Ars Electronica Festival The ARS ELECTRONICA FESTIVAL premiered on September 18, 1979.

Net Art Generations 19 November 2013: I don't remember when I made these notes, must be the end of 2007 Net art can be divided into more than just two generations like old and new or 1.0 and 2.0, or internet and post internet.

Multi-touch applications with Flash « Digital Music Volvelles I’ve written in a previous post that there is the idea of a standardised technique to connect multi-touch hardware to multi-touch software via TUIO. As we want to concentrate on Flash as visualisation and interaction layer for our digital volvelles I will present a Flash AS3 API for multi-touch with TUIO in this and further posts. The touchlib project from the NUI Group is a collection of software tools for the realisation of a multi-touch table. It provides tools like digital image processing for the tracking of fingers on a multi-touch screen, a TUIO server and so on. It additionally provides a Flash AS3 library in order to process TUIO messages inside of Flash and to provide standard interface elements e.g. sliders. All Flash applications that are being built with touchlib’s AS3 library can not only be used with a TUIO enabled multi-touch device but also with a mouse.

Réseau des villes creatives A propos de la ville créative: Ever since the inception of Ars Electronica and the Cloud of Sound in 1979, Linz – Europe’s 2009 Capital of Culture – has been making impressive strides as a trailblazer and international hotbed of media arts and digital competence. The annual Ars Electronica Festival and Prix Ars Electronica showcase and honour excellence and deliver essential impetus to media culture worldwide; while the Ars Electronica Centre and Futurelab are driving forces for innovation both in research and development as well as in education throughout the region. Today, the city is concentrating on transforming a former industrial site located in the heart of the inner city into a centre of the creative economy: the Linz’s Tabakfabrik campus, with Creative Region, Linz and Upper Austria’s creative industries development company, at its core. Another priority on the city’s agenda is to become Europe’s first Open Commons region.
