Please join us for a few open presentations and a workshop with Timothy Place. He is an entrepreneur, open source software/hardware advocate, and one of the leading programmers in software tools to further interactive computer art. If you are interested in open source communities, computation in the arts, and future directions in arts technology and how that connects with industry, these will be valuable interactions.

CCT – Cultural Computing Presentation (open to everyone)

“Jamoma: a Diverse Ecosystem in which Software Grows Organically”
Jamoma is a post-disciplinary platform for real-time computation with an emphasis on artistic and creative outcomes. It is used throughout the world in academic settings, industry research, and by independent artists and production companies. From a anthropological perspective, the success of Jamoma as an open source project represents an unusual departure from the status quo. The passionate users and developers of the Jamoma team are typically artists first and researchers or developers second. While producing contributions to the research in the field, the expressive potentials of the Jamoma platform are truly revealed in the artistic output of its contributors.
Why has Jamoma been a success? How has it gotten here? Where is it going?
