This is a call for proposals for performances/presentations (of 5minutes each maximum) for the launch of WATERWHEEL  – with a deadline for proposals of 12 August 2011. The entire performance/presentation program will be no longer than 30-45min.

WATERWHEEL – 2nd LAB on the TAP – 27-29 April & 3-6May

If you want to participate, please check & tick the sessions on this doodle – Remember to change the poll to your timezone, then check the times you are available (3 sessions if possible, or more). If there are none, please suggest other times.

This 2nd lab will happen on the TAP with acces only to webcams (no mixing media yet), so we can be only 6 participants per session (for this lab). Very exciting: there are functions that I never saw before: webcams images can be dragged, resized, flipped vertically and horizontally, as well as rotated!

THIS IS FIRST WEEK DOCUMENTATION on the waterwheel blog
