VIRTUEEL PLATFORM HOT100 2011 @ PICNIC The HOT100 is Virtueel Platform's special talent program for new graduates in e-culture curricula. E-culture includes the fairly recent disciplines of interaction design, game design, media and electronic arts, and social media communication in parallel with digitally informed processes and artefacts from older cultural disciplines such as architecture, film and performing arts. HOT100 2011 is the fifth edition – the first jubilee! – of the HOT100 programme. HOT100 Day at the outstanding PICNIC Festival brings to gether and highlights the most promising 2011 graduates from Dutch ar t academies, universities and universities of applied science in the fields of design, ar ts, theor y, communication or development skills. These graduates, from all cor ners of the Netherlands, are people we expect to come to the forefront in one or other e-cultural practice in the near future. HOT100 Day also connects this upcoming generation with more established organisations and institutions that undertake interesting work in the field of e-culture. In the afternoon seven strategic questions and issues will be presented to the HOT100 by the VPRO, the Amsterdam Public Library (OBA), the Boijmans van Beuningen Museum, Dropstuff with NIMk and Hermen Maat, the Institute of Network Cultures with publisher Valiz, NOSop3 and Virtueel Platform itself. These questions serve as case studies in seven pressure cooker workshops that should lead to design solutions or input for new operational directions for the questioners. Later in the year all these organisations will invite the HOT100 graduates to visit to their workplaces and see what has happened with their input. SO WHAT MAKES THEM HOT? Virtueel Platform asks all Dutch educational institutions with relevant e-cultural curricula to carefully select their 3 to 5 most promising 2011 graduates. These are the HOT100, minus the ones that couldn't make it. Their nomination is not only based on the quality of their graduation work, but also on the expectations that the institutes have of these graduates' future.

HOT100 DAY And what happens at HOT100 Day at the PICNIC Festival? In the morning we kick off with a brief introduction of the entire 2011 HOT100 group. Then three speakers from the PICNIC programme will give parallel talks and host a discussion group. More meeting and mingling happens during lunch. In the afternoon we will have seven parallel workshops that will investigate stimulating questions posed by Dutch cultural organisations from diverse backgrounds: • Boijmans van Beuningen Museum would like to develop the outline of one shared online publishing tool (set) that allows different museums to publish their own programmerelated content in their own ways. • Amsterdam Public Library (OBA) would like to expand the ways in which users participate in the library, by mapping out and tapping into unused possibilities of the digital and non-digital ways in which their users – basically every kind of Amsterdam resident – relates to the library’s central tasks. • • Urban screen-art network Dropstuff, NIMk's Artmobiel and artist Hermen Maat, want to develop new strategies for engaging and interacting with audiences in public spaces. • The Institute of Network Cultures and publisher Valiz would like to investigate the best ways to publish their books for their specialised readers, given the ongoing explosion of formats, platforms, and on- and offline possibilities. • Newslab NOSop3 wants to develop new ways of crowdsourcing data visualisation and audience perspectives on unfolding news stories and news dossiers. • The VPRO wants to develop ideas and strategies to incorporate uses of 'second screens' such as phones and tablets in their programming. • Virtueel Platform wants to brainstorm about and develop plans for on- and offline events and facilities for the HOT100 CLUB, of which all Virtueel Platform’s HOT100s will be member.

IV


The workshop afternoon consists of two main parts: in the first part the issues are discussed and unpacked by groups with very mixed specialties and backgrounds. This leads to more specific questions for the second half of the afternoon. Based on this, the questioners can invite HOT100s with specific interests and skills to tackle those renewed questions. All HOT100s can join another workshop for the second half of the afternoon, with a minimum of 6 and a maximum of 12 participants per workshop. Towards the end of the workshops, all the HOT100s from the previous four years are invited to listen to the results, to provide input and feedback on the ideas for the HOT100CLUB, and to meet the 2011 HOT100s over a drink and a snack. RESULTS AND OTHER EFFECTS Virtueel Platform believes that the HOT100s have the ideas and skills to enrich the creative landscape in the Netherlands. We recognise the need for their fresh but informed perspectives on current techno-cultural developments, as the prime area of innovation in culture. We look forward to the ideas and solutions that will result from the seven workshops and are certain that the cultural sector and associated fields will truly benefit from the input of this group of bright young people who are the first generation to be born, grow up and bloom in synch with the digital media ecology.

