open-source

Shared by reBlog @ Eyebeam

Audiovisual technology has returned to spectacle. Artists are armed with new technologies for fusing space and image, sound and sight. What they tend not to have is permanent spaces. And that lack of venues has made audiovisual artists nomadic and provisional, constrained to hastily-provisioned, rectangular, sometimes dim projections. In short, for revolutions to happen, you do need special venues, not just special artists.

FLOSS Book Sprint: Digital Foundations

Eyebeam and FLOSS manuals got together to host the Digital Foundations FLOSSify book sprint! What does this mean?

It means that a group of artists and volunteers got together to translate the entire Digital Foundations text from an Adobe CS-based book to one that uses nothing but free, open-source software. All of the same exercises, all of the same design principles, but taught in step-by-step detail using free software anyone can download.
