Drinks, snacks and three talks, including myself re-presenting Elmyra (from the @apertus project) which *cough* I will by then have ported and released for blender 2.80 finally. (*^.^*)

Welcome to, an instance for discussions around cultural freedom, experimental, new media art, net and computational culture, and things like that.
