With the appearance of free public accessible streaming technologies
of Web 2.0 technologies, individuals and groups will have the
possibility to participate, experience and manipulate remote events in
real time. In the near future telepresence communication systems will
be incorporated within everyday life. This phenomena will dramatically
transform how we communicate and experience remote environments,
cultural events and social interaction.

This workshop/performance aims to create an atmosphere for stimulating
interaction and discussion among persons interested in Immersive
Telepresence. The workshop will include a presentation by Claudio
Rivera-Seguel about recent new media projects of interactive streaming
performances such as: OrganiRandom, DigitalChile_08 and Vision

The workshop will give an overview about different platforms used for
immersive telepresence and examine some of their interactive
methodologies. It will also introduce the audience to some of the
basics of real-time broadcasting and recording techniques in low and
high definition streaming. Finally the workshop will offer
participants the opportunity to become an active part of the
live-performance with artists from Chile and Canada, which aims to
promote the web-base relational art project called Bypass2010.

The goal of this workshop is to introduce participants to the basic
concepts and techniques of telepresence and to bringing together a
group of multidisciplinary creative professionals who are working with
or are interested in the different aspects of communication
technologies in order to experiment and collaborate in an immersive
telepresence interactive environment.

WORKSHOP: September 14th 7:00:00 PM @ Galata Perform
