[MISP] Goodbyes to Eric... Re: [MISP]

Eric...
 
It's been beautiful to see the outpouring of thanks to you as you bid goodbye to the ARTS Lab and the MISP list. I think David expressed my feelings perfectly about all you've contributed and how you'll be missed. On a personal note, I want to give you a huge thank for welcoming me into the New Media community in New Mexico and opening the door for me at UNM. I'll really miss running into you on campus and feel this is a horrible loss for UNM and the ARTS Lab, but a great gain for the NM Tech Council! I'm looking forward to seeing what new miracles you perform, as David puts it, with your "often magician-like hands."
 
Warmest wishes as you move into your new venture!
 
Best,
Carolyn

All of us at ARTS Lab want to express our deepest and
warmest thanks to Eric for what he has done to help the
Lab from concept, to script and staging, to some wonderful
productions during his wildly vibrant tenure. It's
impossible to appreciate any of it without his hands --
often magician-like hands, moving too quickly and away
from attention to be fully recognized.

We give thanks for all the meetings, events, projects and
people Eric has put together (inside the Lab, across
campus(es), within the community and industry.

Fortunate for all of us, his work in the name of a
creative and clean culture and economy for New Mexico
continues at New Mexico Tech Council (if you love him,
support them) and the myriad organizations he was
instrumental in launching.

This MISP-List will continue, though without Eric's lead,
we'll need the community to seed it with the sorts of
information Eric contently provided. And for everyone to
play nice. We're working through what Eric's departure
means to the Lab and how we balance the Big Loss against
the research-oriented (i.e. grant-winning) future we need
to survive in these challenging times.

Lastly and more personally, I want to recognize Eric's
role in our immersive media work; namely:
- DomeFest, our global fulldome festival has always been
enriched by Eric. (DF returns 09.2011).
- Tales of the Maya Skies, the NSF-funded film has a bunch
of Eric in it. (Go see it at the Planetarium at the
Natural History Museum.
http://nmnaturalhistory.org/planetarium)
- His efforts in getting the grant for our new NSF-funded
research in collaboration with sf_X and IAIA. (Teaser demo
video: http://artslab-test.unm.edu/domegl/node/84 )

None of these would be what they are without the
indefatigable one. We're going to miss him here in the
Lab, but intend to continue supporting him and his work.

In a parting word: ARTS Lab will be less rich without you,
Eric Renz-Whitmore. Thank you.

bueno brother,
Your ARTS Lab Amigos

Thanks to everyone for their warm wishes -- but you know how I hate cluttering people's in-boxes :)

There really are too many people to thank, and I'm not really departing, just leaving this role (I expect I'll be lurking myself for a while).

However, there are three people I have to note.

As founding Director of ARTS Lab and a real mentor to me, Ed Angel probably gave me way too much latitude, but his personal desire to connect talented kids with a satisfying future doing work they enjoy here in New Mexico is really at the core of what we've been trying to do.

The direct link from industry, education and the wider community to state government, embodied in Eric Witt is truly indispensable.  Knowing we've had the ear of a supportive Governor and that someone is actively working to ensure our place on a frighteningly long list of agenda items has been essential.

Thinking back to how these lists began and how the Media Industries Strategy moved into implementation, I'm reminded that David Breecker really saw how all the pieces fit together in a very practical way, and really instilled many of the basic principles still in effect today.   

Thanks again and best wishes to all!

Eric

Hi folks...

I hope you're all doing well.

As several folks know, my last full day with UNM's ARTS Lab was yesterday; on Monday I start working as the Executive Director for the New Mexico Tech Council.  With that move, I'll no longer be the "moderator" of these lists.  I put that in quotes because they've only rarely needed any real moderation, and it's been a privilege to work with such a hard-working group, committed to doing good work and building the various parts of our film and media community.

For my part, I'll continue to be involved with several of the digital media groups, particularly the New Mexico Post Alliance (membership kickoff August 6th), Rio Grande IGDA (NM Game Jam in Albuquerque, Las Cruces & Santa Fe, August 13-15th) and Rio Grande SIGGRAPH (SIGGRAPH/Conference Recap, August 21) -- all of which are committed to building skills and opportunities for digital content creators statewide.

