Panel2: Thursday 19 July 4:30 – 6pm

Fan Culture and Gaming
Dr Celia Pearce SMARTlab & Georgia Tech

A presentation of groundbreaking work on ‘Designing Unconventional Games Using Conventional Game Engines’, using her Mermaids game and other Ludica co-productions amongst her examples.

Play Communities
Kristyna Nyzell SMARTlab/LEGO

We explore the uses of LEGO and other play- and learning tools, and their cultural implications for business development, gender and education, and creative innovation.

Gaming and Playculture
Dr Mary Flanagan SMARTlab & Tiltfactor presenting by remote, live from New York
Playculture is a contested arena of ordinary, day-to-day computer-based activities that have passed as invisible and unimportant, even left out of, historical accounts of everyday life. We seek to reassess its value and importance to physical and digital cultural practices.

The Performance of Play
Emma Westecott (Synergy, University of Wales, Newport)
A key dynamic of play is the active involvement of the player in the ongoing evolution of form; the modern player collides with the game system to create the media experience. This performance blurs the boundaries between producer and consumer in that the player simultaneously takes on both roles within the game. As a player I am both producing my experience in the ways in which I express my skill within a particular game play moment whilst simultaneously consuming the results of my actions.

Role-play and Dress-up in Game
Jacki Morie (SMARTlab) presenting by remote, live from Los Angeles
How and why do we dress up to present in Avatar, and in daily life? We discuss the importance of dress-up play as an important form of adult play in both physical and digital cultural practices.

Over 80 London-based knowledge transfer professionals gathered on July 10 for an informal evening of networking and entertainment at KnowledgeLondon’s Summer Party.

Hosted on a rare sunny evening by the University of Westminster, the event boasted of the outstanding projects and ideas which are continuing to emerge from London’s knowledge base.

Felicity Harvest, Executive Director of the Arts Council England, South East, opened the occasion with a few words which emphasized the importance of creative projects conceived and developed in London’s Higher Education institutions to the UK economy.

“The Arts Council has recently published a strategy which recognises that Knowledge Transfer is one of the main areas of growth available and has the potential to be a major point of connection between the higher education sector and the arts and cultural sectors,” she said. “There are many excellent examples of collaborations in design, fashion, media and technology which are beginning to have an impact not only on the students but also on the industries that employ them.”

The audience was captivated by a showcase from the SMARTLab Digital Institute, which aims to find innovative solutions to community issues by employing new, creative technology. Professor Lizbeth Goodman, SMARTLab’s Founder and Director, presented an incredible eye-scanning technology which has allowed a man with severe cerebral palsy to write and play music using only his eyes. After performing a delicate balancing-act dance with Bobby Byrne, her colleague and disabled dancer, Goodman explained the importance of enabling people with disabilities to participate in creative activities. “We’re all dancing on the inside,” she said. “It’s important that every person, regardless of ability, is able to express themselves.”

Other exhibits included Communication-Wear, a jacket with interwoven mobile technology, which allows expressive messages to be conveyed using implanted electronic textile sensors, developed by Central Saint Martins; a novel flexible sheet structure that can be applied to limb and neck fractures by Brunel’s Wolfson Centre; and UCL’s Boomcube, which, according to Chief Engineer, Bradford Backus, is the world’s best portable iPod speaker system. Newham College of Further Education was also on hand to parade intricately designed dresses and demonstrate the increasing benefit of furthering knowledge transfer links between Further Education Institutions and industry.

The evening was well received by all who attended. Backus, who had been unsure of what he might gain from a networking event, admitted that he was very pleasantly surprised. “It was a well-run event and I made contacts which might be very useful to us.” Michelle Flinn, from the Roehampton School of Arts, said “the whole event was very useful and a great opportunity to network.”

Music from the eyes – world premiere from SMARTlab at UEL

A unique new performance using innovative digital media technology has been staged by researchers at the SMARTlab Digital Media Institute at the University of East London (UEL).

The InterFACES research team, led by Professor Lizbeth Goodman and Dr Mick Donegan at UEL’s SMARTlab Digital Media Institute, has developed a new creative technology application which allows disabled people to express themselves by writing and playing music with their eyes.

Dr Donegan and his team designed a new set of communication grids and a ‘soundboard’ or ‘eye harp’ designed for use on the Mytobii eye scanning system and devised a musical interface with member of Irish band KILA.

At the premiere showcase event for the project, Mr James Brosnan – a core researcher and ‘alpha user’ of the system, who has severe Cerebral Palsy and is therefore usually limited to interfaces using his controllable physical movements via a neck switch- was for the first time able to play music using eye control.

Performing a live jam with local musician Maciej Hrybowicz, Brosnan amazed his audience with the unique tune he created by selecting different sampled melodies from the digital panel in front of his eyes.

