Image_lab A new project in the works 20/07/2015
A new section of the art-action.org website is being created. Practices and cultural uses online alter our relationship to images and we want to question this development and its challenges. Image_lab will be developed over a two year period, with the gradual implementation of different modules and their successive versions acting as stages of reflection. The streaming channel, Tv lab, will expand with the hosting of archived debates and round tables which were held as part of the Rencontres Internationales in recent years. The event is attended by over a hundred curators, museum directors and programmers from around the world, who provide an important reflection on contemporary audiovisual and multimedia practices. This expanded version, Tv lab plus, also presents an opportunity to broadcast specific works and allows the user the possibility of sharing the content. In parallel, a video-on-demand platform will be created, intended primarily for media libraries, art schools and universities. An application is being specifically developed to allow anyone to experience the work involved in programming, to express their point of views and to share them. Finally, Skybox will complement this reflection on the dissemination of moving images, through regular screenings and a space to experiment with text, image and sound treatment. Read more L
