This year's festival aims to become a space for artistic interventions and conversations about the complex implications of immersive technologies. Taking place in the framework of RISK CHANGE Creative Europe’s project, this year's festival particularly will focus on exploring the relations between “virtualities” and “realities” in our post-media society.

The festival will take place in from October 19–21, 2017, on the most significant contemporary art & culture sites in Riga, Latvia. The CONFERENCE parallel sessions will take place the in the Art Academy of Latvia, and the Latvian National Museum of Art, while the EXHIBITIONS – in kim? Contemporary Art Centre, and RIXC Gallery (two venues), and the PERFORMANCES – in RISEBA Architecture and Media Center “H2O6”.


CONFERENCE

The 2nd Open Fields Conference: Virtualities And Realities
October 19–21, 2017
The Art Academy of Latvia, and the Latvian National Museum of Art

THE 2ND OPEN FIELDS CONFERENCE will discuss the socio-cultural and neurobiological impacts of virtual and augmented reality, and other immersive technologies. The conference participants will also look at the places and movements from a socio-political perspective, the mapping and charting of migrating cultures particularly people and their data traces.

Immersive technologies coupled with superior virtual environments, artificial intelligence algorithms, faster processors, and biometrics are launching a new era in virtual experiences, entertainment and story-telling. At the same time these technologies have the potential for reinforcing stereotypes, contributing to massive economic and social disruptions, and implementing new systems of invasive monitoring and control.

 What do these new developments in VR/AR mean for education, entertainment, social policy, and systems of codified knowledge? Like their predecessors the telephone, television, and mobile phone, what are the impending new vistas and reduced horizons?

Biometrics and the uploading and tracking of personal data spans areas from healthcare to advertising, with implications for law, criminal justice, entertainment (gaming), education and sports. Machine learning and algorithms are harvesting and making use of big data in new and startling ways. Some of it allows pinpoint accuracy in determining issues of public health, economics, climate change, story-telling, political leanings and the migration of populations. What does all this data combined with new technologies mean? What are some current and future artistic strategies that deal with this? Combined with the acceleration of VR/AR and technologies of immersion, how will societies react?


KEYNOTES

OPENING KEYNOTE LECTURES AND PERFORMANCES

Thursday, October 19, 16.00–18.00 / The National Museum of Art
SHADES OF VIRTUALITY
Monika FLEISCHMANN  and Wolfgang STRAUSS / DE
Thursday, October 19, 16.00
The National Museum of Art

Monika Fleischmann and Wolfgang Strauss are Visionary Pioneers of Interactive Media Art.
In their lecture they will talk about Virtual Reality (VR) as the technisation of perception, a translation of the natural senses into the telematic. To keep pace with the growth of data knowledge over time, performative structures are needed that keep the mind alert and shake the memory. Their own work will demonstrate how ‘difference’ and ‘new knowledge’ can emerge through immersive mixed reality installations. How do the ideas and visions of early VR pioneers compare to today’s immersive environments?

Thursday, October 19, 17.00 / The National Museum of Art
WHAT’S IT LIKE TO BE A NIGHTINGALE? Adventures in Interspecies Music
David ROTHENBERG / US

David Rothenberg is a musician, composer, author and philosopher-naturalist, professor of philosophy and music at the New Jersey Institute of Technology.
… Can one really communicate with other species through music? David Rothenberg has been trying to do this for many years, and his latest subject is the nightingale. Rothenberg will play a special solo version of his new piece for spoken word, electronics, and clarinet, involving the ideas of Thoreau, Hegel, and Tim Dee recording the wind….

PUBLIC KEYNOTES

Friday, October 20, 17.00 / The Art Academy of Latvia
THE APPROACHING STORM: AI, BIOMETRICS, BIG DATA, IMMERSION AND SURVEILLANCE
Ellen PEARLMAN (USA)
Parsons / New School / Art-A-Hack / ThoughtWorks / New York, US

Ellen Pearlman is a professor in Parsons / New School, director of the ThoughtWorks Arts Residency, president of Art-A-Hack, and director/curator of the Volumetric Society.
The rise in computing power is growing in tandem with enormous databanks of information, algorithmic processing, new methods of surveillance, and advances in biotechnology. Using examples of brain computer interfaces (BCIs) and her fully immersive interactive brain opera brain “Noor”, Ellen Pearlman will explore a few of the implications of these emerging and converging technologies for the future.

Friday, October 20, 18.00 / The Art Academy of Latvia
IMMERSION: WHAT FOR?
Chris SALTER
Concordia University / Hexagram Concordia Centre for Research and Creation in Media Art and Technology, Montreal, CA

Chris Salter is an artist, University Research Chair in New Media, Technology and the Senses at Concordia University and Co-Director of the Hexagram network for Research-Creation in Media Arts and Technology in Montreal.
With the increasing commercial take up of supposedly new “immersive” technologies such as VR and AR, there is the sense that new forms of human sensory experience are just on the horizon – ones which are not only unprecedented but directly made possible by these technologies. This talk asks a simple question – namely, what does immersion do and for what purposes?
