From 31 August to 5 September @ Promiscuous pipelinesPromiscuous pipelines'Universalism is not rejected but particularized; what is needed is a new kind of articulation between the universal and the particular' (Chantal Mouffe in: The Return of the political, 1993) → Call for participants → Worksession program In computation, a 'pipe' is a method to enable various software modules to connect to each other, where the output of one program is treated as the input for the next program. 'Pipes' form the basis of The Unix philosophy, a perspective on software production where multiple task-oriented tools can be chained together to make seemingly endless software combinations possible. While interchangeable and flexible, the assumption that each element (...)

From 2 July 00:00 to 7 August 01:00 @ Constant Constant VΠ­view - Stéphane Cousot + Stéfan PiatExhibition Π­view Opening 2 july – 18:00 A noisy street in Sint-Gilles. A shopping window in which a monitor and speakers show and play what happens further on in the street. A film without scenario in which the protagonists are the passers by, the cars, birds, the market salesmen.

The sound and images are captured and send live by a device constructed by the artists Stéphane Cousot et Stéfan Piat. Their installation invites to take time to watch, and to pay attention to potential events that will develop in a remote space. Π­view is part of (...)
From 1 to 2 August @ De Punt And more...Code, text and text-to-speechConstant members Michael Murtaugh and An Mertens will give a workshop on text, code and text-to-speech in the framework of the Hackers and Designers Summercamp organised in De Punt in Amsterdam. More about the workshop: Picture this: In 2084, after the decay of Google and the deprecation of the Web 2.0 darknet, the web is reconstructed using the sustainable IRC protocol. In place of the burned-out centralized data centers created at the turn of the century, software in this new network is deployed as lightweight interogable bots in ad-hoc mesh networks and are rewritten and mutated as needed. Different bots crawl the different archives (archive.org, wikipedia, google, gitorious) and (...)
