Here it is! The Digital Artists Handbook!

WHAT?
The Handbook is a new, up to date, reliable and accessible source of information that introduces artists and students to different tools, resources and ways of working related to digital art with a strong focus on the use of Free/Libre/Open Source Software (FLOSS).

HOW?
The goal of the Handbook is to be a signpost, a source of practical information and content that bridges the gap between new users and the platforms and resources that are available, but not always very accessible. The Handbook will be slowly filled with articles written by invited artists, theoreticians and practitioners from a wide range of media art and media design fields.

packets-prototype.jpg

The aim of the project is to provide tools, guidelines and food for thought in the fields of real-time media processing. To this end we are creating open and integrated software, hardware and documentation. These evolving tools are tuned for, but not limited to, audiovisual performances, installations, visualisation systems… Packets attempts to provide an artistic approach to software development and possibly a new way of defining your own creative tools and eventually your own language. The main idea behind packets is in the name: digital art = throwing around data packets. Our approach is extreme modularity: combining small, simple pieces of hardware and software to create more complex, emerging objects.

Packets is a collaboration between Aymeric Mansoux, Tom Schouten and Marloes de Valk.

For more information, please visit the project site http://packets.goto10.org

The Packets project is made possible with support from the Digital Research Unit.

Le projet Packets a pour objectif de proposer des outils, des manuels d’utilisation et des compléments d’information pour la réflexion dans les champs du traitement informatique temps-réel sous la forme de logiciels, de matériel informatique et de documentation, ouverts et intégrés.

Ces outils en constante évolution, sont conçus (mais de pas manière restrictive) pour les performances audiovisuelles, les installations, les systèmes de visualisation,… Packets tente d’offrir une approche artistique au développement de logiciels et souhaite rendre possible une nouvelle manière de définir ses propres outils de création et éventuellement son propre langage. L’idée majeure derrière Packets réside dans son nom : les arts numériques consistent à manipuler des données par paquets. Notre projet Packets s’inscrit dans une dynamique de modularité extrême : la combinaison de petits fragments, de simples pièces logicielles et hardware pour aboutir à une création plus complexe, faisant apparaître des objets.

Packets est une collaboration entre Aymeric Mansoux, Tom Schouten et Marloes de Valk. (tous les 3 membres de GOTO10).

Pour plus d’informations, visitez le site du projet : http://packets.goto10.org.

Le projet Packets bénéficie du soutien du DRUH, Unité de recherche numérique de l’Université de Huddersfield (GB).

    workshop “Go Forth!” @ Futuresonic


    posted by contact on June 15th, 2006 -

    workshop go forth!

    Go forth! script realtime graphics & build your own lofi 8bit synthesizer

    Go forth! is a 2 day workshop in which you will build your own mini lofi synthesizer using a PIC chip. Because fresh tunes simply taste better with some eye candy, we’ll also teach you how to make realtime graphics. If your heart starts beating faster every time you hear the fabulous 8bit sounds of the gameboy classic or atari, this workshop is for you. The first day we’ll introduce you to scripting realtime graphics. You’ll learn how to create complex visuals using only a few lines of code. The second day is all about PIC chips. Using cheap small components, you’ll build your own tiny synthesizer. Visuals and 8bit sound meet each other at the happy end of the workshop.

    You’ll go home with a pure:dyne live cd, containing all the software used in the workshop (and much much more). Go Forth! is based on 100% FLOSS (Free Libre Open Source Software).

    GOTO10 at SPACE MEDIA ARTS

    A two week boot camp dedicated to free software and open hardware in the field of media art.

    Pure Data is a free and open source real-time graphical programming environment used by artists to create a range of visual arts, theatre, dance, audio, installation, performance and media art works.

    Pure Data is ideal for those looking to integrate technology into their work for the first time, or advanced media artists looking to explore new tools and new ways to combine them in a unified environment. It is easy to use Pure Data to create interactive environments, link animations and sound, control hardware and electronics, stream audio, generate real time visuals and develop interfaces for other programs. more
