The Interactive Open

Open Source, Open Content, Open Invitation – this event invites interactive artists to remix and reimagine the animated film Sita Sings the Blues as a standalone art piece, focused on the theme of ‘Conversations’. The finished pieces will be available for hands-on play and discovery, and the source code freely downloadable.

As an attendee, you will get to experience these new pieces and interact with them directly. If a piece piques your interest, download the source code and figure out how they made it.

Nina Paley created a feature-length animated film, ‘Sita Sings The Blues’, and made the source content available. Now, artists around the world are taking those pieces and creating new works – in effect, having a conversation with Ms. Paley, and by continuing to make their works open and remixable, the conversation widens with each new piece.
