ArtCamp07: Re:use was a one-day un-conference bringing the open, participatory and creative energy of BarCamp to the world of art in an interdisciplinary forum. At this hybrid conference/workshop/etc event, participants come together to show work, demo artworks, projects, research or technology, learn new hands-on practices, and talk about ideas.
Geared toward creatively parsing concepts of Re:Use with reference to contemporary art, media and design, ArtCamp07 is about leading or participating in sessions, asking interesting questions, showing what you’re doing, sharing what you’re thinking about, meeting, eating and greeting.
ArtCamp07 was moderated by Andrew Feenberg (Canada Research Chair in Philosophy of Technology in the School of Communication at Simon Fraser University), Lindsay Brown (writer and critic, Ounodesign), Jesse Scott (artist and curator, memelab, CineCitta), Patrick Lichty (artist, writer, curator, Editor-in-Chief of Intelligent Agent Magazine), Alissa Firth-Eagland (Director and Curator of Media Arts at Western Front).
ArtCamp is a co-production between Upgrade! Vancouver and the New Forms Festival and took place September 2007 at Intersections Digital Studios (IDS) at Emily Carr University of Art and Design. ArtCamp 07 partnered with PAARC to support the events of SWARM 8.
