APOIEO @ National Poetry Library

posted by rob on August 3rd, 2011 -

For three weeks this summer GOTO10′s APIOEO project will be hacking the city in and around the Southbank Center London – As part of the 60th aniversary of the Festival of Britian, The National Poetry Library in association with
KALEID editions have curated a series of poetic interventions in the envions of the Royal Festival Hall and the Saison Poetry Library. GOTO10 will be remixing the database of the poetry library and generating new poetic interpretations of the content using some funky little computer codes, the resultant poems are then set free into the wireless airwaves where unsuspecting hunters of free wifi are subjected to the poetry in the form of dozens of constantly changing rouge access points!

posted by rob on May 14th, 2011 -

This year’s event offers an exhibition, artists’ workshops and – like every year – lectures, presentations and sound-performances.

claude will be playing live on Friday night with RDEX noisy audio-visual reaction-diffusion explorations, and GULCII live coding untyped lambda calculus with visualisation and sonification of the internal interpreter state (implemented in Haskell with GTK and Cairo, sending messages to Pure-data for the sonification).

by rob will be presented as an eight channel live streaming sound installation in the Kunstuniversität.

GOTO10 are the current and last artists group in residency at Grand Union for the SEARCH ENGINE project. Over the course of their residency, from 16 April to 30 April, GOTO1O will be working in the gallery space, developing the project /points of presence/

Event: Thursday 28 April, 12 – 8 pm: Open studio day and project presentation 6.30 – 8 pm: Project presentation by Rob Canning and Barbara Kukovec

SEARCH ENGINE, curated by Marialaura Ghidini, is a six-week open-residencies programme aimed at facilitating new processes of production, collaborative research and forms of distribution.

For SEARCH ENGINE Grand Union has invited three artists groups – Manu Luksch & Mukul Patel, American Mountains, GOTO10 – to work in the project space for two weeks each; taking as their departure point the investigation of the complex relationship between history and technology, and the way it connects to the Grand Union locale, Digbeth (Birmingham).

workshop “Copy-pasting… combining the collective imagination” 25/26/27 Nov 2010

posted by thomas on November 19th, 2010 -

Copy-pasting... combining the collective imagination

We’re glad to invite Jérôme Abel to give a workshop in the framework of the “Figures of Interactivity” Biennial.

“Copy-pasting… combining the collective imagination”
Emancipation and drifts around the tools for art.

The aim of the workshop is to build an hybrid, digital artwork prototype based on copy-pasting.
Reusing existing works is the rule in free and open source environment. Datas, libraries of functions, memory locations, can all be transported, altered, recorded. Besides the assembly is a very effective method for learning techniques as it’s based on experience. Starting from various sources of information (files, artworks, sensors, etc..) that will feed our algorithms, our program will be shaped connection by connection.
The students will be familiarized with the graphical programming environment Pure Data, along with Unix commands and networking protocols.

The workshop is taught by Jérôme Abel, member of the artist collective Impala Utopia.

When? 25, 26 and 27 November 2010, 9:30-17:30
Where? EESI, Poitiers (France)
Entrance: free
Language: French
Registration: please send us an email with a few lines explaining your motivations to attend the workshop

make art 2010, 4-7 November, Poitiers (FR)

in-between design

make art
festival of free art and technologies
from 4 to 7 november 2010
Maison de l’Architecture, Poitiers

« in-between design: rediscovering collaboration in digital art »

make art is an international festival dedicated to free/libre arts and technologies, distributed digital artworks and net art. The sixth edition of make art focuses on works halfway between art and design, collaborative, scalable and participative methods. The adventure “in-between design” begins here, to be imagined in this creative development, where everyone can participate and where artwork keeps on evolving. Are these projects just curiosities or a real alternative to the graphic conformism ruled by an industry that dictates its aesthetic codes? Please come and join us to answer this question…


z→z²+c released on GOSUB10

posted by Claude on October 20th, 2010 -


z→z²+c from ClaudiusMaximus is GOSUB10‘s third release, by a sad coincidence arriving soon after the passing of Benoît Mandelbrot: our thoughts go out to his family and friends at this time.

The Mandelbrot set is possibly the world’s most famous fractal. z→z²+c is a series of sonifications, focussing on the periodic attractors found almost everywhere within the Mandelbrot set. Given just two real numbers (forming one point in the complex plane), dynamic patterns can emerge as the one simple equation governing the system is repeated over and over: z→z²+c


Call for participation – workshop “Peer-To-Peer Design Strategies” 3/4/5 Nov

posted by thomas on October 20th, 2010 -

workshop by Emanuele Bonetti (Italy) during make art 2010 festival in Poitiers, France

max 6 participants

During the workshop participants will be asked to complete a design commission using an alternative peer-to-peer collaboration method.

The aim of the workshop is to complete one finished work of graphic design that all the participants find satisfying. This workshop serves as a test case and experiment to show that peer-to-peer design methodologies can serve as a serious alternative to traditional, hierarchical design project work flow.
