EDAR on display in the Collaboration Space
EDAR residency projects from Jeff Goldenson and Dan Torop are now on display in the NEW ColLABoration Space on the 2nd Floor of the Gottesman Libraries! The "LAB": We have begun an initiative to bring out the "lab" in "collaboration." EdLab will now be hosting interactive, experimental mini-displays in the second floor Collaboration Space. We hope to provide a space where the Teachers College community can interact with projects and experiments from EdLab. We'll have the ability to host kiosks for videos from After Ed, applications from the R&D team, or any project where the public can interact and react to the great work happening up here on the 5th floor. Check out this Flickr Set to preview what the ColLABoration Space has in store. The EDAR Projects: After their two-month residencies and some subsequent "clean-up" time, Dan Torop and Jeff Goldenson are now displaying final versions of their EDAR projects. Ashley is Dan Torop's talking computer that speaks knowledge from the Gottesman Libraries. Combining the least-popular popular searches from the Library catalogue and excerpts from selected library texts, users can conduct Ashley's song in subject, speed, and verse. Take up the giant controller and give it a try! Jeff Goldenson's StackView is an experiment in online browsing. It visualizes the Gottesman Libraries stacks in a zoomable, browsable, online platform inspired by Google's Street View. A high-res print out of the actual stacks provides a larger-scale context for the smaller images. Jeff's received a lot of attention for this project, including offers from other academic libraries to visualize their entire catalogues--so check out this very first version in our very own library! Up next in the LAB: Look forward to a final iteration of Dan Paluska's Broadcaster and a mini-display on The Media Show. And if you have an idea for a project you'd like to test out in the "LAB", let me know! The possibilities for TC colLABoration are endless.
