Dear all,

workshop coming up on database film-making:
The 'Symphony of Deptford' workshop will introduce participants to 
database film-making where material and images from the Deptford.TV 
archive will be edited to create a 'Symphony of Deptford'.

Date: 29th October - 31st October, 12pm-5pm

RSVP only: Interested person should please RSVP with phone number & 
state your specific interest: a.hadzi(a)gold.ac.uk (limited space!).

all the best,

Symphony of Deptford.


Footage taken from Deptford.TV was filmed during a previous TV hacking 
workshop where participants equipped with CCTV surveillance signal 
receivers were lead through the city by incoming surveillance camera 
signals. CCTV video signal receivers cached surveillance camera signals 
into public and private spaces and were made visible: surveillance 
became sousveillance.

By making images visible which normally remain hidden, we gain access to 
the “surveillance from above” enabling us to use these images to create 
personal narratives of the city. The Images of Ebb workshop will look at 
constructing a narrative to the Sounds of Ebb.

Sound of Ebb (a branch project of The End of Something) is an open 
source sound series that asks sound artists and artists working with 
sound to respond to the question: What is the sound of Recession? 
Contributions are collected internationally reflecting the affects of 
crisis and recession from various social contexts and geographic 
locations. Together the Sounds of Ebb and images from Sousveillance 
produce articulations of a local city in crisis with global resonances 
of recession.

Deptford.TV is a research project on collaborative film - initiated by 
Adnan Hadzi in collaboration with the Deckspace media lab, Bitnik media 
collective, OWN project, Liquid Culture initiative, and Goldsmiths College.

It is an online media database documenting the urban change of Deptford, 
in Sout East London. Deptford TV functions as an open, collaborative 
platform that allows artists, filmmakers and people living and working 
around Deptford to store, share, re-edit and redistribute the 
documentation of Deptford. http://deptford.tv
