e-MobilArt promoted interdisciplinary collaboration by experienced European artists toward the production of interactive art. For the purposes of this project, the UoA NTLab collaborated with the University of Lapland (Finland) and the University of Applied Arts (Vienna, Austria), the State Museum of Contemporary Art in Thessaloniki (Greece), the Academy of Fine Arts in Katowice (Poland), as well as with two hardware manufacturers and software developers (Cycling74, Making Things) and the acclaimed electronic art academic journal LEONARDO/OLATS.

 

This project aimed to give experienced European artists the opportunity to collaborate in order to create works of interactive art. For this purpose, three workshops were organised, each in a different european country. Workshop participants had the opportunity to explore the creative uses of relevant technologies and possibly have their work exhibited in a number of european art galleries. Each higher education institution involved in the project organised a workshop. The aim of these three (Greece, Finland, Austria) workshops was twofold: workshop participants were trained in the use of relevant hardware and software by scientists and qualified experts; in addition, cooperation among artists was supported at all stages of the creative process. The works produced by the artists were exhibited by the art galleries involved in the project.
