opencurateitA few places are still avilable on an Augmented Reality Workshop next week at FACT Liverpool. 

Tamiko Thiel from Manifest.AR will be giving a workshop on making augmented reality applications using Layar. Check out the work that Manifest.AR have done ‘re-curating’ high art spaces using this technology.

More details below

 

In this workshop participants will learn how to create simple location-based augmented reality artworks using the free platform Layar (www.layar.com). The first evening will teach the basics of location-based AR; on the second evening partipants should bring material to create their own works, which we will place in FACT and the surrounding city.

A founding member of the cyberartist group Manifest.AR, Thiel will be starting two collaborative projects with FACT as part of the Manifest.AR ARtSense commission, with a scheduled exhibition at FACT in March 2013. She and another 4 Manifest.AR artists will be back in Liverpool from 11th-22nd June to do further work these and other projects. AR Workshop participants are gladly invited to collaborate!

Prerequisites:

- Basic image processing (Photoshop etc) and basic PC knowledge needed. No programming or 3D knowledge necessary, but if you have it you can do more complicated works on your own.

- Smartphone (Android or iPhone4) or iPad2 necessary – or else bring a friend who has one and with whom you can work together!

- Laptop or there are 12 computers available to use

    Satirical magazine Defcon is looking to launch itself into the internet age and is seeking local writers to get involved. 

    After a long, long hiatus Defcon magazine is planning an online magazine and a fanzine. The original magazine's focus on what could be described as something between satire and therapy will still be in there, but it will also have a broader cultural focus. It will be North-West centric but highly international. If you imagine that it is as focussed on the North West as a gritty ITV detective series might be, but understands that there are policemen everywhere, then you will be close enough to the truth. The North West focus will predominately be within features, previews and interviews. Other sections will be a free for all.
