Last month I’ve spent one week in Nancy in the Atelier de Recherche Typographique (located in my old school of art) to work with very nice people on a p2p & collaborative based project : InOut, initiated by the CiTu.
The idea is very simple : each artist or searcher present in this workshop came with an idea of an installation which needs some INs, exploits it, and then gives some OUTs (sound, video, or data). The installations are all connected together. The whole system exchanges are made in p2p, and the connections are reconfigurated when the needs change, so each work has to survive in a kind of organic system where data are like fluids.
This project isn’t autistic, so there is a global monitoring system, and each piece has to offer an interface, or at less something to see.
With Emilie, we proposed a project without any interface, a kind of tempo tapper using inherent feedback of the system, and only visible in the other works because of the rhythm of its impulsion. We’d like to create some choreographic of connections.
It was a very nice week, as you maybe can’t see with this freaky patchwork 🙂
It was only the first workshop ; we just started to define together all the protocols of the system. I’ll tell you more about it later.
