The Art of Networked Practice Event

Tuesday, March, 10th, 2015

Art of the Network Practice

 

Charlotte will be speaking at this radical online conference in April. Art of the Networked Practice is organised and hosted by artist Randall Packer School of Art, Design & Media at Nanyang Technological University. Doing away with the unsustainable idea of holding a conference in a fixed location, Packer is serving up an entire symposium and participative art project online. Speakers include: Steve Dixon, Jon Cates, Peter Looker, Lev Manovich, Tim White, Anne Balsamo, Deborah Howes, David A. Ross, Anne-Marie Schleiner, Marc Garrett, Ruth Catlow, Alex Adriaansens, Juan Camilo González, Charlotte Frost, Melinda Rackham, McKenzie Wark. In collaboration with arts organization and community Furtherfield The NetArtizens Project will be creating a space for collaborative art creation and discussion.

Charlotte will be talking about the future of academia and her concept of the ‘digital academic’ as part of the ‘Collective Research’ panel at 9.00am on Thursday 2nd April. Here’s the abstract for her talk:

Publishing has long been considered the ultimate academic output. But what should today’s digital academic be making instead of books? In this panel I will talk about my own open, participatory, hybrid learning platforms as publishing alternatives, and begin to define an academic practice that straddles formats, research and publishing, scholarship and service, as well as institutional and disciplinary boundaries.

Check out the rest of the event schedule and then all you need to do is use a time converter to make sure you’re there on time.
