|initiatives for a new cultural context
the *context project* is a series of intiatives which aims
to appropriate and disseminate the emerging culture as a new 'art
the networked digital information and apps are the contemporary
cultural artifacts, the shared ground for a transdisciplinar culture.
One that overcome science culture and art culture clash.
the concept of *context* is a net driven research and development
of this new cultural context, the emerging digital culture. in particular,
designing the framework and the processes for human experiences
that contribute to shaping the next generation of pervasive technologies,
the digital environment of contextualized information and services.
initiatives emerge from the core activity developed through *context
weblog*, an innovative news site; a log of our times, a weblog
of emerging culture. a site that everyone can access, a multilingual
site, involved in shaping the network society.
context weblog acts as a filter and context provider, track technological
culture and offer digest of news on art, science and technology,
and their intersections. the info capsules link to the original
sources, adopt a transdisciplinary approach and face contradictory
paradygms. this activity identify *context* in the net as a hub
node about emerging culture.
*context* explore and work in the implementation of "semantic web"
vision (in the form of news available as text for people and at
same time as XML document for computers), and of the new internet
paradigm, "peer-to-peer" (with the content's exchange between sites,
through rss -an XML based format-).
*context* work with media independent XML encoding for content
(based in interoperability new standards), to provide materials
for book and e-book, media and new media, hybrid spaces and events.
*context* project model to raise funding for their initiatives
are grants from foundations, by content syndication and with sponsoring.
