  Untitled 2010  

Alejandro Schianchi , University of Tres de Febrero

The project involves the creation of abstract images and sounds generated by computer with successive deformations, the first with basic three-dimensional shapes and the second with wave modulations. The code becomes as important as the resulting images and sounds, exhibiting it to reveal how they were made, to create variations (remixes), and mainly as an alternative way of distributing audiovisual works.

  Remixing Culture 

Miné Salkin , University of British Columbia

Today's digital world has presented itself with problems of ownership in relation to music production and distribution on the Internet. Focusing on electronic dance music, this project examines the close relationship between music and technology, and the influence that each exerts on the other.

  Killer Fashion Revolution  

Linda Kronman , Aalto University, School of Art and Design, Media Lab

"Killer Fashion Revolution" is a project that consists of artistic workshops, a participatory media-art installation and a wiki based on-line platform. On all these levels, workshop, installation and on-line, participants can explore how a lot of our street fashion has its origins in war. Participants are encouraged to become "Killer Fashion Revolutionists" and transform clothes related to war into garments and artifacts that promote human rights. "Killer Fashion Revolutionists" are fashion hacktivists.
