DorkbotBRU#7
(in)visible hardware, custom-made electronics for artworks

In deze “geeky but arty” Dorkbot zullen we, los van de technische implementatie, de vraag behandelen over de uiting van het artistieke discours rond technologie. We zullen werken voorstellen waar hardware wel een zichtbaar, integraal deel is van het kunstwerk, maar niet het hoofdthema. Met Jasper Rigole, Gert Aertsen, Félix Luque en Jérôme Decock van het collectief LAb[au].

Programma:

Jasper Rigole and Gert Aertsen will present OUTNUMBERED, a brief history of imposture (2009), an installation that makes use of a computer-controlled camera. Its wandering on an old photographic document generates an aleatoric narrative using an extensive database of people who, in some way, are associated with imposture.

Félix Luque will talk about his digital alphanumeric display (8 giant size 1.6m sixteen-segment alphanumeric digits). Builded for "The dialogue", the 8 elements are parts of his installation Nihil ex Nihilo (2010), a Science fiction story about botnets, spam and a rebellious computer.

Jérôme Decock (LAb[au]) will conclude the evening with SwarmDots (2009), a generative artwork running on an 'art console' crafted by LAb[au] and presented as a scultpure.

This Dorkbot session will be streamed live on iMAL.tv
