I was invited to give a talk at the Real-Time Visuals Conference in Newcastle upon Tyne hosted by Northumbria University, Tyneside Cinema, and Culture Lab, Newcastle University.
From the conference website:
Organizer: Steve Gibson
Co-organizers: Atau Tanaka, Dominic Smith
Theme: Real-time Visuals for Performance, Gaming, Installation, and Electronic Environments
Key advancements in real-time graphics and video processing over the past five years have resulted in broad implications for a number of academic, research and commercial communities. They enabled interaction designers, live visualists (VJs), filmmakers, game programmers, and information architects to utilize the power of advanced digital technologies to model, render and effect visual information in real-time. Much of this activity is undocumented, under-theorised and lacking in historical context. The RTV network is an effort to bring live visualists of all stripes together in order to provide a platform for sharing new ideas, technologies and concepts with like-minds and the wider public.
The RTV conference is a two day event in which researchers, artists, designers, musicians and computer scientists will cover a number of topics related to working with visuals in real time.
