Hello, a speaker is needed for a session. Please read below and email Melissa - mmlile...@wm.edu - if you can help her out.

ARCS conference in Chicago this fall (Association of Registrars and Collections Managers; 10/31-11/3). 
We have a technology-based session where there were two speakers and one has actually had to cancel at the last minute. Specifically we need either someone who could speak for about 15 minutes *OR* someone who could participate on a technology Q&A session that would augment Brad Dilger’s talk (described below).

A Hands-Off Approach to Controlling Media-Based Artworks

With the continued and increasing use of electronic media components in contemporary art projects, a need has arisen to efficiently and accurately control the active cycle of these components while on display. This session will present a novel approach to effectively manage contemporary art projects that have electronic media components using a “hands-off” approach.  Autonomous control of electronic art is based on a system of linking together different software and hardware components from various manufacturers. This Technology has had widespread use in commercial, educational, and residential applications to control all aspects of building functions: Lighting, HVAC, security, entertainment, irrigation, are just a few systems that can be covered by computerized control systems.  This approach achieves an important goal of relieving staff from having to physically manipulate electronic media components in the gallery on a day-today basis, and has dramatically increased the efficiency and proper functionality of contemporary art projects by reducing gallery “downtime” caused by errors.

Speakers: Brad Dilger
