gifCollider

GIF (Graphical Interchange Format) animations are the street art of the internet and the twitchings of our collective subconsious. Archive.org stores such gif animations in the millions so that future generations won't miss a single frame of the history of human consciousness as it emerged on the backlit glow of the browser nation. gifCollider, A public show of Niemeyer's attempt to digest this history ran from Oct. 25 to Oct. 28, 2016, at BAMPFA. The project was a collaboration with Olya Dubatova, Brewster Kahle, archive.org and many others. It now continues at the Magnes Museum for Jewish Art and Life exhibition "The Power of Attention" , Berkeley CA, with "Night Vision", a version of gifCollider based on Zechariah 4.1. It will be on display through 2017.

Engagement Index

In 2012, with a grant from the UC Office of the President, Greg Niemeyer developed a novel peer-to-peer gallery evaluation system for teaching Humanities courses online. The resulting tools, now called C Suite, are used in online courses throughout the UC System. One aspect of the tool suite is the Engagement Index, which tracks studet efforts in posting artworks and gaining feedback from peers. Points for interactions are tracked reciprocally so both reviewer and reviewee score Engagement Index points for a comment posted by a reviewer. Collaborators in this project include John Scott and the amaziong staff at UC Berkeley Educational Technology Services. The tools are compatible with Canvas, and are available by agreement from UC Berkeley. C Suite is still in active development, with new versions every 12 months.

Data Arts

In conjuction with novel UC Online course offerings, Greg Niemeyer developed a new course engaging ethical questions about the collection, dissemination and analysis of personal and environmental data. One of the first UC Berkeley courses to be offered online only via uconline, it emphasizes human expereience over efficiency as it leverages the unique online teahcing format as a theme for the core question of the course: How do people form communities online, and who benefits from online data.
