interactivity, easier distribution, lower costs, easier do-it-yourself publishing - often don’t quite match the reality of what is possible with electronic books and magazines, especially for small and low budget publishers. On the other hand, there new yet not-so-obvious opportunities and possibilities for publishers that go digital.

  12. Museopunks Episode 17 – Digital Fabrication

    Discussions about 3D scanning and printing technologies have started to gain momentum in the museum world, as they seem to offer museums significant new ways to engage with their collections, and audiences. Whether its 3D Hackathons (held to some consternation) or experimentation to replicate a 19th-century statue with 21st century technology, museums are seeing new possibilities for enabling new forms of access to collections, and fresh ways to engage with the public.

    In this episode, the Punks talk to Liz Neely, formerly of the Art Institution of Chicago and President-Elect for the Museum Computer Network (MCN) board and Secretary/Treasurer for the New Media Consortium (NMC) board, and Tom Burtonwood, the first Ryan Center Artist-in-Residence at The Art Institute of Chicago, to unpack digital fabrication processes in museums, and discover how and why museums might want to invest in a 3D printer.
