Schmiede // the playground of ideas
Schmiede is Austria’s biggest producer festival. Since 2003 we annually provide a collaborative platform between art and new media. A real space with real people, a creative playground and stage as well as a community. Schmiede is based on the principles NETWORK - CREATE - PRESENT, hence cooperation and diversity are highly valued. Schmiede’s focus is to create a frame for creative teamwork to happen and ensure networking amongst the participants (Smiths). pictures: www.bit.ly/whatisschmiede

Dear fans and supporters, for our last day of our crowdfunding we want to present two projects. The first one "Absorbit" was made at Schmiede2012 by Adam Awan & Rene Baumgartner in collaboration with the University of Applied Science Salzburg, CADET and PELS . Absorbit is a cutting edge multiplayer movement based game. Run and your orb follows you, growing as you absorb stars and smaller players! https://vimeo.com/groups/schmiede/videos/51193008 The second one is using the same technology for interactive floor visuals. In the video (thanx Michael Perfahl) they show some shader experiments with interactive floor tracking showing different eye candy realtime visuals for public space interaction. Big thx to Florian Berge, Robert Praxmarer and Gerlinde Emsenhuber .. This was developed at Schmiede12 together with CADET/PELS research . https://vimeo.com/groups/schmiede/videos/51192942 So again, please help us move this project to the finish line, now is time. Please show your support by donating, becoming a fan, spreading the word and letting your creativity run free! Let´s use the next 13 hours to bring this last project to a happy end. Here you can find more smith projects www.bit.ly/schmiedev! Thank you for your support!! The SchmiedeTeam

Dear Fans and Supporters, Due to an unexpected tiredness after a glorious Schmiede12: ZERO (us as well as the Smiths) we found ourselves short on time. This was especially painful as in the last days our startnext project started to reach flow, so we did the unspeakable: ask for more time. We thought our startnext project would fall short of expectations and bling bling if we couldn't include at least a few of the Schmiede12 projects still in the pipeline. So now we can announce YUHUUUU - We received the startnext OK to extend our crowdfunding period to Mo. October 15th 2012 We heard there were a few misunderstandings, the Schmiede12 startnext project is not to finance Schmiede12 but the SchmiedeTeam 2013. We chose to use Schmiede12 for this initiative due to the attention generated as well as the thematic correlation with ZERO (Collaborative Consumption) So once again this is a call to action. Please support our cause and help us keep things going. @all Smiths 2012 please post your projects into the SmithGroup (fb) so we can share them. with the kindest regards and thanks for your support. ruediger

Dear Supporter, Fan and Smith, Schmiede12 was a blast and an equal success. One project remains in the air, “www.startnext.de/schmiede”: for all of you who still want to support us: now is the time. Our funding period ends in 2 days (Sun. Sept. 30th) All proceeds of this initiative will flow into building an even stronger and better SchmiedeTeam for 2013. Please help us build and hold our outstanding team! Many projects are in the pipeline and will be presented, here is a quick peak at the many faces of Smith: the WE-ALL-WALL 2012 (by Maria Morschitzky ). It shows all Schmiede12 participants (Smiths) and the SchmiedeTeam. So again, please help us move this project to the finish line, now is time. Please show your support by donating, becoming a fan, spreading the word and letting your creativity run free! Let´s use the next 48 hours to bring this last project to a happy end. Thank you. See you next year! Rüdiger

The video functions as the narrator’s stream of consciousness. There are no linear storylines, but strong images connected to the narrator’s memento of the past, the presence and the future. The decision to use these fluent imagery works best for showing that every tense presents itself in the present: the very moment of thinking. Directed by Judith Holzer and Rainer Kohlberger in 2007. With Gabriella Cserhati. Soundtrack by The Cinematic Orchestra. Entry for the Radar Music Video Festival 2008. produced at Schmiede07: We are
