NODE - Forum for Digital Arts
The purpose of NODE is to facilitate the exchange between art, design and engineering in interactive and generative media. The 'NODE - Forum for Digital Arts' emerged in 2008 from an initiative of associates of MESO who at the same time had been developers and users of the graphical programming language vvvv.
At first, NODE was meant to support the community of people using vvvv to create artistic and creative software projects, but it quickly changed into an international forum for knowledge exchange between designers, artists and engineers of various fields believing in the powers of programming and digital technologies. NODE08 turned out to be a one week-long rush of discussions, theoretical and practical lectures and workshops, artist presentations and events.
NODE10 should go way beyond NODE08. So, the focus of this year's lectures and exhibition 'abstrakt Abstrakt' is the investigation of cultural consequences of a post-industrialized, technological society. The workshops and open lab complement the theoretical views with practical hands on workshops about vvvv and related programming environments. Participants look into the subjects through workshops and talks combined with subsequent symposiums and live performances.
NODE10 – Forum for Digital Arts is an event in cooperation with the Frankfurter Kunstverein.
Again we thank you for the huge amount of awesome works that you have submitted in reaction to our call for submissions. In several intensive sessions we tried to find a balance between artistic and playful - digital and analogue works.
To accentuate the highly creative atmosphere around the NODE venues we created a special space in the former "diamond bourse", now called MA*. It is an old shopping center that is nowadays scene for exhibitions, performances and creative space for students and artists.
NODE Deluxe shows selected works from:
Jonas Bohatsch, Florian Egermann, Jürgen Graef & Jonas Friedemann Heuer, Florian Jenett, Philipp Sackl, Stefan Schwabe, James Snazzell, Daniel Stempfer, Daniel Tauber
November 16-20, from 10.00am – 8.30pm
Ma*, Stephanstr. 1-3, 60313 Frankfurt am Main
