Cimatics presents
Cimatics, Brussels International Platform for Live A/V, presents a Masterclass Live Audiovisual Art, within the framework of the studio-program Experimental Media-art provided by the VAF (the Flemish Audiovisual Fund).
Because the biggest merit of live A/V is its cross-border and cross-disciplinary character the masterclass will challenge its participants to do just that: collaborate.

The goal of this blog is to generate an open-source effect: opening up the discussions from within the masterclass to the rest of the world. Let this be a call for everyone to participate and join or start a debate.
Eventually, this blog will be printed as a book. An additional DVD with the open-source versions (Creative Commons license) of the participants masterclass-projects will be available afterwards. So if you post something to this blog, you are co-authoring the book.

application for fogscreen

This is an application that WHITEvoid did for the entrance area of a 360 degree cinema. Visitors step right through the dry mist and get surrounded by free floating animations. It features the famous fogscreen projection technology by

Nova is a cubical grid of color-tunable, computer-controlled LEDs that functions as a 3-dimensional, 16-million-color video display.

bit.fall by Julius Popp

German-born artist Julius Popp has developed a technological device to make a waterfall of a liquid screen. Each drop of water is a falling pixel. This technology also allows big three dimensional installations to permit various uses of this work in such areas as those of publicity and the commercial events.

“bit.fall” - a machine that controls falling streams and drips of water to create beautiful, and incredibly temporary, words and images. It’s almost like aquatic data visualization. Described by Popp himself as a “metaphor for the incessant flood of information we are exposed to”, the end result is just incredibly beautiful.

Julius Popp is interested in the process of recycling that which appears to disappear in the structure of information more than the message Bit-fall can carry.

dessert speaking

Dear masterclassers,
as you can see I already posted some pictures I have some video taped but the computers here are first of all very slow and most of the time naked I am now looking at a bunch of wires
The thing that interest me the most are the sound you here the whole day long
especially the claxons of the cars they make conversations with eachother
And then the dessert aaaahhh....the beautifull silence and the endless emptyness
It felt onreal

special delivery for Ambra
I am leaving the 23 of march and I am gonna spend the last 2 days back in Cairo
Alexandria is not on the scheduale because I am now in the south in Aswan than the felucca to luxor and spending some time in Dahab to start my search for the bleu painted rocks
I dont have my mobile with me but I search often for the internet places sow if you send me your plans then we can get together in Cairo maybe
greetz from a very happy person
