[ISEA2012] Paper: Katharine Moriwaki – R.I.P.: A CASE STUDY IN FACILITATING MULTI-DISCIPLINARY COLLABORATION AND EXCHANGE IN CONTEXT OF CREATIVE PRACTICE

Abstract

This paper explores the themes of recycling pervasive media, intervening in planned obsolescence, and practicing technological sustainability (R.I.P.) in the context of an event held by the same name during the summer of 2011 at the Banff Center of the Arts. R.I.P., the workshop, was an event organized by Katherine Moriwaki, Jonah Brucker-Cohen and Susan Kennard which brought together a multi-disciplinary group of artists, thinkers, and municipal workers to focus on reclaiming “good garbage” from waste facilities and integrating it into new public installations in urban space.
