We are very happy to announce that the .x-med-a. publication is now online, free for download, sharing, printing, but most of all, for your browsing, reading and viewing pleasure. [viewing tip: ‘facing pages’ or ‘book view’ in your pdf viewer].
In its pages you can find more than 40 contributions from a motley crew of artists, designers and engineers, including Matthew Fuller, Joey Berzowska, Casey Reas, Akihiro Kubota along with many other clever and lovely people. The articles, interviews, poems and patches reflect upon education and play, poetics and aesthetics, technology and collaboration, politics and economics of experimental media arts, steeped in a sea of photographs, diagrams, screenshots and illustrations. For those of you who favor paper over pixels, there is a printed edition (with fewer articles) available. Contact us at info [at] xmedk [dot] be for details.
The review originated from a series of technically and artistically diverse workshops, organised by four independent technological arts initiatives in Brussels: FoAM, nadine, okno and iMAL. The workshops responded to the needfor a place where continuous learning and dialogue between peers is encouraged, with the objective of sharing of experience, skills and knowledge among diverse groups interested in emerging ideas, media and technologies.
