Call for artful post-TV scenarios: LinkedTV supported competition MEDIADROM *extended to August 9*

Current research groups and projects aim at defin­ing the future of the TV, tak­ing into con­sid­er­a­tion the wide spread­ing use of the sec­ond screen, and behav­ioral and social inter­ac­tion inher­ited from highly inter­ac­tive video games merg­ing with on-demand video ser­vices, and com­plex sto­ry­telling tech­nolo­gies out of which cre­ative trains of thoughts emerge. New media artists bring mean­ing to tech­nolo­gies by adapt­ing or repur­pos­ing these, by own­ing glitches, and by instill­ing into their art­works cues of social and polit­i­cal issues of the cur­rent, past and future days.

The pur­pose of the MEDIADROM competition is to push the con­verg­ing bound­aries of Inter­net and TV tech­nolo­gies beyond liv­ing rooms. Cre­ative artists are invited to chal­lenge the tech­nolo­gies deliv­ered from the LinkedTV project by imag­in­ing sce­nar­ios of inter­ac­tive instal­la­tions and per­for­mances, with rich media con­tent navigation/recomposition, query­ing the Inter­net for unex­pected connections.

Please consult the contest and submission pages for further information. Deadline for a concept paper is 9 August! Accepted competition finalists will be supported by LinkedTV to present their concept at a MMM2014 special session  and to implement it at a dedicated artists residence in Mons, Belgium.
