Esthetiques speculatives

Douglas Edric Stanley


Le Havre, le volcan

I’ll be in Le Havre for the next two days, participating in the colloquium on “Speculative Aesthetics”, which in reality just means a meeting of the various multimedia professors of french art schools. This will be the seventh meeting of this type, the first beginning in 2000 at the Villa Arson in Nice.

While it is not yet clear where and when exactly I will be talking, I hope to discuss with my french colleagues a certain number of subjects, most of them revolving around open teaching: i.e. using the network to share techniques, documentation, and as a tool for collaboration on projects. This involves Processing, Arduino and eventually OpenFrameworks, but also the tools we use to document our activities using these platforms, and their technical documentation.
