TOP MODEL

New Models, New Frontiers, New Strategies

The arts and culture sector is in desperate need of a new paradigm.. For too long, large artistic institutions have absorbed a disproportionate amount of resources and have overshadowed the work of fellow art makers in the cultural ecosystem.

 

With the introduction of new technology allowing unprecedented connection between creators and consumers, artists are quickly discovering more democratic, accessible, and innovative ways to create, produce, and fund the creation of their art.

Scott Walters (Director of CRADLE) predicts that the next frontier in arts innovation is not in the space or form, but rather, the business model. Pointing to innovations like crowdfunding or the increasingly inventive pricing models of the video game industry, Walters argues that new models are a much needed inevitability.

Need some pricing inspiration? Professors Sandeep Baliga and Jeff Ely of Northwestern University discuss new effective pricing strategies with Harvard Business Review's blog.

Finally, Arts leader and researcher Diane Ragsdale reminds us that as we discover new business models, we must remember that market forces often encourage us to make less moral decisions. "Though we may be in it, we are not to be of this market-driven world." Ragsdale urges artists to continue finding the balance between economics and ethics.

Dear Readers:

I recently encountered a constituent who didn’t understand the numbers and the abbreviations (KB/kb) and (MB/mb) after files attached to an email.  I decided to find a primer for those who might like to see how equivalents work in the computer world.  Generally speaking one can’t send an email with more than 10MB total in one email.  A combination of text files and images up to 10 MB is acceptable by those with high speed downloads to their computer, but with dial-up connections and slower Internet speeds it is better to stay at 500 KB or less.  Even I am trying to learn new ways to send out more information using less Kilobytes and Megabytes and still provide key information.  KBH
· 1 Bit = Binary Digit
· 8 Bits = 1 Byte
· 1000 Bytes = 1 Kilobyte
· 1000 Kilobytes = 1 Megabyte
· 1000 Megabytes = 1 Gigabyte
· 1000 Gigabytes = 1 Terabyte
· 1000 Terabytes = 1 Petabyte
· 1000 Petabytes = 1 Exabyte -
· 1000 Exabytes = 1 Zettabyte
· 1000 Zettabyte = 1 Yottabyte
· 1000 Yottabyte = 1 Brontobyte
Now let's go into a little more detail.

Multimedia Submissions and Logo Contest!

Posted on June 17, 2013 by slclumina

LUMINA has two ground-breaking and exciting announcements today. The first is a call for submissions for our first ever Multimedia Issue, and the second an official logo contest.

LUMINA is pleased to announce the opening of submissions for our first ever Multimedia Issue!

We’re looking for unique fiction, poetry, non-fiction, visual art and audio work. All genres are welcome; slam poetry and script-work is encouraged.

Here’s the twist: Every submission must have an audio as well as a visual component. Some examples are a poem and a reading of that poem, a radio drama with an accompanying transcript, or a painting with a reading of a poem. Ideally, we would like to see a wide variety, so be creative.

The art and writing will be printed in the physical book and will be twinned with the audio accompaniment on our website. Simply send us an audio file along with the written and artistic work.

SPECIAL SECTION

July/August 2013 issue

7.01.13

 

When I first entered the offices of Simon & Schuster as an intern seven years ago, I half expected to find rooms heavy with pipe smoke and equipped with decanters of whiskey, their inhabitants ensconced in the quiet seriousness of a library. Instead, I found an ordinary office in midtown Manhattan alive with the ringing of phones, endless photocopying, and assistants scurrying from cubicle to cubicle. An ordinary office, yes—except that it was teeming with books. They were everywhere. They spilled off of shelves and hid in the corners of conference rooms. Boxes of them obstructed hallways. Their jacket art adorned every wall. . .
