CrystalPunk Workshop – 12,13,14 November
Friday, 4 November 2005
’Hidden in the former utility area of a vacant 13 floor office in Utrecht, the “Crystalpunk Workshop for Soft Architecture” will evolve an empty room from nothingness into unknown states of technological enhancement. Unlike the alphabet that always knows where it is going, this workshop does not.’
I’ll be out of the London game next weekend for a visit to the Crystal Punk Workshop for Soft Architecture in Utrecht. Along with other crystallographers ill be presenting some ideas/images/videos/diagrams relating to the speculative fiction and science of Crystal Punk.
As part of the ‘Making it so’ afternoon, Sunday 13 November 15.00-18.00, I’ll be looking at autocatalytic image making, machines and techniques for self-reflective pattern generation. From recursive algorithms through to digital video feedback.
Other’s involved that weekend include:
Pete Gomes, from Mutantfilms, Who will be presenting some of his film/video work. Peter’s work operates at the intersection between cinema and computers, experimental cinema nurtured within the landscape of emergent digital technologies.
Inga Zimprich, Artist and co-founder of Thinktank – a project in which open source programmers and artists are developing software which supports non-commercial social collaboration.
’ The Crystalpunk Workshop for Soft Architecture will from Friday 11 to Sunday 13 November be open for crystalpunks and public to work, learn and discuss what is needed to develop soft architecture.’
