The HOT100 is Virtueel Platform's special e-culture* talent program. For third year in a row, this event is being held at the fantastic PICNIC festival. The HOT100 programme kills (at least) two birds with one stone: it brings together and highlights the crème de la crème of Dutch art academies, universities and universities of applied science in the fields of design, arts, theory, communication or development skills. We believe that these highly promising alumni, from all corners of the Netherlands, are the next generation of groundbreaking e-cultural practitioners. The HOT100 day also serves to connect this upcoming generation with more established organisations and institutions associated with the field of e-culture. In the afternoon seven e-cultural design challenges will be presented to the HOT100 by seven illustrious organisations – to serve as case studies in seven pressure cooker workshops. How to be hot

Virtueel Platform asks all Dutch educational institutions with relevant e-cultural curricula to hand-pick their most promising 2010 alumni. These are the HOT100, minus those who did not make the deadline, those who are out of the country, and those who did not make it through the second selection process we had to conduct because several institutions proposed too many of their alumni – we have to be fair, of course.

And what an exciting group it is! Many of them have wide and varied skills: applied, artistic, entrepreneurial, and theoretical. Some have already made a name for themselves with high-profile projects. Many of them have started their own thriving businesses. They all introduce themselves, their background and their skills in this booklet – with handy tags, so you can easily find the person you are looking for.


Programme

What will we be doing at the PICNIC festival? In the morning we kick off with a gathering of the entire HOT100 group, with talks by outstanding speakers from the PICNIC program. We will meet and mingle with several of our interesting guests during lunch. In the afternoon we will have seven parallel workshops that will investigate stimulating questions posed by Dutch cultural organisations from diverse backgrounds: • NIMk, backed up by Culture Vortex, want to distribute their unique collection of media- video- and net art online and are looking for ways to do that sustainably. • NLArchitects is looking for speculative scenarios for mixed public space events five years in the future. • NRC & Nanette Hoogslag will join the HOT100 to explore the future of the newspaper illustration. • Arts Holland / UitBuro are investigating smart ways to develop cultural profiles for foreigners visiting the Netherlands. • The City of Eindhoven and Philips Design are looking for scenarios and applications for responsive public lighting systems • SetUp Utrecht invites the HOT100 to outline a couple of ideal knowledge-sharing spaces of the near future, based on different combinations of parameters. • Urban Park Laboratory wants to develop scenarios for augmented public park experiences. We will present the ideas and proposals that result from the workshops to the PICNIC audience, after which we will go for a drink with the people who would really like to meet the HOT100. The day will end with a BANG! at the PICNIC party. Outcome

Virtueel Platform hopes the HOT100 participants will together enrich the creative landscape in the Netherlands. We have high expectations of their fresh but informed perspectives on current techno-cultural developments. We look forward to the ideas and solutions that will result from the seven workshops and are certain that the cultural sector will truly benefit from the input of this group of bright young people who are from the only 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 eculture sector in the Netherlands and abroad. In the practice of Virtueel Platform, 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...

Jan’s graduation work Bioluminescence Design showcases all the creativity and design skills he has gathered over the years, formulated as one single, purposeful product. The product, called fluDOC, uses genetically modified bioluminescent bacteria to visualize traces of the influenza virus in humans. The bacteria are specially modified to become sensitive to influenza: they stop emitting their continuous flow of bioluminescence upon infection, visualising the presence of influenza among humans within 15 minutes.

She was involved in the Open Beelden (Open Images) project, which aimed to release part of the Institute’s audiovisual collection under a Creative Commons license. Inge’s research focused on the motives and constraints affecting (public) broadcasters when releasing media content under this license. Inge presented her results in a paper at GikII 2009, a two-day workshop on the intersections between law, technology and popular culture. Inspired by her internship and the GikII workshop, Inge is considering a Master’s course in law and technology to gain a deeper understanding of the legal aspects of ICT and media.

Inge van Beekums’s Master thesis, Written Technology: The Hybridity of Software versus the Dual Nature of Intellectual Property Rights, considers the hybridity of software as a merger of culture and technology and the complex issues surrounding the legal protection of software. Inge reflected on the assumption of a dichotomy between culture and technology within intellectual property rights as represented by copyright and patent law. The research focuses on how a philosophical, ontological problem manifests itself in practical legal issues.

Nicola Bozzi’s thesis, From Metaphysics to Metadata, deals with the use of commercial and cultural symbols, drawn from a global imaginary, in the creation of identities in urban environments. It is a theoretical investigation of the dynamics regulating space and people, in which both are treated as information. Such metadata affects students and young professionals – who imagine and project their identities each day in the layered environments within which they interact – as well as urban policies and racial profiling, thus becoming a broader phenomenon than youth consumerism.

