HUMO: A mobile platform for the rapid deployment of huge images.
Master class with Rafael Lozano-Hemmer
Ars Electronica Center, Linz, 3 - 7 February 2003


This intensive experimental workshop will invite participants to develop 
and present urban interventions using a mobile platform for the projection 
of huge images. Basically, we will place the world's most powerful 
projector (which produces 60 x 60 metre images with over 100,000 ANSI lumen 
intensity) on the back of a pick-up truck together with a diesel generator, 
a GPS tracker, a pan/tilt platform and an assortment of lenses. The project 
will consist of rapid deployment of strategic images to transform urban 
landscapes. Logos, emblematic buildings, quotidian spaces, suburban malls, 
advertising billboards, etcetera will be the targets of unannounced, 
unregulated ephemeral interventions. Documentation of these projects will 
be an integral part of the workshop, as the conditions of possibility of 
legal/political/aesthetic viability are fast, short interventions below the 
radar of potential regulators.

The workshop will have the following sections:
1. Theory and precedents, imparted by Rafael Lozano-Hemmer and theorist 
Brian Massumi
2. City scouting
3. Conception and development
4. HUMO realization
5. Documentation and publication

The HUMO workshop is limited to 10 participants. We seek to attract a 
diverse group of professional artists who may have already worked with 
public space and who are comfortable working with digital imaging. The 
participants will be selected by evaluating a statement of interest (Max. 
500 words) and a curriculum, which should emphasize previous works that 
might illustrate technical or conceptual resonance with the HUMO workshop.

The HUMO master class is an EncART project supported by the European

Collaboration between developers and artists from different disciplines 
often results in merged media or new media formats. 'Media Knitting' is a 
three-day hands-on workshop for artists, engineers, and designers working 
with software to knit various media formats and applications together for 
live or real-time interactive performances. The scope of the media used for 
collaboration in 'Media Knitting' will include video, streaming media, 
audio and 3D modelling. In this workshop thirty participants can work 
together to discover and patch each other's disciplines together by means 
of software and human interaction. Several experts will be brought in from 
the commercial software field for Mac and Windows as well as from the field 
of open source and free software. Among the software facilitated for this 
workshop are Max-MSp, Jitter, V2_Jam, PD, Blender, Cyclops, BigEye, 
gstreamer, Nato, MoB, FreeJ and Touch 101.

The participants and the workshop leaders will work together to realize 
performances or media jam sessions. The end result of the workshop will be 
presented in an informal media concert open to the audience of the Dutch 
Electronic Art Festival 2003 (DEAF03).

Participants are encouraged to bring their own laptop and software.

Application forms for participants can be found on 
Application is possible until 15 January 2003.
