|[Nettime-nl] [Waag] 3rd International Browserday - Amsterdam May 19th|
A N N OU N C E M E N T THE SOCIETY FOR OLD AND NEW MEDIA, DE BALIE, PARADISO AND NL DESIGN PRESENT 3RD INTERNATIONAL BROWSERDAY - 19 MAY 2000 PARADISO AMSTERDAM For the third consecutive year the Society for Old and New Media, presents in co-operation with De Balie, Paradiso and NL Design the International Browserday. The Browserday will take place at Paradiso, Amsterdam on 19 May. The International Browserday is a competition challenging design students to offer an appealing alternative for the existing browsers. Students of international arts academies are invited to compete in the Browser Competition with an original design. This year's theme is The End of the Browsers. The integration of internet and television is almost a fact. What does this mean for users? An extension of the possibilities to be a producer of media oneself, or just a new way of consuming? The thirty best designs will be presented by their makers in a 3 minute knock out show. Showmaster is John Thackara, initiator and organiser of the Doors of Perception conferences. On top of the presentations, international interaction and multimedia designers will be invited to show their work. A jury of professionals from the design, media and IT branche will determine who gets the Browser Award. The award will be handed over ceremoniously to conclude the day of presentations. Earlier winners were Joes Koppers for his 'Browser' (1998) and Andrej Mrackovski for 'Enzyme' (1999). Invitations were sent to a.o.: Gerrit Rietveld Academy, Utrecht School for the Arts, Willem de Kooning Academy, Royal College of Art (UK), Academy of Media Arts (Germany), Domus Academy (Italy), Media GN (NL), HFG Wuppertal (Germany), Vienna Hogeschule fur Angenahme Kunst (Austria), University of Art and Design UIAH (Finland).

Maybe this will mean the end of the Internet as the open medium it once promised to become. Around the world media moguls are investing billions of dollars into the 'high-bandwidth channels', 'content formats' and 'user interfaces' of the future media landscape. To what purpose? In the sceptic view, we are seeing the next couch potato medium being created. The net of the future is simply going to be television enhanced with a "BUY NOW!" button. All you will have to do is sit back and click. Are you going to be content with that? Optimists however firmly believe TV is finally handing over power to the net and lots of exciting possibilities will open up. Everybody will be able to make their own media and be a broadcaster. Which future will you choose? Submit your design Academies, design & arts students, and young designers throughout Europe (and beyond) are invited to submit bold views and daring designs for the ultimate media-interface. Go beyond the browser into a media territory 'no man or woman has gone before', and make your way to fame in the grand hall of Paradiso, Amsterdam on Friday, May the 19th. The 30 best submissions will be presented by the makers in a dazzling show program in Paradiso, accompanied by presentations of the world's best and worst in interactive and multimedia design. Your utopian and/or distopian scenarios will be analysed by a high ranking international jury of design, media and IT specialists. Showmaster will be John Thackara, a.o.initiator of the Doors of Perception conference. Award The day will be concluded with the 3rd International Browser Award ceremony at which the winner will be presented with a serious award. Previous winners are Joes Koppers with 'Browser' and Andrej Mrackovski with 'Enzyme'. Both enjoyed media attention as offspring of the well publicized Competition To subscribe go to: http://www.waag.org/browser or contact: Philippe Taminiau - Society for Old and New Media, Amsterdam - tel ++ 31 20 5579898 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org - The 3rd International Browser Day is a Backbone initiative of the Society for Old and New Media in co-operation with De Balie, Paradiso and NL-Design. _____________________________________________________ De Maatschappij voor Oude en Nieuwe Media organiseert regelmatig programma's die toegankelijk zijn voor het publiek.
