We are preparing for the Ars Electronica Festival 2020, getting new contributing artists and I finished my media diary.
It has been a very weird and unexpected spring, many changes, different circumstances and moods.
I finished my media diary a few weeks ago when I finally felt that the point had come after publishing 74 videos and photos. I didn’t follow too much of the exact measurements than my own feeling to finish the routine.
Each of us will finish the diary at a different time since the circumstances and situations are very different in different countries. Some other diaries have also their last posts published, but the project continues.
We also got a few new artists on board from Peru and Brazil, looking forward to their new contributions!
Now is the busiest preparation time for the Ars Electronica Festival! COCO-lands will be exhibited in this legendary media art festival as an installation where the visitors can explore the islands with a unique controller.
If you want to hear more about the process and background of this insane project, head to the Agora. Members of the core team and a few contributing artists will present COCO-lands in a short talk.
What I learnt so far?
Making everyday something to be published starts to get very heavy after some weeks. In the beginning I made a mistake by thinking the works should have every day some catch, when the catch is actually the whole pattern of works.
Every project needs a leader, and this kind of very wide project needs to have a curatorial team of five persons. I have been working as a visual communication manager and a coordinator of the web platform from the beginning of the project.
The best part has been to see our platform full of meaningful art by our wonderful contributing artists.
