BYOB Leicester happened on 4th August at the Fabrika Independent Arts Centre. It was an awesome event and there was lots of great artwork on show including video work and interactive pieces
I decided to show nearly all of my video works to date as well as some generative Pure Data patches. I also showed a bunch of new gifs that are similar to this style. I’ll unveil them to the world soon!
Till the next time, here’s a video of all of the BYOB Leicester action!
BYOB Birmingham happened on Friday 16th March and it was a great success! For those who like statistics, in the end the event had 18 artists (plus videos from VIVID’s archives), 22 beamers, and nearly 200 people attend.
My thanks for making the night awesome go to:
Flatpack Festival, which has been going for six years, for putting on a great festival and allowing BYOB to be part of it
VIVID, whose amazing gallery space was perfectly suited for this event. There were worries about there being too many cables and causing a power outage due to too many beamers, but the excellent VIVID staff were on hand to make sure it all went swimmingly
Bobby Bird from Modulate and Gary Judge (aka Arcade) for providing awesome music throughout the night. Many times I received comments about how well the music matched the event. Also, Cylob FTW!
Shelly Knotts, for being helping me on the day, taking photos, keeping me sane, and for buying me lunch 😉
Rafaël Rozendaal, for coming up with the BYOB idea and allowing anyone to do as they wish with it
The people of Birmingham and West Midlands, for coming out in your hundreds to support the event
And last, but not least, my thanks go to all of the artists that traveled from all over the country to be part of BYOB Birmingham!
If any of my readers took any gifs, photos or videos (even phone quality is great) upload them to Flickr/Youtube/Vimeo and tag them “BYOB Birmingham” or send them to email@example.com and, with your permission, they’ll be used in a video documenting the event.