And things at ARTS Lab are going well too, particularly in the area of developing content, software and systems for fulldome and "immersive media".  Between Director Tim Castillo, Associate Director David Beining and the small but hardy team, I expect we'll be seeing a few more pieces of very exciting news in the months to come.

There's too many people to mention and thank though, and this might not be the right time anyway.  Perhaps more now and in the next several months than ever before, we face a direct challenge to the incentives at the core of New Mexico's film and media business -- and the educational programs at all levels that serve them.  I look forward to working with you all to strengthen what we have and continue to build ways for people throughout New Mexico to participate.

Meanwhile, should you have any questions regarding use of the list, etc., please contact artslab@unm.edu

And thanks again,

Eric

[MISP] Retrieving Humanity tonight - a sneak peak!

***MISP-EVENTS-L is an announcement only listserv*** *

From Ethan Bach about tonight's "Retrieving Humanity" show at the Santa Fe Complex:


Hello everyone - don't forget about Retrieving Humanity tonight 7pm to 9pm a the Santa Fe Complex.
FInd the attached images as a sneak peak of the show.
Also check out the article on the show in the Pasatiempo.
This is one show you will not want to miss! 

Retrieving Humanity, an event with international connection and artistic expression, interactive media art, and collective art creation on a global scale

See you there! Make sure to bring a friend and bring your flip cam, your iphone - anything that records!


Retrieving Humanity is a one-of-a-kind interactive performance and installation that will bring live streaming video and audio from around the world to Santa Fe.

This new concept of storytelling will allow the audience, by participation, to explore and express connections with their community and the world at large.

Through the use of cutting-edge technology, including custom-made software, motion sensors, media streaming, computer networking, and DJ and VJ (video jockey) software, Retrieving Humanity pushes the boundaries of art, technology, and communication.

Retrieving Humanity will address the difference between viewing culture from the outside or engaging with it as a participant. The audience will be encouraged to explore these differing attitudes and test the traditional boundary between audience and performer by becoming a participant.

Santa Fe Complex will be transformed into an immersive space with a promenade of six kiosks, each with unique video and audio from around the world. At the end of the promenade will be a large screen displaying a mix of this visual information.

As participants approach each kiosk they witness various live scenes from around the world. They see and hear a festival in Bologna, a street in Baghdad, a dance club in Berlin, a sleeping apartment dweller in Toyko, each offering a portrayal of different experiences occurring at the same moment.

At one kiosk the participants' image is added to the video to include them in the scene, at another kiosk the participant picks up a tea pot and changes the the view from black and white to color, and at another kiosk the closer you get to the screen the more the video comes into focus. The streaming video, along with the influences the audience have created are mixed by a DJ and VJ and projected onto the large screen and the audio mix is played through large speakers. This collaboratively created video allows the participant to realize that they are involved in a much more complex system outside of themselves.

Retrieving Humanity creates a collaborative workspace that encourages the exploration of innovative technologies which enable social understanding and cooperation. It explores virtual and physical spaces that use advanced computational tools, artistic creation, education, problem solving, and group development. In addition, learning opportunities will be available for the public through workshops, lectures and the performance itself. Students from SFCCIAIA, and NMHU will not only benefit from these same learning experiences, but will also be able to work hands on with the creators of Retrieving Humanity.

Our expectation for Retrieving Humanity is that it will open doors of communication and provide a contemporary view on how cultures interconnect. Through these connections a new, communal story is created from the personal expressions of individuals around the world and in Santa Fe. Communities, near and far, will learn there are new modes of interaction and experience which can reduce the real distances between them.

Through reaching out and engaging, instead of remaining a silent observer, participants will realize that there are new possibilities for connecting with the world around them. The success of the piece will be demonstrated by the interactions of the community, participants and students both during and after the exhibition. Through direct communication and experience we will know if the public has discovered new opportunities to make connections and if students have been inspired to use technology to have a stronger relationship with the world

Hi Eric,
 
I came along late in your tenue at ARTS and the MISP list, however I wanted to thank you for the assistance you have offered and the great resourse you have been.
 
So, best to you in your new professional endeavors and expanding falmily.  I am sure we will continue to run into one another in the many fields of filmmaking you have touched and will surely continue to  so.
 
Please consider me as a resource in the future and let's stay in touch.
 
As they say in Old Mexico, "Viaja Bonito!"
 