Amsterdam-based Virtueel Platform is the sector institute for e-culture. We promote and strengthen the e-culture sector in the Netherlands and abroad. In Virtueel Platform’s practise, e-culture has at its heart the fairly recent disciplines of interaction design, game design, media and electronic arts, social media communication, and other forms of born-digital culture. It also includes practices from more traditional cultural disciplines such as architecture, film, performing arts, etc., which are deeply influenced by the adoption of digital techniques. Virtueel Platform seeks to track, document and enrich the cross-pollination between society and emerging new media practices. We provide support and advice to all organisations and businesses seeking to use e-culture as a creative spark for progress. We believe e-culture can make essential contributions to social and economic innovation. By informing, facilitating and organising activities that bring together people from different sectors, we hope to promote and inspire knowledge exchange. In particular we strive to stimulate the dialogue about new developments between e-culture makers and policymakers, as well as between cultural organisations themselves. After all, it’s all about interconnectivity… Virtueel Platform is an independent foundation subsidised by the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Sciences.

Juul Bar nard studied Interior Architect u r e at the W illem de Kooning Academy in Ro tter dam. His graduation project utilises t h e Rotterdam City Harbours. The water in th e s e harbours shows a strong ver tical movem e n t because of the tide: the water varies b y nearly 1.7 metres. By placing an industr i a l looking metal pod on the bottom of t h e harbour, Juul created an exciting hotel ro o m which disappears twice a day with the co ming of the tide. His project, BLINKY, emerg e d fro m extensive research into the manipu l ation of the subconscious mind. Realising t h a t the general public is being manipulated b y means of sensor y marketing, Juul build a huge interactive figure that emits sublimi n a l messages to influence emotion in a posi t i v e way.

Since 2001 Ruben Boxman has colla b o rat ed with Adri Schokker (see elsewhere t h i s booklet) as the interdisciplinar y ar tistic d u o Snow. Their work includes interactive vid e o installations, media concepts for thea t r e , and par ticipator y veejay per for man c e s ( Nou&Herkauw ). Their work combines m a n y different high- and low-tech techniques a n d materials, balancing between the worlds o f tangible, analogue and digital. Because o f their backgrounds in sculpture they like t o make things, build spaces, create min i a tures, but always combine this with creat i n g interaction, developing media tools a n d wri ting code. They explore themes s u c h as the individual versus the masses, n o t / networks, the digital image versus the ph y s ical world, par ticipator y processes, and t h e power of the masses. For their graduation from the Frank M o h r Institute Ruben and Adri both crea t e d new installations based on their ongo i n g research project The Tower. The Tower i s an interactive video installation where, b y entering personal data and submitting to a n iris scan, par ticipants can upload a video o f themselves to a visual database. Only a f t e r this process can the par ticipant access d a t a provided by other par ticipants. The To w e r questions privacy issues that seem to co i n cide with par ticipation.

Sarah Janssen is specialised in work i n g wit h photography and video, which s h e likes to combine with new media to cre a t e interactive or web-based work. Sa r a h received her Bachelor ’s Degree in Des i g n fro m the Ar tEZ Academy of Ar t and Desi g n , Enschede, in 2009. In 2011 she finish e d the Master of Fine Ar ts Interactive Me d i a and Environments course at the Frank M o h r Institute in Groningen. For her graduat i o n project cineanalogies she analysed the vis u a l language of cinema. Fascinated by the f a c t that cer tain stereotypic images occur in a l l kind of movies, she created diverse ar two r k s in between the fields of new media, desi g n , (pseudo -)scientific research and ar t. T h e results of this project are presented us i n g a multitude of media, such as animati o n , video installations, illustrations, infograph i c s and data visualisation sof tware. Sarah’s work deals with our viewing ha b i t s and the effect images have on our da i l y lives. She is interested in how we perce i v e images, how our media culture influen c e s the way we look at things and where t h e limits of our perceptions are. Finding a way to transfor m her research into vis u a l interesting ar tworks is a topic she wants t o explore fur ther in the future.

