Arts Regional Trust's insight:

Digital Jam's VR Writers Room brings together some of the worlds best writers (including NZ's very own Charlie McDermott - ART Venture 2010 and Hynds Creative Entrepeneur of the Year 2013) working in theatre, immersive/experiential theatre, graphic novels/comic, films, games... to explore the nature of narrative in the medium of VR. Very much looking forward to reading the white paper available sometime after April 2016.

A GitHub for Tech-Friendly Artists? Kadenze Debuts As Arts Edtech Site | Xconomy | Direction Digital | Scoop.it
Stanford University and two California art schools are part of an international consortium of 16 academic institutions partnering with edtech startup Kaden
Arts Regional Trust's insight:

"Art and music have been converging with technology for decades, but Kadenze co-founder Perry Cook says existing online education courses haven’t served tech-oriented artists well. Most edtech sites are geared toward teaching math, business, and programming, he says, while Kadenze aims to create an inspiring environment for artists who manipulate sound, music, video, and digital images."

Carolyn Nelson's curator insight, June 29, 2015 12:24 PM

DiVinci had this idea 400 years ago, and WE are still trying to argue with it.  The creative  sense of the artist is the key to the technology working.  I worked in aerospace for many years as a tech illustrator for Boeing both military and civilian aircraft...one project was moving a hydrolic system on a aircraft to avoid another Sioux City disaster...THAT took the creative artist and the engineers, working together in the design, that in the long run, prevented a disaster. 

Carolyn Nelson's curator insight, June 29, 2015 12:43 PM

Artists are  "Problem Solvers".   Several years ago,  I was called into a friends office that is an architect, that was co principle for a project in the community I lived it, for an art center.  He had to come up with a design for a ceramic and sculpture studio that would allow light, and to keep the studio comfortable by allowing the rising heat to be removed .   I took a look at the design and told him,  "You got a chicken coop!"   We talked about a diferent approach, and I had suggested how about a roof like the Sidney Opera House, dormers on the side to allow light in, with a partician of vents underneath.

 

i spent the weekend, instead of preparing for an internationak trip, assisting making the model for the presentation. The model was approved.

 

The following year, there was a ribbon cutting, and although I was teaching at the center that evening, joined in the celebration, congratulating the architect whose reply was "WE GOT OUR ROOF"

 

My name didn't appear in the credits  it didn't have to.     anyone driving by the Art Armory Center in W. Palm Beach, Florida will see "THE ROOF".
