InRealLife asks what exactly is the internet and what is it doing to our children? Taking us on a journey from the bedrooms of British teenagers to the world of Silicon Valley, filmmaker Beeban Kidron suggests that rather than the promise of free and open connectivity, young people are increasingly ensnared in a commercial world. Beguiling and glittering on the outside, it can be alienating and addictive. Quietly building its case, InRealLife asks if we can afford to stand by while our children, trapped in their 24/7 connectivity, are being outsourced to the net?

In 2002, Ross invented his R1 camera, with which he has produced some of the highest resolution single shot photographs ever realized. In a Ross Landscape, viewers can spot a bird in a tree on a mountain a mile away. Seen & Imagined accompanies a landmark exhibition at MASS MoCA. It offers a comprehensive survey of Clifford Ross's work, from large-scale, highly detailed landscape photographs to his latest "invisible art" - and augmented reality app for smartphones that reveals a hidden work within a work." -- Mass MoCA's website

"John Maeda is one of the world's leading experimental graphic designers and is quickly becoming a digital culture icon. His early preoccupation with the intersection of computer programming and digital art has resulted in a beautiful collection of work. Maeda has pioneered many of the key expressive elements that are prevalent on the web today. Among his most well-known works are The Reactive Square, which features a simple black square on a computer screen that changes shape if one yells at it." "This is the first publication to present a complete overview of Maeda's work and philosophy. A visual exploration of ideas and graphic form, Maeda @ Media takes you through Maeda's beginnings in early computerized printouts, to his reactive graphics on CD-ROM, to his dynamic experiments on the web, to his pedagogical approach to digital visual art, and finally to his overarching quest to understand the very nature of the relationship between technology and creativity."--Jacket

Under this contract, the MIT Media Laboratory pursued three coordinated streams of research: the development of graphically intelligent tools and principles to support the interactive creation of symbolic information landscapes, the integration of such landscapes with pictorially convincing virtual environments, and the enabling of multi-modal natural language communication with the virtual environment display and its contents via combinations of speech, manual gesture, and gaze. These streams will converge in year three of the overall project in the form of an ultra-high definition, seamlessly tiled wall-sized display (datawall).
