From 14-21 October I was in the beautiful town of Arles for Databit.me #2. It was all really amazing! I had the privilege of being in the presence of so many talented and creative individuals, including Jankenpopp, Gijs Gisekes, Tapetronic and Axel Debeul, who all were very happy to share their knowledge and skills.
Much of the week was spent working on the Open Camera project. The aim was to find a cheap and affordable way to capture images. My solution was to use a Raspberry Pi and digital photo frame to build a very simple script that glitched images from a webcam
Later in the week the performances from the resident artists and my presentation – alongside Sébastien Magro, Jacques Perconte, Yannick Vernet and Alexandre Simonet – took place. There’s no video recording of the presentation yet, but hopefully it’ll emerge soon!
My performance at the closing party – although only 10 minutes long – marked my first ever solo audio and visual performance. There’s no video (yet) of this, but it sounded and looked a lot like the preview video.
I’ll do detailed writeups of some of the achievements of the week, but until then enjoy this video documentation of performances from other artists:
