Pressed for Time
The keepers of the Electric Bookshop are creating a publishing time-machine. It will provide unexpected and immersive experiences for intrepid book readers, using a combination of human interaction and artificial intelligence to create custom 'books' that they can take away.
Come along and listen to how old and new media, electronics, programming, mechanical engineering and traditional craft will enable the machine to be an anachronistic mishmash of time periods from literature, printing and publishing. It's the best open source bedtime story ever.
We're proud to be welcoming writer Ian Sansom, whose latest book Paper; An Elegy is as the title suggests, the story of this most important medium, material and mother of all books. Not to mention he has the best self-penned biography we've yet to see on a author's website. Read it at http://www.iansansom.net/biography.html
Michael Shorter an experimenter and scholar of printed electronics at and collaborator on an innovative project Bespoke, to marry the news needs of Dundee communities with innovative digital tools. He will be explaining how we can add value to paper with electronics. Michael has an upcoming exhibition, Paper at Glasgow's The Lighthouse Gallery.http://www.mrshorter.co.uk/
Alyson Fielding in an innovative artist making a gesture-responsive book for The Library of Lost Books (http://thelibraryoflostbooks.blogspot.co.uk/) she hacks books and plays with stories and Arduinos. http://alysonfielding.com/
Yvette Hawkins is a talented paper artist and founder of @bookapothecary who astounds us with fascinating ways with modular origami, folding and contouring maps and drawing with thread. Yvette will be working on paper artworks live at the event. http://yvette-hawkins.blogspot.co.uk/