He lit the cubes with a beamer and used another beamer to animate their shadows on the wall. The context of Sub/Objective Shadows is a zone between real and virtual spaces. As a director of this space Merlijn manipulates everyday phenomena such as shadows by adding a virtual layer onto reality. This work also has an investigative function, namely demonstrating the differences and similarities between virtual and physical spaces. On the one hand it shows how makeable the physical aspect is, and on the other hand, the ease with which people accept it.

John Haltiwanger specialises in next-generation software conceptualisation, creative non-fiction writing, generative typesetting, free software, freestyle rapping, and exploratory theorisation. To date, John’s work has been heavily conceptual. One example of this is the-as-yet-unimplemented web space of 5ab5traction5, a realm where users experiment with collaboration in an ‘anti-nomic’ writing space, completely devoid of user names. Contributions requiring attribution or payment are tracked automatically on the backend. The project itself interrogates the boundaries of text within the computer: new words are invented to embody concepts, relations, and contingencies arising within the space, for instance, interactive punctuation marks.

More immediate future projects involve the development of a publication platform to enable a postjournal for academic writing. This incorporates John’s work in generative typesetting, utilising a simple pre-format that can subsequently be converted into a range of output formats, including HTML and PDFs, using TeX. Continuing in this vein, John will co-organise a conference on eBooks with the Institute of Network Cultures in Amsterdam. Further down the road, John envisions a platform for digital distribution that uses social, rather than legal, organisation to engender economic exchanges between artists and their audience. CO D E

For his graduation project Niek researched the field of alternate reality games. In collaboration with a group of fellow students he produced one such game, which turned out to be a thrilling interactive film incorporating various types of new media. Niek likes to work as a director in a multidisciplinary team where new ideas are conceived and developed. He believes that breaking boundaries through the use of new media to deliberately stir up real-life offers the possibility of expanding media and media applications beyond the traditional scope. Because it is essential to creating new concepts, sharing this new knowledge satisfies him immensely. This is also the reason why he would like to continue working as an educator in multimedia.

During his studies, Kasper van Hoek focused on building his own string instruments with integrated hardware controllers, which send commands to a computer that manipulates the string sounds. He searched for practical components for the instruments, made pick-up coils, worked with prototyping boards and made use of Max/MSP and Pd software. His graduation project was a pataphysical investigation into the construction of an instrument.

Kasper records, manipulates and releases his own soundworks. Equally important to him are his live performances in which he plays his self-made electroacoustic string instruments. Side projects include playing music for theatre companies and dance performances, and recording music for documentaries and films. Kasper intends to continue building instruments, both for himself and for others. He prefers to build instruments that he believes people need rather than what they think they want. Kasper works with the principles of the instrument itself, and not with the generally accepted notions of what contemporary instruments should look and sound like. He will soon start hand-cutting vinyl records on old lathe cutters for his record label.

They have to travel through a forest full of magical creatures and strange plants and trees. This film was entirely shot for green screen and features many visual effects. Stef worked on the concept and character art for the film. In the pre-production phase of the film he communicated the kind of style the team wanted to the relevant department. In the post-production phase he composited several shots and created an animated 3D character for the film. He also took care of the film's opening and end titles.

Piclapping questions the linear approach to searching on the Internet. This resulted in an alternative search engine, which connects stories, people and events to each other. Placing one image over another one creates an overlap, which symbolises the similarity between two search areas. Based on this overlap, search results are generated and start flowing out of it. With these search results, new overlaps can be created to increase or decrease the scope of the search area. From Esther’s point of view, thinking and designing based on relationships and contexts is inevitable. Esther would like to continue her research in the field of digital media and continue developing smart, inventive, revolutionary, but simple and useful new media concepts.

Philip’s work experience also includes the Mobile Tagging project at the MediaLAB Amsterdam, a project commissioned by Sparked and the employment agency Randstad. This project was organised around the development of an offline QR-campaign linked to the Internet, that creates a direct link between physical and virtual space. In this campaign the audience uses their smartphones to interact with physical space. Philip’s ambition is to offer people new ways of communication, not by solely looking at the digital aspect, because he thinks that the strength of tomorrow’s communication lies in the way it connects the virtual with the physical.

Philip Man is a new media researcher who wants to incorporate knowledge from a variety of different fields in his research. His beta background means he has a solid foundation for further interdisciplinary research. He realised that new media developments could be conceptualised more in terms of anthropology than of technology. Philip focuses on future developments in new media and is particularly interested in new media that introduces new ways of communication, which often requires and generates new kinds of data. This was the focus of his first project. Using surveillance as the main theme, he explored how marketers cunningly extract useful behavioural data from consumers in the digital realm.

