Keiichi Matsuda & James Alliban will talk about digital identities and will present C E L L and interactive interactive installation commissioned for Alpha-ville Festival 2011. This interactive installation plays with and proposes alternative landscapes in the technological ether surrounding our everyday movements. As our identities become deliberately constructed and broadcast commodities, our projected personae increasingly enmesh and define us. Cell acts as a virtual mirror, displaying a constructed fictional persona in place of our physical form. Composed from keyword tags mined from online profiles, these second selves stalk our movements through space, building in size and density over time. The resulting forms are alternate, technologically refracted manifestations of the body, revealing the digital aura while simultaneously allowing us escape from our own constructed identities.

Tired of having your ideas shot down at work? Fed up with departmental barriers between you and the big decision makers? Well friends, in this presentation I'm going to show you how you can successfully deliver breakthrough ideas even in the harshest corporate environments and do the sort of work you've always dreamed of doing. You probably already know everything there is to know about how to innovate, sure you do, you're the "ideas guy". The real problem is that your organisation is just paying lip-service to innovation or it's too complacent, bureaucratic or risk averse to do anything about it. In fact, 75% of innovation investments by organisations never make it to market. I'll show you how to stop your ideas getting diluted, or even worse polluted, and reveal how to fulfil your true potential. So stop spinning your wheels and prepare to see your breakthrough ideas actually break through.