Cordially,

Hi folks...

I hope you're all doing well.

As several folks know, my last full day with UNM's ARTS Lab was yesterday; on Monday I start working as the Executive Director for the New Mexico Tech Council.  With that move, I'll no longer be the "moderator" of these lists.  I put that in quotes because they've only rarely needed any real moderation, and it's been a privilege to work with such a hard-working group, committed to doing good work and building the various parts of our film and media community.

For my part, I'll continue to be involved with several of the digital media groups, particularly the New Mexico Post Alliance (membership kickoff August 6th), Rio Grande IGDA (NM Game Jam in Albuquerque, Las Cruces & Santa Fe, August 13-15th) and Rio Grande SIGGRAPH (SIGGRAPH/Conference Recap, August 21) -- all of which are committed to building skills and opportunities for digital content creators statewide.

And things at ARTS Lab are going well too, particularly in the area of developing content, software and systems for fulldome and "immersive media".  Between Director Tim Castillo, Associate Director David Beining and the small but hardy team, I expect we'll be seeing a few more pieces of very exciting news in the months to come.

There's too many people to mention and thank though, and this might not be the right time anyway.  Perhaps more now and in the next several months than ever before, we face a direct challenge to the incentives at the core of New Mexico's film and media business -- and the educational programs at all levels that serve them.  I look forward to working with you all to strengthen what we have and continue to build ways for people throughout New Mexico to participate.

Meanwhile, should you have any questions regarding use of the list, etc., please contact artslab@unm.edu

And thanks again,

Eric

Re: [MISP] semi-personal update

Jim, seconded here. Eric's "In the Wind" is a dark, twisted and gorgeous story.  

It has been shot, and I think edited, but I'm not sure where things stand beyond that. Eric can comment more --but might not! LOL...

did the sound design and music for Tricklock's staging, and was on board as composer for the film version. I hope it is resurrected.

Eric will hate me bringing this up again, but now that he's officially unhinged from this group, perhaps he's more likely to find an opportunity for his MOST EXCELLENT FUTURISTIC SCRIPT which I saw performed a few years ago, at Tricklock. It was gripping, and at least as interesting as any of the big-budget Hollywood action flicks that have been filmed in New Mexico. (Eric – if you ever want to do a staged reading and need a reader – I'm in!)

Eric,

 

Sincerest thanks and kudos on behalf of myself and Cinnafilm for your honest, non-biased support and hard work over the years keeping this community informed and focused on new media and new technologies as they emerge.  I would remind everyone on this list that contributing your own time and energy to the greater good is always something that pays off in the end, and is something that is distinctly American that we must all embrace.  We should take a page from Eric's book and find a local group, or technology organization(s), that contributes to driving these new technologies into New Mexico permanently and volunteer time to become involved and stand behind them.   As much as anyone on this list I know how hard it is to dedicate personal time and resources when I am stretched so thin I can see through myself, but without such causes and our dedication to them our business "soil" would remain dry and arid.  We must create what it is we seek through hard work, and if that is a sustainable media/film/post/gaming/web/etc work environment then it is up to all of us to take the torch, volunteer, and build up the memberships of the great organization we (and in many cases Eric and others from the MISP past) have started.  Otherwise Eric's time and all of our time on this list would have been wasted, and that would simply be unacceptable.

 

Onward.

Thanks to everyone for their warm wishes -- but you know how I hate cluttering people's in-boxes :)

There really are too many people to thank, and I'm not really departing, just leaving this role (I expect I'll be lurking myself for a while).

However, there are three people I have to note.

As founding Director of ARTS Lab and a real mentor to me, Ed Angel probably gave me way too much latitude, but his personal desire to connect talented kids with a satisfying future doing work they enjoy here in New Mexico is really at the core of what we've been trying to do.

The direct link from industry, education and the wider community to state government, embodied in Eric Witt is truly indispensable.  Knowing we've had the ear of a supportive Governor and that someone is actively working to ensure our place on a frighteningly long list of agenda items has been essential.

Thinking back to how these lists began and how the Media Industries Strategy moved into implementation, I'm reminded that David Breecker really saw how all the pieces fit together in a very practical way, and really instilled many of the basic principles still in effect today.   

Thanks again and best wishes to all!

Eric
