FIBER presents Coded Matter(s); a new series of events exploring the explosion of digital processes taking place in hybrid art, design and music and the ripples this causes.
During these events artists, designers, musicians and other creatives will demonstrate the limitless possibilities offered by digital systems and creative coding platforms for the creation of visual art, generative design, interactive installations, multi-sensory performances and enchanting scenography.
On Sunday June 1, FIBER and Flemish Arts Centre de Brakke Grond will present the seventh edition of Coded Matter(s), titled Extended Senses. Intelligent technology grows around us and towards us as an extension of the body, both visible and invisible. The computer has migrated from lap to pocket. A wave of networked watches, glasses and implants is launched at technology trade shows and through sensors we are able to explore our environment in new ways. What are the possibilities of these new developments? And what are the dangers?
Coded Matter(s) will also function as a platform for bringing together frontrunners within the many creative disciplines. Furthermore, FIBER aims to open up these developments and make them accessible to a broad audience, giving them a unique opportunity to experience the many possibilities and tools. Within this series groundbreaking interactive installations, process based design, audiovisual dance and music performances, Do-It-Yourself (DIY) platforms, data art and digital scenography will be addressed.
