pervasive media studio

areas of dramatic interest

The main issues facing mediascapes used for dramatic purposes seem to me to be those of CONTENT and QUALITY, or, what is being shown/told and what are its production values?

So I am not so much concerned with what the technology can do, and how, but whether it can engage different audiences and what sorts of narratives it can put over.

 The following ‘scape families are some of those indicated under that banner. Some are in the process of development, others are merely kites or phantasmorgasms (hmmm, does that word exist? On-line dictionary says it's 'a band from Denver, Colorado in the '90s'. Fine, it'll do.)

oh well, I probably meant 'fata morganas' which is what the Germans call 'mirages'. You get a lot of mileage out of slips of the tongs. Interesting looking back at this old stuff (from 2009) and comparing it to what we,as SATSYMPH are thinking about nowadays. Must update...
