In exchange for our data or money, we temporarily feel at home in virtual places, but are they
really ours? On the other side we use open source programs and platforms that
do belong to everybody – but do they allow us to work efficiently and stand a chance in commercial competiton?
For online communication and audiovisual art production, we lease
platforms and programs from big tech companies. In exchange for our data or money, we temporarily feel at home in virtual places, but are they
really ours? Do we have a say in their evolution? How about rights of entry
or freedom of speech?
On the other side we use open source programs and platforms that
do belong to everybody – but do they allow us to work e ciently and
competitive? What do they necessitate to become more sustainable than
a subscription at a multinational?
During the first hour (14-15h), Multimedia-artist Olivier Meunier will present another kind of internet,
outside of the platforms of GAFAM (Google, Amazon, Facebook, Apple,
Microsoft ). You can follow this presentation online, the link will be shared if you inscribe yourself via tickets.ritcs.be
Then, we zoom in on open source in grading and editing.
With Olivier, students and teachers from 3 BA Editing, you can
test out a couple/range of multiplatform-open source editing programs.
We close the afternoon by assembling recommendations/a self help kit
for those in “editing distress.”
Bring your own laptop if possible!
