Welcome to Telematic Cafe

Dear friends,

Telematic Café (TC) is going to open and operate at George Paton Gallery from 13 May though to 29 May. Situated in the heart of the University of Melbourne it will welcome visitors into its relaxed warm space, where the coffee will be available for free.

What can you expect from TC?  It is a discursive environment aimed at considering communication networks and will enable critical and creative experiences of communication in the network space. Works by Camille Robinson, Travis Cox, Tara Elizabeth Cook, Richie Cyngler and USA-based Chris Williams will resonate as unique ‘telematic communication models’ and you need to find out for yourself what they are about. Teaser images for some of these models are posted here.

Integrated in the Telematic Café will also be blogging and live-tweeting (#telematiccafe).

The work by Travis Cox – ELAINE (Encapsulated Learning Algorithm Interpreting New Experiences) will create a dynamic framework of exchange between VCA and Parkville by being located at VCA Digital Hub Foyer and the George Paton Gallery.
