Armidale Open Source Project

Posted: December 12, 2011 in Uncategorized

Here’s the Geeks-In-Residence Armidale Community Arts Project, which culminated in a showcase of works and project documentation on December 17th, 2011.

SVM provided logistical support to the project as the local contact for the Artist-In-Residence, Julian Stadon (Curtin University, Dorkbot and now teaching at University of Salzburg )

As Resident Geek, Julian has run a series of workshops and has collaborated with a number of locals in the creation of content for high speed broadband delivery via the NBN network from the NBN Smart House in Armidale. Julian and I curated  and insatlled the final exhibition/showcase.

Here is Sue Fell who live streamed performance to the showcase via Skype, well before streaming had become common place. These days it’s so much silmpler thanks to technologies like Zoom . The piece was called I am Object I am Data I am Memory – a live changing display of some of her collectables.

The piece explored domestic objects as repositories of memory & nostalgia.


The project was funded by the Australia Council through their Digital & Media Arts initiative.
