City Lights Orchestra Device (CLOD)

Tue, 05 Dec 2017 16:36:03 +0000

Date: 17 September - 22 September 2017

CLOD residency


CLOD is the continuation of a series of projects by Antoine Schmitt exploring the concept of a light pulse visible in the city; first with City Sleep Light, showed at iMAL in 2010, then with City Light Orchestra in 2012. CLOD extends even more the distribution and portability of the light sources; pulsing with the same frequency, they create a sort of visual symphony spread over the city.

Launch of the EASTN-DC EU project!

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 15:41:42 +0000

The 4-years EASTN-DC (European Art Science Technology Network for Digital Creativity) project aims to stimulate and support the next digital revolution. It proposes to experiment in the artistic and cultural field a new methodology that combines five essential poles: Research, Creation, Pedagogy, Sharing, and Economy. iMAL is one of the 17 partners of the European-wide EASTN-DC network. Each of these partners is expert in the field of art, science, technology, education or dissemination. They will bring together their expertise to organise creators' residencies and public presentations of the resulting creations. Creative Europe Under the coordination of ACROE ("Association for Creation and Research on Expression Tools", Grenoble, France), the EASTN-DC project is one of the 15 "large scale" projects selected in 2017 by the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA) among 548 responses to the call Creative Europe - Culture. The Creative Europe - Culture program aims to support projects focusing on transnational mobility, audience development (accessible and inclusive culture) and capacity building. One of the major challenges of the EASTN-DC project is the development of the digital creativity audience. In parallel with the size or diversity of audiences, it is important to foster the quality of digital creativity knowledge by everyone. EASTN-DC builds on the European Art-Science-Technology Network (EASTN). Launched in 2014, EASTN has supported residencies for 40 European artists or collectives, and the creation of numerous innovative pieces.
