RE-playable: Paidia Institute at University of Hull, Scarborough

RE-playable: Remixing, Referencing, Reaction, Reworking and Recreation as strategies in media art

The Interdisciplinary & Collaborative Practices Cluster at the University of Hull invited Paidia Institute for a presentation of past and future work, projects and practices.

Remixing, Referencing, Reaction, Reworking and Recreation are important strategies in media art: also and especially while working with the game medium. Paidia Institute uses these strategies in projects yielding art and artistic research, focusing on diverse forms of play – from deconstructions of the dispositive of computer gaming to performances and site specific interventions.

In their presentation, strategies and art projects from Paidia’s past will be shown and the concept for a future event will be presented and put up for discussion. This future event will consist of a workshop-like setting/interactive laboratory in developing formats for the site specific use of “embedded technologies”.
