Programme | eCulture Fair 2010
Over three days the fair will be open from 10:00 – 20:00 h at the Dortmunder U. On each day, from 10:00 to 16:30 h, various developers and laboratories will introduce their latest applications, tools or work methods in live presentations, while a wide range of cultural projects will be shown in the exhibition area. There will be possibilities in the evenings for more in-depth discussions.
The multimedia festival Prototypen:// from the Labor für sensorische Annehmlichkeiten (the Sensory Amenities Lab) is being held on the Leonie-Reygers-Terrasse at the main entrance. In front of the Dortmunder U, those in possession of an iPhone or Android enabled phone can play with huge Augmented Reality toy blocks. Likewise in an outdoor area right next to the U, a truck trailer with an oversized, interactive video screen conceived by the Dropstuf team is parked – ideal for playful manipulation and public interactive engagement. And if you ever wonder what it would be like to look out from another person’s head, in W(double U) users can experience this walking around in the Dortmunder U linked to someone else using the newest immersive technology developed by Crew in collaboration with the Expertise Centre for Digital Media, University of Hasselt, Belgium. The closing party of the E-CULTURE FAIR 2010 on 25th August, starting at 21:00 h, opens with large interactive video projections on the facade of the office building adjacent to the Dortmunder U. The projections can be played by the audience from small stages in front of the facade. The project is developed by MediaLAB (Hogeschool van Amsterdam). From 23:00 h the vaulted cellar under the Dortmunder U opens and provides an opportunity to get to know each other enjoying electronic music. The final party is jointly organized with ISEA2010 RUHR.
10:00 – 16:30