This adds a whole new element of emotional and aesthetic cues to the synthesized voice and text that were previously Mr Brosnan’s main communication forms. What is more, the eye scanning system allows for a level of physical relaxation and comfort that he feels is much better for his health and well being.

Mr Toby Borland of SMARTlab’s MAGICbox technology studio also explained at the show how some of the creative tools required for this project were designed and produced in house, at UEL: proposing a whole new business model for assistive technology that can be both affordable and accessible to all.

The next show is scheduled for Prague, where the team has been invited to present two major research papers at the Leonardo journal special anniversary event, to be held in Prague this November. Some of Mr Brosnan’s poetry will be shared along with a full musical jam for that event, where the SMARTlab’s TRUST Project team will also introduce their work on haptics and robotics for young people with disabilities.

This phase of the InterFACES project was made possible by the Promising Researcher Fund of UEL, drawing on linked research at SMARTlab funded by BBC R&D ad NESTA, and in collaboration with the Oxford ACE Centre and Dr Donegan’s work on the European Commission’s COGAIN Project.

The Mytobii system has been on loan to Mr Brosnan from its developers in and is soon due for return. SMARTlab is seeking further support to purchase a system for Mr Brosnan so that he can continue his writing and music making, as well as for further software development of a research system to be used at SMARTlab and on mobile visits to local East London schools and hospitals where other creative people might require use of this novel communications and creativity tool.

Bridging the Digital Divide: Dancing with Hands, Legs, and Wheels
From ESIWiki

‘The Digital Divide’ is a term most often used to describe the gap between the ‘haves and have-nots’ of technology provision – the chasm that still looms large between the ‘developed and developing worlds’. But for many, that divide is a physical one, and is located much closer to home. Whether it is the empty IT cupboard at a local school or community centre, or the view from the cameras rigged atop the Olympic site viewing tower, there is not yet anything like an even and accessible ‘ramp’ between rich and poor, privilege, ability and access.This lecture will be spoken, sung, and animated with live interaction from dancer/choreographer Bobby Byrne & musician/composer Colm O’Snodaigh of KILA. Our work together for the past four years has involved ‘dancing with legs, wheels and hands’ in many countries, and applying the practices of inclusive performance and universal design to the theory and emerging scholarly field which we call, ‘the Informatics of Bodies in Space and Time’.

Dr. Lizbeth Goodman

Founder and Director of Safespaces.Net
and Director of the SMARTlab Digital Media Institute UK, wears the Safetywear Line v2.0

http://www.safespaces.net

Safeywear for the SafetyNET Project: high fashion providing and hiding safety technologies to help stop violence against women and children worldwide.

SafetyWEAR is designed for two purposes:
to promote the project’s work with a smart, fashionable line that women of all ages, sizes and backgrounds can comfortably wear; and to provide ‘undercoverwire’ wearable technology tools and triggers to connect to the SafetyNET online, without wearers being noticeable or audible while making their request for help. SafetyNET is a global cyber cafe project that uses the power of new technologies to help stop violence against women and children, quietly linking them to information about domestic violence through online access. In the “safe spaces” of moderated chat rooms, participants communicate with domestic violence specialists, volunteer attorneys, survivors of abuse, and mentors. The project is operating in North America, North Africa and throughout Europe. First phase installations are underway in Asia and Latin America.

SafetyNET/SMARTlab with Bodkin Designs, Gayil Nalls, BBC & UCD present the Undercoverwire Corset & Bodice, hiding a spatial sensing system that anybody can access and use, designed to help a woman in need find a safe space un her physical world without setting off alarms. . .

The Corset and Bodice are washable and come in many fabrics and styles suitable to day wear in the developing world as well. Corset and Bodice with SMARTglove hiding wires and camoflauging the handheld screen, all by by Tara and Kathy Mooney of Bodkin Designs Dublin, with bespoke JET wifi/Bluetooth/gprs-mobile enabled rescue & escape system by Jose Marinez.

Also on show is the amazing Pendant Flacon by artist Gayil Nalls, holding the world social sculpture World Sensorium scent, a mix of the scent imprints of 230 countries statically formulated as one incredible signature scent.

The World Sensorium scentworks are held in the Scentscory bag with LED display, made by Katherine Milton as part of the Ludica Wearables workshop.

World Sensorium – In the spirit of planetary good will, fills the auditorium with paperworks embedded with the World Sensorium, created by Gayil Nalls. Share in a collective memory of the world as one. Keep one and breath in the scent of non-violence.

Presentation supported by

SMARTlab & L Microsoft, with thanks to Ludica, @Lab, Bodkin Designs, BBC R&D and UCD.
