In other news, as you know next Mon/Tues we all at Ceres, then for Adrian Wed-Friday he’s gone bush with some RMIT types for work stuff. The next Monday is a holiday. That is the week that Adrian will be able to begin marking your work and it will take up to two weeks to be finished.
A folder that contains all the keynote, powerpoint, and PDF presentations from the Ceres Big Day Out, 2013.
Every year in honours the program stumps up the pennies and we spend a day off campus doing research presentations. With numbers somewhat inflated this year our big day out has become a big two day’s out. We’re off to Ceres next Monday and Tuesday, with lunch served for us Monday, and served by us Tuesday.
The schedule is attached…as, OMG a PDF
Date: Wednesday 11 June

Myths of the Near Future:
Social Experiences Mediated by Phone
A workshop led by Katherine Moline, College of Fine Arts,
University of New South Wales
More than ever, people live through and are mediated by mobile phones. Via collective storying, an ethnographic method in design, this workshop will open the phone as a mediated collective zone where participants share stories about changing social interactions and how mobile phones are implicated in these changes. A pre-workshop activity involves shadowing a friend using their mobile phone. In the workshop, we’ll discuss what we saw in the shadowing experience and describe our own phone usage over the previous week. These activities will inform some collective storying about phones. The second half of the workshop offers the opportunity to develop visual narratives with found photos and/or collaboratively create photos of mediated moments with the phone. By interacting with and composing found materials the photos can make legible selected mobile interactions, and the fleeting emotions they invoke. In other words, the workshop collects and produces narratives about mobile phones and images the emotional landscapes they trigger. It will explore how the phone is the prompt and the subject/evidence of our social activity/mediated communication, and maybe even our sole design instrument.
Katherine Moline’s research on experimental practices in art and design is published in journals such as Studies in Material Thinking and Craft and Design Enquiry, and can be found in exhibitions she has curated, including ‘Connections: Experimental Design’ and the forthcoming ‘Feral Experimental’ at Galleries UNSW.
This event is co-presented with the Design Futures Lab and the Design Research Institute.
