The project that we suggest to present, is a workshop based in apply our proposal graphic representation (model) of the creative process and interdisciplinary work: “Electronic Art Project; creative processes and interdiscipline”.
That model will help artists and students to produce a concise and coherent artistic discourse and facilitate the interdisciplinary practice by contribute with a common language, also provides a guide for creating pieces of electronic art. It will also help academics to classify, analyze and create reflexions around this kind of art, which includes forms of animation, audiovisual installation and new media.
Also we propose to give a conference based in our research of creative process in collaborative groups of electronic art. This proposal includes a final presentation of an electronic art piece (which in fact is inspired in the Greek myth of Orchis*) generated from the structure of our model.
* Orchid - Orchis mascula
Orchidaceae get their name from the Greek ὄρχις (órkhis), which literally means "testicle", a nod to the naughty nub shape of their roots. In Greek mythology, Orchis was the son of an ugly nymph and a satyr who came upon a festival for Dionysios deep in the woods. Liking his fermented grapes a wee bit too much, he overindulged on wine then tried to have his way with a priestess of Dionysios. As a result the Bacchanalians tore him limb from limb. His grieving father prayed to the Gods for him to be restored. Not that keen on men who assert themselves on unwilling young women, they turned him into a flower instead.
