Clip Kino Helsinki Archive [January-June 2009]

Keskiviikko/Wednesday 27.05. klo 18.00-20.00, LUME TV Studio, TaiK

Sanna Marttila and Petri Kola (both FI) presents.. 'Open Video'

This event is part of the Emerging Media Practices and Environments symposium organised by ARKI research group in Medialab, TaiK.

Social media systems, applications and numerous video sharing websites on the Internet have given everyday people a possibility to take part in the creation and distribution of audiovisual media. They use these digital platforms of participation for viewing, producing and sharing video. Open creation and collaboration with video has more levels than just viewing and production: people tell stories, share interests, exchange and share media content, develop innovations and invent solutions together through videos.

How to define this emerging phenomenon that makes media more open and accessible for us? What constitutes Openness and Open Video on the Internet? For some it is a development for better open source video software and video encoders and decoders, for others it is an ongoing discussion and a way of expressing their creativity and collaborating with peers. Is Openness becoming essential element of being an active citizen? Or is acting in the open in the society a luxury only for some?

This Clip Kino event with a theme on Open Video sheds light to some of the current understandings and definitions of openness in video through pre-selected video clips, curated by Creative Commons spokesperson and researcher Sanna Marttila and artist-researcher Petri Kola. We invite participants to join in the discussion of the theme and the growing movement of Open Video.
