Patchers of the world. It is official: NODE15 Forum for Digital Arts will take place in Frankfurt from from April 27th till May 3rd 2015.
We will open the doors to enlighten your patcher soul within a week full of workshops, profound face-to-face exchange in the open lab, critical debates and lots of good moments to share.
With the leitmotif “Wrapped in Code – The Future of the Informed Body” we will focus our program on the changing relationship between the human body and technology. This change is not only powered by the boost of mainstream access to highlevel technologies such as virtual reality devices, 3d sensors and prosthetic devices etc. No - the change is mainly driven through your creative developments, applications and projects. Its you who push the boundaries of whats possible, who make fictions becomes reality and who create new visions and fictions for the future. In other words: You are responsible for what is happening with our body in the future.
Right now, we are working hard on curating an exhibition, lectures and workshops. But want to hear about your needs: what would you like to see and whom would you like to talk to during NODE15? Use the OPEN CALL to suggest projects or your own work!
We would be glad if you support the exhibition & lecture program by contributing to our first crowdfunding campain. The more contributers the better the chance for additional support by the Kulturmut Project by the Aventis Foundation.
support us here:
We are happy to announce our great new locations: Mousonturm and Naxoshalle. With the Künstlerhaus Mousonturm we found a very good partner for the performances, concerts and parts of the exhibition. Also it is a good location for the exchange with the local public.
Thank you for your ongoing support, this time and for the last three editions!
Stay tuned for tickets!
See you in Frankfurt soon!!

STATE Experience Science Festival is a celebration of scientific ideas and creativity across disciplines. It brings together visionary people from different backgrounds for the purpose of exploration, collaboration and debate. On an annually changing topic, it creates a meeting ground for science, art and the public. The main theme of STATE 2014 is "Time".
What exactly constitutes time?
What, if anything, does time even measure?
Discover the topic of time with us anew and experience science.

How do we develop a meaning of algorithms? How do we develop a meaning of movement?
What does it mean when they collide?
We want to explore, discuss and share different approaches to weave digital
visualizations into dance in an unpretentious way. In this 3 days workshop we will show several
ways of interaction between the moving object and the digital media.
We want to create a laboratory atmosphere in which performers as well as coders can
find a common ground to work together and benefit from each others insight and
This workshop is about the intersection of code and choreography. It will cover principles
about how visualization, motion analysis and choreography can come together in a
We will explore different computer vision motion tracking technics using 2D and 3D
cameras, talk about the aspects to consider in the building of an interactive environment,
and also show other less common examples of motion and position capture processes.
In this point we will explain and work on different motion visualization technics and its
representation on the space, and also we would like to show some uses of motion data
beyond the most common ways (movement and sound, reactive light installations, motion
visualization using physical objects...).
The core part of the workshop, in which we will combine motion analysis, its visualization
on the space and some choreographic concepts, and also we would like to discuss about
how digital media and performative arts are related in the post digital era, in order to
explore with the participants new ways to collide both disciplines.
Depending on the participant´s level (or interest) we will go deeply into the several points.
An interest into performance, movement, choreographic decisions and playful investigations.
Basic programming skills in VVVV, processing, or openframeworks, but we prefer VVVV
Computer with the software of your choice installed.
Web cameras, kinect, are welcome and we will work mainly with these devices (drivers
installed is a plus).
Leap motion, Oculus rift, arduino, motors, DMX, lights, game pads, and MIDI controllers,
are welcome but we assume that you know how to use it.

You, me and my computer
A Talk with Lauren McCarthy, artist and programmer
Can we use technology to help us be more human? To smile more, to touch and to listen to each other? What if a computer could make decisions about our social relationships better than we could ourselves? Would our interactions be improved by algorithmically determining what to do and say? What happens if we crowdsource our dating lives and actually find love? In this talk Lauren McCarthy attempts to understand these questions through an artistic practice involving hacking, design, and self-experimentation.
Lauren McCarthy is an artist and programmer based in Brooklyn, NY. She is full-time faculty at NYU ITP, a Berkman Center affilliate, and recently a resident at CMU STUDIO for Creative Inquiry and Eyebeam. Her work explores the structures and systems of social interactions, identity, and self-representation, and the potential for technology to mediate, manipulate, and evolve these interactions. She is fascinated by the slightly uncomfortable moments when patterns are shifted, expectations are broken, and participants become aware of the system. Her artwork has been shown in a variety of contexts, including the Conflux Festival, SIGGRAPH, LACMA, the Japan Media Arts Festival, Share Festival, File Festival, the WIRED Store, and probably to you without you knowing it at some point while interacting with her.

It's been a little while since last DirectX11 update, so since beta33.1 is out let's sync the boys and have a one day release.
Most work on last build has been to fix bugs, but of course there are some new nodes/options/examples.
So here is the (non) exhaustive changelog:
Side note 1:
Please submit bugs here, this is much easier for me to track (it's very easy for your bug to be lost in forum within 2 days):
Side note 2:
If a few kind users would like to give me a hand for help patches/girlpower examples please manifest yourselves ;)
Download from directx11-nodes-alpha and enjoy
here is the third release in the 33-series just exactly a month after the last one. Mostly bugfixes and specifically quite a performance-boost. So updating is highly recommended.
For more details about the 33-series see the changelog and the previous announcements:
And in case you missed it, go checkout http://node15.vvvv.org
this is the addonpack for beta33.3. mostly bugfixes as far as i can see. until people add their stuff the changelog you can have a look at the recent pullrequests against the repo: https://github.com/vvvv/vvvv-sdk/pulls?q=is%3Apr+is%3Aclosed
thanks everyone for your fixes.
