Core-members

- An Mertens (Brussels * nl/fr/en/es)
An Mertens works as an artist, writer and storyteller. With the project Adashboard (for fiction) she looked into narratives that are non-linear and ubiquitous thanks to their net-native character. In 2009 An put in place the performance group Colapsekode n order to experiment with modes of collaborative authorship, including the motion tracking software objsrcs as an equal partner. In September 2013 her experimental novel Tot Later was launchedwith the publishing house De Bezige Bijs Antwerpen. Since 2016 An explores the narrative perspective of self learning algorithms within her own personal research and Algolit, a workgroup on how algorithms and code transform (literary) creation that lead to digital an print-publications, installations, walks, performances. An reports about her own work on paramoulipist.be, the name being a declaration of love for parameters and Oulipian practices.

- Femke Snelting (Brussels * nl/fr/en)
Femke Snelting works as artist and designer, developing projects at the intersection of design, feminism and free software. In various constellations she has been exploring how digital tools and practices might co-construct each other. With Jara Rocha she activates Possible Bodies, a collective research project that interrogates the concrete and at the same time fictional entities of “bodies” in the context of 3D tracking, modelling and scanning. She co-initiated the design/research team Open Source Publishing (OSP) and formed De Geuzen (a foundation for multi-visual research) with Renée Turner and Riek Sijbring. Femke teaches at the Piet Zwart Institute (experimental publishing, Rotterdam) and is currently curator of the Research Centre at a.pass.

- Peter Westenberg (Brussels * nl/fr/en/de)
Peter Westenberg is visual artist and film- and video-maker.The website videomagazijn.org collects works realised after 1998 that range from printed matter to films and interactive media and show an interest in visual exploration, social myths, psycho-geography, media representation and sentimental journeys. His projects evolve from an interest in social cartography, urban anomalies and the relationships between locative identity and cultural geography. He interrogates notions of public space, community and social place through collages, video and shared authorship projects. The projects Parlez-Vous Saint-Gillois? and La Langue Schaerbeekoise are participatory audio projects, databases, urban interventions, walks and broadcasts around cross cultural, assembled, deformed and invented words that are spoken in multi-lingual neighborhoods in Brussels. In 2015 hinitiates the European project Iterations that explores he future of artistic collaboration in digitally networked contexts.

- Wendy Van Wynsberghe (Brussels * nl/fr/en)
Wendy Van Wynsberghe is a DIY and digital artist, sound & field recorder, in love with nature and its wildlife, fascinated by the protocol in all its forms, including inter-human and non-human relations, script coder, physical computing aficionado, net neutrality custodian, dabbling in embroidery, crochet & knitting (with or without eTextiles). Since 2004 she was involved in the project Ellentriek that organized a series of open hardware workshops where artists worked together on their projects, mostly thematic. From 2015 to 2016 she organised Objects in common, a series of eventsthat explored “other ways of doing” such as design for functional diversity, situated digital manufacturing in for example African cities. She works with electronics, textile, sounds, open hardware, using only free software, all work under a free art license.
