// Dagli Oggetti Narrativi Non Identificati agli Audiovisivi Non identificati //

Nelle lettere italiane sta accadendo qualcosa. Il convergere in un'unica - ancorché vasta - nebulosa narrativa di parecchi scrittori .... In genere scrivono romanzi, ma non disdegnano puntate nella saggistica e in altri reami, e a volte producono "oggetti narrativi non-identificati". Diversi loro libri sono divenuti best-seller à diverse, ma sono una generazione letteraria: condividono segmenti di poetiche, brandelli di mappe mentali e un desiderio feroce che ogni volta li riporta agli archivi, o per strada, o dove archivi e strada coincidone/o long-seller in Italia e altri paesi. Non formano una generazione in senso anagrafico, perché hanno età diverse, ma sono una generazione letteraria: condividono segmenti di poetiche, brandelli di mappe mentali e un desiderio feroce che ogni volta li riporta agli archivi, o per strada, o dove archivi e strada coincidono.

// Teoria e Laboratorio - La miglior dimostrazione è l'esperienza //
Il media design come disciplina di ricerca mostra i limiti delle idee e delle riflessioni che riguardano cose che non possono essere oggetto di esperienza; in questo senso la teoria assume una funzione normativa, indirizza a uno scopo, in vista del quale le linee direttive di tutte le regole convergono. E' la causa. Mentre la pratica delle New Media art (sia audiovisivo, documentario, media art, video art, interactive art, net art) si pone come catalizzatore e rende possibile il manifestarsi dell'effetto del pensiero.

New Media Art Education & Research 2009, along with the issue of the Workshop/Theory, wants to open a new reflection that starts with the Unidentified Narrative Objects, in other words what are students of the Media Design & Multimedia Art producing? Short films, video clips, art videos, short feature films, music clips, simple audiovisual artifacts, or a sort of junk? This reflection makes of the New Italian Epic narratological paradigm, conceived and proposed by Wu Ming, a benchmark for the critics.

-The idea is that the audiovisual media, as well as the New Media art, could face a new paradigm, that can be found in the question about the UNOs, Unidentified Narrative Objects.

- These UNOs can be about the audiovisual media, and include the concept of the 'Garage media', a self-legitimated cultural spontaneous attitude, both technical and critical, in fact "today’s video cameras, recording systems and the editing have sustainable costs for everybody, and the arrival of ‘personal media’ is a reality. Television cameras are embedded both in mobile phones and in personal computers. Video self- production is an effect of family television cameras. Moreover with the arrival of the 2.0 web a large quantity of video content realized in sequence and precarious editing are on the web". These materials can represent the content for a New Italian Epic for the Audiovisual media, and on the other hand it can be "an answer to a techno-narrative bulimia which is in search of some kind of feature and canon", and so it can become a sort of massified junk of literature and cinema( today maybe it is better to use the term volgarized);

[note from http://endofthevideo.blogspot.com/]

The New Italian Epic is a tool to create canon memorandum, which uses “both the New Media Art and the Audiovisual media as a research ‘device’”.

However if the research in the New Media Art has a cultural ‘aspect’ (Moholy Nagy, McLuhan, Kluivert, Lippard, Burnham, Ascott, Zielinsky, Shanken, Lonvink, Hauser, Bulatov) the works produced keep their dignity within the paradigm. That can be seen in the work of OtheretO

[http://www.wikiartpedia.org/index.php?title=OtherehtO]

or, quoting another paradigm-work, of the most famous Darko Maver of 01.org

[http://www.0100101110101101.org/home/darko_maver/index.html]

Things change with the Audiovisual media.

Feature films by Alina Marazzi are superficially defined as ‘documentaries’, though that definition is not right [http://www.unorasola.it/]
[http://www.vogliamoanchelerose.it/]

Also the work by director Marianna Schivardi is classified as a documentary, though it’s not right

[http://thebigbother.blogspot.com/]

Even the works by the 'patron saint' of the new Werner Herzog cinema are classified as documentaries, though they are not.

[http://www.wildblueyonder.wernerherzog.com/]

-The UNO is the product of

-NEW MEDIA ( media approach)

-NEW STORIES

-NEW SENSITIVITIES

-NEW OBJECTIVES

-NEW MARKETS (?)

Within two/three months we will held a conference in the NABA Academy to define the first paradigm FROM THE ONE TO THE NEW ITALIAN EPIC Audiovisual media;

Any reflection, encouragement and idea will be appreciated.
