[Yasmin_announcements] delphus 09

Delphus project 09 : IN BETWEEN
A Socrates-Erasmus Intensive Programme (9 - 21 July 2009) in Delphi.

This is the fourth meeting between Art Schools (Athens School of Fine
Arts, multimedia lab / Department art and Technology of the Image,
University Paris 8 / Master Artes Visuales y Multimedia of University
of Valencia) /ERSEP Ecole Régionale Supérieure d'Expression Plastique
Tourcoing ) and its main goal is the development of a virtual space
suitable for artistic education, collaboration and research.

The main purpose of our efforts up to now has been a virtual space
that is not a copy of reality, as most of existing virtual spaces. In
this way, we will avoid restricting constraints, resulting in a space
open to any kind of mental adventure or to the discovery of new
concepts or actions that result from experimental audiovisual
creation, creation of synthetic 3D images and original programming

Towards this end, we are avoiding to use conventional structures like
earth ground and laws governing it (e.g. gravity or wall collisions),
or social conventions (e.g. the recreation of existing urbanisms or

C. IN-BETWEEN - The In-Between project is a collaborative project for
the creation of multicultural virtual neighborhoods on the Web. It
started as an initiative of the Multimedia - Hypermedia Lab of the
Athens School of Fine Arts, and has gradually become an open platform
for artistic experimentation, including participants from different
Universities (see link participants). The participants can insert an
audiovisual description of their house, different audiovisual elements
as well as other information, to the dynamic database and their house
automatically becomes member of the endless neighborhood Moreover,
some of the participants have used the InBetween platform as an
environment for artistic experimentation, thus resulting in different
conceptual levels. (Athens School of Fine Arts 2007 - 2009 / Phd of
Nefeli Dimitriadi at University Paris 8 )

D. MYSQUARE - (is a new level of IN-BETWEEN platform) a virtual square
