Unfolding Space

Unfolding Space

Event 1: An evening about interactive spaces & code

On Tuesday evening September 10, the first edition of Coded Matter(s) will focus on the development of interactive and sensory spaces. Software is now managing parts of our city and even influencing the way we interact socially. New ways of experiencing space are arising with the use of sensors, projections and mobile technology. Artists and designers are responding to this with room-sized installations, interactive dance performances and ‘augmented’ environments. These developments are completely transforming our perceptions of space and media. Expect an evening with talks, showcases and a dance performance.

Graffitizer, Daniel Berio [IT]

Algorithmic graffiti installation

Daniel Berio (1978) is a programmer and designer from Florence, Italy. Resulting from years of experience as a graffiti artist, his ArtScience research is an attempt at merging the aesthetics of his own style of graffiti letters with algorithmic art. He is developing generative graffiti algorithms whose output is fed to physical drawing machines and augmented with real-time projections, mixing real ink with projected light as a painterly medium. Two graffitizers will be displayed at the first Coded Matter(s) event.
