Libre Graphics Research Unit – Meeting at Bergen (Norway)
…the Libre Graphics Research Unit, a collaboration between Medialab Prado (Madrid), Worm (Rotterdam), Piksel (Bergen) and Constant. actively engaged in Free/Libre and Open Source Software and Free Culture…
representing (myself) Medialab Prado (Madrid), together with Chris Sugrue!
a big honor and a pleasure.
The meeting was titled Piksels and Lines and had “a particular focus on improvements, interoperability between and fringe use of F/LOSS graphic bitmap and vector software, as well as generative software used in performative contexts.”
I could talk actively with artists, designers and coders. The best people around.
The last day we organized an amazing audiovisual performance, a circular network were FLOSS programs were hacked to send their actions on the network, so the data could then be visulized and sonified. Each participant worked really hard on it’s part, and the whole emerged with amazing strength. Transdisciplinary collaborative work at it’s best.
I built a PureData patch that could open the bitmaps that were produced and generate sound from their RGB values. A spektral delay was added in order to get a better spatial effect.
