an evening showcasing new tools for artists, on the programme:
The Tagtool crew (AU) presents “Die haarsträubenden Irrfahrten des Hilti”, which can be roughly translated as “Hilti’s Oddyssey of Oddities”, and features the fearsome space mechanic Hilti who travels the universe together with, and inside, the careless spaceship known as Captain, on his way to the mythical Planet Huntopia, home of Commissioner Hun. The world’s first improvised animated live science fiction series.
SYNCHRONATOR is a video and audio research project by Gert-Jan Prins and Bas van Koolwijk in an attempt to use a combination of current digital and analogue means in order to make more use of the characteristic visual qualities of such techniques.
HOTGLUE is the new project by Danja Vasiliev of our moddr_lab. It is a website to build websites. Super easy. Pure creativity will prevail again. It’s as easy as making a collage, no technical skills are required. This night you’ll get a glimpse of HOTGLUE Content Manipulation System and a chat from developer Danja Vasiliev if the internet at the Piksel Festival (NO) is okay ;)
Streaming in live from Berlin, Adam Hyde will speak about the methodology FLOSS Manuals is pioneering to write a book in 2-5 days. These events are known as ‘Book Sprints’. Adam will talk about this process, and the forthcoming collaborative authoring and Book Sprint platform ‘Booki’ which is being developed by FLOSS Manuals. Adam is the Founder of FLOSS Manuals, a community whose central purpose is to write free manuals about free software. FLOSS Manuals has been operating on an entirely voluntary basis since 2007, and there are now over 1500 sign up contributors. FLOSS Manuals won the 2008 Open Source awards and was recently awarded a Honorary Mention at Ars Electronica, 2009.
In and around the bar area we will have a live-set by Logosamphia (Iran/NL) and an audio-visual installation by artist Jade Boyd ((AU/NO).