Sammy de Keijne studied Communicat i o n & Multimedia Design at the Rotterd a m University of Applied Sciences, specialis i n g in Experience Branding. For her graduat i o n she focused on the topic 'Life-like Design i n the life of chronically ill patients'. Life- l i ke Design is a relatively new method revolv i n g around the integration of social patte r n s (like facial expressions or conversat i o n dynamics) into the design of a produ c t , thereby increasing its likeability and u s ability. Her research project has resul t e d in a mobile application that provides M S patients with an easy and accessible way t o share their emotional state with the peo p l e they care about. Sammy has worked on broad variety o f projects and ser vices, ranging from conc e p tual work such as branding and concept i n g to more hands- on work for interactive ins t a l lations. For the TEDxYouth Amsterdam ev e n t in 2010, for instance, she collaborated w i t h fellow students to develop a concept f o r the entrance experience. This resulted in a n installation where visitors to the event co u l d build their own interactive TEDxYouth lo g o.

She did her final inter nship at an Inter net marketing company, where she explored the subject of website optimisation by using split testing. Split testing is a way to increase conversion rates on websites and landing pages. You create one or more variations of a landing page and then randomly split traffic among them. Meanwhile you measure which variation leads to maximum conversion to achieve the result you are looking for. By using split testing Inge was able to improve the user inter face and design of the company´s website.

But she felt limited by t h e medium of photography, and the mov i n g image is what ultimately inspired Gayne l l e to switch to Ar t and Crossmedia Desi g n . She made a music video and an animat i o n video for her final project. Gaynelle wan t e d these two projects to reveal the two si d e s of her personality: one side shows how w e l l she works conceptually and the other s i d e revealed her desire to tell stories ab o u t monkeys in space.

Gaynelle´s work can star t with a well thou g h t out concept or something that com e s to mind while making a toasted che e s e sandwich. What has always fascinated h e r about creating images is the possibility o f expressing yourself and placing the wo r l d in a different perspective. This makes it a n interesting vehicle to communicate thoug h t s and ideas.

Lena van der Wal recently graduated fr o m Miner va Academy in Groningen. Lena o bser ves the world in a playful way. She fi n d s seemingly opposing elements from our da i l y life and melts them together in an objec t o r a series of objects, combining her pract i c e as a fine ar tist with the practice of a d e signer. She uses humour and contradict i o n to question the meaning of functiona l i t y when placed back in the context of nat u r e and evolution. For her graduation project, Lena van d e r Wal merged the museum with a dep a r t ment store. In a showroom she presen t e d her Inside Outside Interior . This collect i o n of fur niture – ranging from tableware t o a planter – is made entirely of those mat e r i als that are used to constr uct a house t h a t become invisible once the house is rea d y to decorate: insulation material, styrofoa m , underlayment wood, concrete, radiator f o i l and so on. Even the little strings that hold t h e price tags were made from masonr y strin g s . Lena is self-employed and reveals bea u t y in places where we don’t expect it, w h i l e implementing a Robinson Cr usoe-esque w a y of living in our present time.

However, his mind wa s n ' t compatible with the scientific rigour requi r e d for a researcher, so he took a gamble a n d switched to studying ar t at the Mine r v a Academy, hoping to find an outlet for h i s love of scientific insights there. The ye a r s as an ar t student were mostly a str uggle t o reconcile his scientific moral values w i t h those of the ar t world he now resided i n . These are of ten ver y different, even thou g h at their core both are about paying care f u l att ention to whatever grabs our attention .

For his graduation project he dove i n t o the fields of philosophy, neuropsycholo g y and their intersection, neurophilosop h y, in an attempt to find a way to bridge t h e differences between them. Based on t h e scientific theories he read on langua g e acquisition, lear ning, and how the sor t o f att ention we give to the world shapes o u r thoughts before the thoughts themsel v e s are even for med, he somehow end e d up creating a film installation that c a n best be described as meditative, mov i n g Impressionist paintings.
