Pequeno vídeo sobre o evento Black Public Media: NMI 2007 Locative Media, que busca documentar a cultura do Blues no Delta do Mississippi.
“As part of NBPC’s New Media Institute 2007, 26 producers gathered in Jackson, Mississippi to create new media pieces documenting blues culture in the Mississippi Delta. Their final products are as varied as their talents; video and audio pieces, interactive locative media geo tags, even website architectures. NMI 2007 was funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB).
Locative Media Projects. For the 2007 NMI, three teams of media makers were convened in Mississippi to use a mix of visual descriptions and audio soundscape impressions to paint a picture of three historic Blues landmarks; the Hisckory Street neighborhood in Jackson, Mississippi, the Riverside Hotel, and the WGRM radio station. These projects plan to use a mixture of GPS technology and mobile media distribution to create site specific experiences for the audience. The video here narrated by team leader Leslie Rule, utilizes a visual “screencast” (video capture of the computer interface) to recreate what the mobile or computer experience would look like.”
