Public Access has democratized and diversified TV and Radio programming in ways that leave us to consider what is possible if immersive media and emerging technology are included in Public Access facilities. Imagine a world where AI, VR, MR, AR, and 3D technology allow us to construct experiences as a community-driven public access utility. What are the implications or opportunities for our families, our neighborhoods, our schools, our public health, or our government when emerging technology is people powered media?
PhillyCAM is partnering with media artists, Anula Shetty and Michael Kuetemeyer, to host this experimental installation for PhillyCAM members and the general public to explore community engagement through digital technology. Projects on display from 12PM to 5PM.
Anula Shetty and Michael Kuetemeyer are award winning media artists whose work has been screened at MOMA, the Flaherty Film Seminar and film festivals and museums worldwide. They are co-directors of the video collective Termite TV and have had extensive experience creating video installations and teaching digital media to youth and community groups. Their immersive documentary work involves exploring new ways of experiencing a place and the oral histories that surround it. Current projects include Time Lens www.timelens.org, an immersive mobile App about gentrification and homelessness and Places of Power www.termite.org/power. They are interested in using VR, AR and mobile apps as platforms to distribute community and artistic media.
PhillyCAM, Philadelphia’s public access television network, is a community media center that brings people together to make and share media that promotes creative expression, democratic values and civic participation.
