This panel advocates for a and the need to empower its , which work with the to do so. We, as artists who run a network of autonomous servers, have acknowledged a desire by creatives and activists to make and publish their work on our platforms, which are aligned with our identity politics, collaborative ethics and concerns. However, our communities lack the structural resources to enable feminist hosting to become sustainable in the longer term. Our invited speakers will elaborate on the urgency of in relation to the wider context of digital rights, and will address the challenges their mission entails in relation to internal and external agency.

IKLECTIK presents,
w/ mathr [Claude Heiland-Allen + Laura Netz] Saturday 15 January 2022 | 12pm – 5pm
Tickets: £25 General Admission (max 10 people)


Workshop by mathr on live-coding audio in the C programming language using Clive.

Clive is a C audio live-coding skeleton. It allows you to hot-swap digital signal processing callbacks, providing automatic C code recompilation, object code reloading, and state preservation. This enables you to perform live: when you hit "Save" in the text editor, the sound changes according to changes made in the code.

The workshop will get Clive running on your system, and cover the basics of Linux system administration and Git (a version control system) via the command-line interface. Then it will move on to digital signal processing, and various sound synthesis and modification techniques.

To participate, you need to bring headphones and your own laptop running a GNU/Linux OS. Note that Clive does not work on Windows or macOS. If you have a 64bit Intel/AMD-compatible CPU (x86_64 or amd64; not i686; not arm; not aarch), and your system allows to boot from a USB stick, it is possible to run a custom Linux "live" operating system, without modifying your PC.

climate, webdev, rant, looking for something else 

I hate my web developer job. No time for unit testing, no time for documentation, no time for creativity or nice algorithms.
Just use whatever trendy JS {front,back}end framework, ship high bandwidth, heavy, soulless sites in no time.
The mere consciousness of it from my colleagues are jokes between two crypto bs talks. The climate catastrophes ahead are literally a joke to them.
I hate that I contribute to this and I want out.

Does anyone here have experience going from this kind of job to a more engineering-focused, ethical one? Tips? Interesting reads? I'd love to hear about it!

Boosts are appreciated!

Is losing your data good for you? Tune in on the 18th of December (18:00h - 19:00h CEST) to find out!

In 2015, researcher and media artist Dave Young (@dv) wrote an essay entitled "Know Your Filesystem (And How It Affects You)". He argued that "the ‘traditional’ filesystem interface, familiar to us as a visually traversable hierarchical structure of files and folders, is replaced by an app-centric interface."

Half a decade later the issue has become urgent again and it is time for a retrospective evaluation. In the fourth and last episode of The User Condition, PDF-hoarders Dave Young and Silvio Lorusso will look back at this interface parable and try to understand where are we now. Did app-centricity actually become hegemonic? What did we lose in the meantime? What have we gained? How helpful is the "helpful framework" of smart interfaces? How purist should you be when it comes to file management?

owes these artists and the artworld in general an apology.

"Sound Artists Decline German Art Award: ‘Pitting Quality Against Diversity Is Pernicious’"

'“A ZKM representative mentioned in his rehearsed commentary that this year was the award’s most diverse year with applicants from many countries and a number of women and people of color. As we waited on Zoom for our cue to begin our portion of the ceremony he mentioned they ultimately had to choose between ‘quality and diversity,'” Obadike wrote, describing the statement from ZKM as an “old false binary.”'

Sound artists Mendi and Keith Obadike - the pair of artists who declined to participate following that comment - are black and do works based on race and the legacy of racism. Reducing their work to tokenism is unacceptable. ZKM need to apologise and take meaningful steps to show they won't repeat this. I would suggest they diversify both their staff and their collections as two of those steps.
