The streets and sidewalks were lined with 23 different interactive projects, each representing an early stage of what its creators imagined could go viral, improving neighborhoods and cities across the country and the world.

 

In the alleys behind the San Francisco Chronicle building, an unusual part of town where capital-rich startups flank skeezy porn shops and dollar stores, an experiment was going on. Music from DJs accented the sounds of a warm Saturday afternoon, accompanying 23 interactive project mockups that lined the streets and sidewalks, each representing an early stage of what its creators imagined could become a viral improvement to neighborhoods and cities across the country and the world.

 

This was the second-ever Urban Prototyping Festival (the first was held in Singapore earlier this year), a one-day event that was the culmination of several months of open-call development, plus a weekend-long makeathon contest.

 

“[The projects] have all been created, from the ground up, in the last two months,” said Jake Levitas, research director for the Gray Area Foundation for the Arts, which instigated the festival and enlisted the help of six other organizations. “Everything’s going to disappear as quickly as it appeared. At 10 p.m., it’ll be gone.”...

Virtual reality enhances the big screen at Tribeca Film Festival

Virtual reality enhances the big screen at Tribeca Film Festival | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it
A 360-degree filming of NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” 40th Anniversary Special will allow viewers to shift the direction of the camera at will. Some have used the feature to train the camera away from performers like Jerry Seinfeld so they can ogle famous audience members like Larry David and Michael Douglas whispering to each other and fixing their hair.
“Maybe this is a little film-geeky, but VR is really challenging the language of cinema in a big way,” says Ingrid Kopp, director of interactive at the Tribeca Film Institute.
“It takes away the frame, it takes away the edits,” Kopp said. ‘This is the time when the future Martin Scorseses are going to be testing the waters and showing some of their early work in VR.”

This Is How We'll Experience Storytelling in the Future | WIRED | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it
A new exhibition looks at ways storytelling will change in years to come.

 

IN THE FUTURE, you won’t just consume stories by watching a movie or tuning into a podcast via earbuds. You’ll be standing in the middle of them—maybe you’ll even be able to see the blurry  tip of your nose in front of you—with panoramic vision, perhaps a sense of smell, and maybe even the slight feeling of vertigo. “Originally stories were living things,” says Charlie Melcher. “It was a dialogue, something you could interrupt, or physically respond to.” Melcher thinks that sort of interactivity is exactly what the future holds...."

Very cool. Videogame based on Borges short story is in fact Borgesian

Very cool. Videogame based on Borges short story is in fact Borgesian | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it
The Statement of Randolph Carter

Robert Yang hopes that players of his latest game called Intimate, Infinite can be "patient" with its experimental nature. He made it across three months for makega.me's "Series" pageant, and is a multiple adaptation of Jorge Luis Borges's short story, The Garden of Forking Paths.... 

more...
Vivalist's curator insight, April 13, 9:07 AM

"What Intimate, Infinite explores through the framework of The Garden of Forking Paths is how videogames allow us to experiment with alternative narratives and the infinite. Save states are good examples of this, as they allow us to load up a previous point in a narrative and explore its other possibilities. Likewise, checkpoints let us change the future by rewinding time and retrying to overcome what previously killed us.

Intimate, Infinite also goes far beyond speaking about videogames, and just like the riddles and textual puzzles that Borges employs, it introduces philosophical concepts such as modal logic, time paradoxes, and the ontology of possibility. It's an enigmatic text that has us think outside of our own linearity, but it always comes back to the same ending despite suggesting many other possibilities—it's made for interpretation; a starting point for complex thought."

"Today’s digital natives have grown up online and consequently consider the online world to be primary while the physical world is secondary, the exact opposite of their parents’ priorities. No matter how much the older generation moralises against this shift of world view, the younger generation will win out simply because it has become more rewarding and relevant to view the virtual world as the real one. And learning from history, there is no turning back. However this does not mean that the physical world is of no interest to the digital natives. Rather it is now viewed with a completely different set of glasses, mainly as a playground where virtual fantasies can be be staged..."
