Attend the Hope or Next Hope Conference
MetadataShow full item record
The main visual theme of the conference is visions of the future from the past, so things that reference The World’s Fairs, The Jetsons, flying cars, DaVinci, Asimov, and so forth would be very appropriate. However, projects are not required to carry the central theme in any way. Some projects, such as OpenAMD, are already being planned to be simply visions of the future from the present, rather than referencing any futurist thoughts from antiquity. Some projects already in the works include… The Attendee Meta-Data Project (“OpenAMD”) An expansion of the RFID crowd tracking project from The Last Hope. Needs programmers and hardware hackers, and is prime for spinoff projects. Many possibilities exist for the development of games, data mining, and visualizations. Ask about the OpenAMD API.

Installations must be technology-based. They can range from electrical experiments to computer-controlled machines, to data and information processing visualizations, they can be static or interactive, and they could be visual or musical, this is a very open field. This is an unpaid exhibition, but the selected installation artists will be given free admission to the conference, and an online gallery with artist biographies will be set up for promotional purposes.
