an Strahlen FAQ

this is the FAQ for the "an Strahlen" Workshop/Event at NODE Festival 2013.

What does "an Strahlen" mean?

  • Rough translation: Close to rays (of light).

When/Where?

  • The Kick-off event curated by Tommy/Flo will be Monday, 11th Feb 18:00 - 19:00. During NODE, there will be at least two more screenings anyone can take part in, each 18:00 - 19:00 in front of the Frankfurter Kunstverein. The Dates/participants will be published here and on the NODE website.

Are there restricitons in terms of media?

  • No. Animations, Narratives, Generative... live patches or pre-recorded footage, all welcome.

I heard rumours about the movies/patches are groing to be on display somewhere in Frankfurt after the NODE festival?

  • Shhh.

I want to use my own laptop

  • Fine!

I want to bring the movie file on a USB-Stick, which Codec...

  • Everything a vanilla install of VLC can play is fine.

Do i have to bring/build my own screen?

  • We´ll have a more "traditional" screen (rectangle) ready, but you will have to hold it.

What kind of screen...?

  • A car. A Stick. A pillow. A dedocahedron. A group of people dressed in white. ....

5 Minutes?

  • Yeah. Short and sweet. Setup doesn´t count.

Will there be speakers?

  • Yes.

Can i just show up and present something?

  • Please let us know beforehand, we need to plan a schedule.

What Materials will be available?

  • We´ll update this list soon.

Do you have a big workshop where i can build my awesome screen?

  • No. There are hacking spaces at NODE, though.

Can i prepare/test/etc my projection beforehand?

  • You can test the playback of your patch/movie on our laptop for tech issues, and we can arrange a test run before the screening, but the test run will take place in front of the Kunstverein (so there will be people watching).

Please feel free to add your questions!

cznickesz: @joreg: I should stop asking my questions so cryptic ;-) So right away: is final Beta39 hours, days or weeks away?

joreg: @cznickesz: the idea of an RC is exactly to make sure your projects will work with it. your last chance to report problems with b39.

cznickesz: So how "RC" is the "RC3"? I have to update an old project soon and I´m wondering if I should wait and directly update to Beta39
