Open Source @ Techvill

Brixton Village / Granville Arcade, Coldharbour Lane, London – 24th April 2010

On Saturday 24th April TINT was pleased to presenting a selection of artists in a one day event at Brixton Village Market. The event is organised by Spacemakers also featured other arts groups exploring media arts, computational arts, coding and hacking. The Spacemakers Agency is about rethinking the spaces in which we spend our time, They have taken over 20 empty shops in a 1930’s arcade market in Brixton and created a rolling festival of pop-up performances and exhibitions, new shops, cafes and weekend events:

‘It’s all about interaction this week at Granville Arcade. Whether fashioning jewelery from old circuit boards, doing the robot dance with the kids, or making music with a Wii remote. We will be taking control of the future on all fronts and getting to grips with open source and Linux. There’ll be techtastic treats from visual programming for beginners, MASH live interactive digital screen, TINT media arts, computer recycling and all day drop-in IT support.’

Throughout the day artists displayed small projects, which where developed during the day through an engagement with the public, exploring the components/methods that make up the artwork. This included the following artist:
