Tagtool Think Tank 09Posted on March 18th, 2009 | By Oma | Category: Development, Events
Tagtool Think Tank 09 is a social gathering of coders, artists and enthusiasts, hosted by OMA International. The aim is to discuss and kick-start development of a new open-source platform for live-performance drawing and animation, based on the experiences out of the Tagtool project.
The three days from April 24th to 26th will comprise presentations, discussions, performances and a Tagtool Next Generation workshop (age 12-18).
Also there will be an Open Mic session where people can talk about their use of the Tagtool or related projects in short, informal presentations.
In the evenings, performances by proficient Tagtool artists and musicians will showcase the artistic use of the technology. There will be a performance of the latest and greatest incarnation of Hilti’s Odyssey of Oddities featuring Philip Zoubek, Christian Reiner, Maki & iink, plus special guests Matl Koch, Karl Ritter, Keramik and Tohyto.
Attendance is free, and free dormitory accommodation can be arranged by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
