Networks, support of interactives application

Networks allow us to exchange information in real time. If traditional methods of information function only in one sense, the network enables the user to be reactive, to bring his appreciation and thus to act on the content. The basis of interactivity is probably, to modify, hijack and redirect information in order to make it closer and more familiar. Some of the aims of the IDRE workshop were to see how information could be modified, enhanced during transfer, given a new life and thus broadcast.



Learning to manage dynamic information

It is essential to know the mechanisms of the network, its limits and the tools that enable the information to become 'bidirectional', so that the freedom to broadcast, to divert information, remains accessible to the greatest number. It is essential that the tools which serve these aims are free, not only free to use but also free in the spirit of their creation. Using OPEN SOURCE tools managed by a community of developers was the second objective of the IDRE workshop.



Applying this to art projects

The training of new techniques has a real interest only in the way it is applied, the goal was to find a real application for the use of these techniques. The project developed within the framework of the workshop- the embryo of a more significant project- was to blend together the transfer of information through the network, the remote piloting of the device and the idea of 'captivitating' the spectator confronted by a world of machines.This structure, the training tools of the network’s techniques, will become one of the principal pieces presented during the 2006 exhibition in Spain.
