This Week @ UNM / ARTS Lab

Three events in the ARTS Lab world this week at UNM.

First, all day Thursday, students will have their new games on display for the CS/ECE 433 Video Game Competition.  The public can try its hand at the games in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Building atrium from 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM, with judges reviewing the games from 5:30 - 7:00 PM. Several Awards will be given for best games, people's choice and most creative games.
WHEN:  9:00 AM - 5:00 PM (Public Play); 5:30 - 7:00 PM Judges Review, Thursday 12/6
WHERE:  ECE Atrium @ UNM (Main Campus)

Each year, UNM Cinematic Arts' "Word & Image" video production class produces several stand-out short movies, many of which have gone on to acclaim at festival showings and beyond.  This year, five production teams will show their short movies at UNM's ARTS Lab Garage (more info to come).
WHEN:  6:30 - 8:00 PM, Thursday, 12/6
WHERE:  ARTS Lab Garage, 131 Pine St, NE (One block west of University, half a block north of Central)

Digital Rights Management (DRM), the control, tracking, and pay structure for distribution of digital media from music to movies, TV shows and games, is a hot-button issue for students, business people, and the creators of content alike (among other things, it's closely related to the ongoing WGA writers strike).  How do media companies enforce restrictions on download and distribution of music and movies?  Why have Apple's iTunes and the group Radiohead achieved such success?  Join us at the ARTS Lab Garage this Friday when ECE Professor Greg Heileman leads the audience through a game that simulates the DRM decision-making process to show which activities work for media companies, and which behaviors will likely lead to prosecution.
WHEN:  2:00 - 4:00 PM, Friday 12/7
WHERE:  ARTS Lab Garage, 131 Pine St, NE (One block west of University, half a block north of Central)
