Just like last year, I’m organizing a SPEED SHOW next Thursday, July 21st, in Berlin. A SPEED SHOW is an exhibition format developed by Aram Bartholl.

The basic idea of this exhibition format is to create a gallery like opening situation for browser based internet art in a public cyber-cafe / internet-shop for one night. The exhibition format is free and can be applied by anyone at any place.

The titel of this years SPEED SHOW is “YOUR BROWSER IS MY KINGDOM”. There won’t be just animated gifs, but all kinds of different browser artworks.

So I invite you all to come and bring you friends and your friends’ friends!
Here are the details for the SPEED SHOW:

Thursday 21th of July 2011, 20:00 – 23:00
or@nien net
Oranienstrasse 185, Berlin
(google maps link)

You can also rsvp for this event on Facebook.

I really like this 3D ASCII Animated GIF. It appeared in an article about making 3D GIFs from 2D source on weekly ascii. If anyone know who’s the creator, please let me know.

Face Visualizer by Daito Manabe @ Transmediale

February 8th, 2011

Last Friday I had the chance to see Daito Manabe perform with his Face Visualizer live during the Transmediale festival in Berlin. The Face Visualizer is a tool which lets people’s faces move artificially in sync with music through electroshocks produced with the Max/MSP programming platform. I’m pretty sure you’ve seen the videos of his first tests like these ones here.
He performed together with Ei Wada, who definitely was quite surprised by some of the electroshocks.

The day before the performance, Daito held a presentation of his work at the agency I work for. Not only was he kind enough to do so, he also brought me a present: my own Pa++ern t-shirt. Pa++ern is a project he did together with Motoi Ishibashi, it was basically an embroidery machine connected to twitter.
