Besides the opportunity to promote the project and share my current work, this gathering is an opportunity to actively collaborate with artists and to observe first hand their creative processes and relationship with technology. This environment is also an excellent opportunity to perform tests and drive forward the code's development to provide useful functionality faster, taking it one step closer to being usable in real projects.
Take a look at the residency's wiki page to know about all the project being developed here.
And if you are in the neighbourhood, you are welcome to join us.
At the end of August I participated in this year's Artropocode meeting, a gathering of digital artists that alternates every year between Galicia and Portugal. Although usually a weekend long meeting, this year the event took on the form of a ten day residency at the Baleiro lab, right in the middle of the Santiago de Compostela University campus.
The longer format of the event allowed me the time to better observe the collaborative workflow between the participants and to set up a few interviews with them, learning about their creative relationship with technology and their needs regarding the tools they use.
Artropocode2013 was a fantastic experience, I hope to meet everyone again in Portugal next year and show them what I'm building from their insights.