It is an attempt to structure and analyse current problems in urban planning, as well as more general problems of power distribution through the example of the food industry and its main interest group, the supermarkets.

Noraly Schiet is currently studying media and culture at the University of Amsterdam, specialising in new media. She is also attending a minor course in Swedish. Noraly is especially interested in the way emotional human beings interact with naturally static, mechanical digital technology. Modern thinking is based on rationality. We would like to think that we base all our thoughts on rationality, that emotions are not important – but they are! Humans are emotional creatures, which is largely in contrast with emotionless technology. Noraly worked as a researcher and project manager on the Scryption project at the MediaLAB, Amsterdam. Noraly and her team developed the interactive installation Reflact, which creates awareness about the differences between the real you and digital you, for the Scryption Museum in Tilburg, an interactive museum that focuses on the history and future of written communication.

PERCEPTOR tackles independent and commercial projects that use graphic and interface design, often for use in autonomous interactive systems and installations. Their work embraces unstable media, scientific methods and tinkering. PERCEPTOR aims to redefine the boundaries of interactive space, visual language and our understanding of reality. In realising their projects, PERCEPTOR does not fear code, hardware or comprehensive research.

His thesis focused on generating publicity for a manual about the application and use of EM (Effective Microorganism), a popular microbial technology developed in Japan. He investigated various target groups and communication channels for effective publicity and pure niche marketing. His interest in a theoretical approach led Xander to research new media across a broader spectrum, in which he focused on subject material such as wiki's, social media, mobile media and surveillance. His work experience includes the Mobile Tagging project at the MediaLAB Amsterdam, commissioned by Sparked and the employment agency Randstad. This project was organised around the development of an offline QR-campaign linked to the Internet, that creates a direct link between physical and virtual space. In this campaign the audience uses their smartphones to interact with physical space. Philip Man is another HOT100 participant who worked on the Mobile Tagging project.

The social implications of new media is another topic that interests Bree. He also participated in the Metareporter project, a website about how new media are portrayed on a daily basis in Dutch newspapers. Bree is also a web editor for Buka Mulu, a website for Dutch Moluccan youth aspiring to empower their position in Dutch society. What Bree’s future will look like is something only time can tell – for now he shapes it to involve a creative mind, critical thinking, social interaction and a never-ending passion for the arts.

Studying new media at the University of Amsterdam, Bree Tahapary developed an interest in the concept of space when it comes to new media. He completed his graduation project at the MediaLAB. As part of an interdisciplinary team, he helped create the first augmented reality art exhibition in the Dutch public space for the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam. The project illustrates that the social aspect of interaction is as important as the digital component. This travelling exhibition, which uses the Layar Reality Browser, available for iPhone and Android smartphones, is part of the museum’s ARtours programme.

Communication and multimedia designer Egbert Veenstra is convinced that the objects we use in daily life should be obvious in their interaction and almost unnoticeable in their use. He likes to come up with solutions that seem obvious once they have been formulated but almost unattainable when you are trying to grasp them. Egbert is currently employed by Catawiki, the first worldwide trading platform for collectibles where the trade is based on a centralised catalogue. Like Wikipedia, this catalogue is maintained by the users themselves.

For his graduation project, Egbert teamed up with two fellow students and created Credeble, a web application that manages expenses for a group. Contrary to some student projects that never leave the beta, prototype or design stage, their application is now used by approximately 1400 people around the world. Egbert was also one of the three-person team behind the Google Switch phone hoax in 2006. Before touch phones even existed, they designed such an ideal mobile device and sent some weblogs a picture of it, along with a rumour about Google and Samsung working on it together. Within weeks that same picture was seen all over the world on blogs and websites.

It shows the feeling behind a chat message. By using design elements and typographic elements, position and colour, it interprets the feeling behind a message. An emotionmodel behind the application analyses emotion words using two values: arousal and pleasantness. This makes it possible to make an accurate decision.

Bonzo is an interactive, threedimensional, animated character projected on a wall behind a public trashcan. Infrared sensors placed inside the trashcan detect pedestrians and discarded trash. The character interacts with the users by trying to get their attention and making them understand that he wants to eat some trash. He eats any trash he is given and thanks the passers-by in different ways. Bonzo was designed as a huggable, moving character so that he can connect emotionally with people and encourage them to keep the streets clean. Martijn thinks the combination of augmented visuals and intuitive interaction is a very powerful form of communication.
