For anybody that might happen to be in Holland on the 27 this month

RGB Neighbors is a one-day festival of artists film and video, taking place in Leeuwarden, Netherlands, on Saturday 27th. March.

http://www.vhdg.nl/vhdg.php

The festival focusses on two countries, Norway and Sweden. Curators for the two programmes are Jeremy Welsh (Norway) and Gunnel Pettersson (Sweden).  Each country presents a selection of recent artists’ work, plus a special presentation of young artists / students from the two countries. In addition there will be music/video performances featuring collaboration between Dutch and Norwegian/Swedish artists.

In the publicity, they advertise it as “Norway vs. Sweden”!  Who will win? Will the Swedes in the Norwegian team change sides in the middle of the match? A full report, with edited highlights and action replays will be posted after the end of the event 🙂

Field: Open source digital art environment……

The technical frontier of digital art is no longer what computers can do, but how we get them to do it.

Field is a development environment for experimental code and digital art in the broadest of possible senses. While there are a great many development environments and digital art tools out there today, this one has been constructed with two key principles in mind:

  • Embrace and extend — rather than make a personal, private and pristine code utopia, Field tries to bridge to as many libraries, programming languages, and ways of doing things as possible. The world doesn’t necessarily need another programming language or serial port library, nor do we have to pick and choose between data-flow systems, graphical user interfaces or purely textual programming — we can have it all in the right environment and we can both leverage the work of others and take control of our own tools and methods.
  • Live code makes anything possible — Field tries to replace as many “features” with editable code as it can. Its programming language of choice is Python — a world class, highly respected and incredibly flexible language. As such, Field is intensely customizable, with the glue between interface objects and data modifiable inside Field itself. Field takes seriously the idea that its user — you — are a programmer / artist doing serious work and that you should be able to reconfigure your tools to suit your domain and style as closely as possible.
