Research and Development

Interactive Art Competition iNTERFACES iNTERFACES is an Interactive Art Competition organized by the Research Center for Science and Technology of the Arts (CITAR), whose greater purpose is to value contemporary artistic practice in the areas of digital and interactive arts, thus contributing to further its development.

During the investigation made in the scope of my doctoral thesis (The Process of Omission in the Construction of the Narrative in Documentary Films: Analysis of a Case Study) the first thing done was to establish and define the concept of omission as an essential characteristic in the documentary to represent a historic event, research focused on the rational process of narrative construction, that is, on the intellectual justifications the film maker implements to make decisions about omission and structure with the aim of constructing a narrative and representing an event.

A research project into how the digital revolution affected various aspects of our culture. The cultural aspects to be considered initially are three: we will study the impact on subjectivity, on the status of the image and on art. In the first place we will have to consider the global impact of the digital revolution on these three aspects, and secondly, acknowledge the specificities of the Portuguese context.

Media Arts and Technology (MAT) This research program aims at developing new products and services in the domain of Media Arts and Technology. Expected outcomes will range from knowledge production (high-impact scientific publications and publications in the general media) to innovative prototypes and modular technologies of use to industry as well as end-users.

Contemporary Photography and Territory The photographic image is one of the most thought, discussed, theorized and disseminated images in the world of contemporary art. In this context, Photography is interpreted as a "set of paradoxical images”.

In the last years investigation into the field of network music has focused on the issues raised by spatial distribution and mediation through a technological network for musical performance in real time. So, issues such as streaming quality, sound signal optimisation, latency, capacity and quality of intercontinental networks, among others, have been answered also by the creative needs and problems of musicians and composers, always determined to explore the frontiers of the digital world. Deferred time digital systems have also experienced substantial progress as regards musical composition.

This investigation aims to study, within the context of documentary films, how sound and moving image can, over and above the conflict between the recording of reality and the author’s interpretation, offering the viewer a chance to step back and develop critical thinking about a specific situation. Resorting to video format I will study the role of documentary film in the relationship that exists between the institution as a “micro society”, its representatives and its “occupiers”.
