Thrilled to have an article "Nuit Blanche & Transformational Publics' in the latest Issue 45: Civic Spectacle Public Journal

Thrilled to have an article "Nuit Blanche & Transformational Publics' in the latest Issue 45: Civic Spectacle Public Journal | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it

Edited by Jim Drobnick and Jennifer Fisher /

 

This issue of PUBLIC considers how large-scale events have challenged conventional understandings of audience, spectacle, and what it means to “view” art. The recent success of Nuit Blanche, for instance, breeds a paradox: in one night, the number of visitors often surpasses the attendance at major art institutions for an entire year. Despite such numbers, this popular exhibition format has so far yielded limited scholarship, which PUBLIC 45 seeks to engage.

 

This issue on Civic Spectacle analyzes the greater context of performances that includes the time-honoured cultural forms of festivals and parades along with more spontaneous and oppositional events, such as flash mobs and activist interventions. Indeed, beyond Nuit Blanche, these types of civic spectacles respond to a situation of urban crisis: the loss of sustainable jobs as tourism and service industries replace manufacturing, the weakened political clout of cities as suburbs and exurbs become wealthier and more populous, and the challenges to retain a sense of community in the stressed circumstances of the downtown core.

Talking Transmedia with Nick DeMartino

Talking Transmedia with Nick DeMartino | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it

Ready for some more transmedia-flavored food for thought?


Well, as a follow-up to yesterday’s Q&A with media specialist Andy Plemmons and as an additional supplement to the transmedia piece in this month’s magazine, here’s a slightly extended conversation with Nick DeMartino, one of the true thought leaders in the field. I became familiar with his insights in this area from a series of widely read, and remarkably accessible, posts that he wrote last year for Tribeca’s “Future of Film” blog. Although DeMartino is not himself an academic, he’s a top consultant specializing in digital production/distribution (which includes transmedia, naturally), and has clearly devoted a lot of time to considering transmedia’s broader ramifications… especially those that relate to the K-12 world.


As one might expect, then, DeMartino, a former SVP of the American Film Institute, has a client list that includes educators as well as media publishers. In fact, he’s speaking this weekend at Wyrd Con, the conference that focuses on multi-platform storytelling in all its dimensions, appearing on a transmedia panel along with Jeff Gomez. If, like me, you won’t be there, here’s a quick chat that nicely complements the other posts in this series…
***


Why is transmedia something that K-12 educators should focus on, not just a buzz-worthy topic that might pertain only to students kids who want to pursue media careers?


NDM: “Transmedia” offers educators a gateway into understanding the fundamentals of storytelling by allowing young people to come to the canon by means of the story form(s) to which they respond the most. Long before the terminology was introduced, teachers found that students often responded more deeply to fictional works by means of the film adaptation. Today we can tell stories (albeit differently) in many different media, powering a new form of “comparative literature.”...
