all material will be provided by Deptford.TV

The materials gathered during our C/Overt operations (see http://liwoli.at/programm/2011/covert-operations-cctv-sniffing) will be meta-data tagged and added to the Deptford TV collaborative video editing platform. During the course of Liwoli this platform will be used together with the open source video editing package kdenlive, installed on the Pure:Dyne memorystick, to create a series of 'versioned' edits of this material. We will also be inviting remote participants to contribute additional raw media and participate in editing.

The workshop will introduce participants to Surveillance and CCTV filmmaking where material and images from the Deptford.TV archive will be edited to submissions from the Deptford.TV database. 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 workshop will look at constructing a possible narrative.

Deptford.TV is a research project on collaborative film - initiated by Adnan Hadzi in collaboration with the Deckspace media lab, Bitnik media collective, Boundless project, Liquid Culture initiative, and Goldsmiths College. The Pure:Dyne memorysticks are created by GOTO10. GOTO10 is a collective of international artists and programmers, dedicated to Free/Libre/Open Source Software (FLOSS) and digital arts. GOTO10 aims to support and grow digital art projects and tools for artistic creation, located on the blurry line between software programming and art. http://goto10.org
