Are certain kind of aesthetics connected to certain kinds of political issues!? Does it always have to be like that? What if you altered the aestethics connected to the issue? Could you reach new audiences with altered visual styles?
Come and create your own political graphics in 8-bit aesthetics! Learn how to perform visuals using 8-bit pixel graphics and/or text characters (letters, numbers and other symbols). No previous experience is needed.
Bring your own media to convert, it can be stills, interviews, video material and more! Create a theme that connects visual form with your political issue of choice.
Raquel Meyers and RåFILM is holding this unique workshop in Malmö 28-30 of april!
This workshop will cover for example Ascii, Ansi, PETSCII and Teletext (“Text-TV”). The purpose of the workshop is to find new ways of expression in these unique media environments. Although often misunderstood as limiting and difficult, these tools are often quite helpful to develop new procedures, ideas and motivations. New ideas don’t require new technologies. Sometimes it’s even easier to be progressive with old tools.
The workshop will be held by Raquel Meyers who works with low-res graphics and photography for performance, web, video and installations. Since 2004 she has performed at VJ-festivals like Mapping and Cimatics, at 8bit events like Tokyo Blip Festival and the Playlist exhibition, aswell at Transmediale, LABoral and LEV Festival. She currently lives and works in Sweden.

Nu är det dags för det så många har frågat efter!
För ganska exakt ett år sedan var vi mer än 100 pers som under den kallaste helgen i mannaminnen spenderade 48h i en hangar i Västra Hamnen för att starta Malmös finaste Maker-space. Nu ett år senare har Fabriken levererat otaliga timmar av hackande och skapande.
Nu är det dags igen.
23-25 Mars från kl 17.00 fredag till 17.00 söndag. På lördagskvällen blir det även musik o häng på STPLN.
Mer info finns på Stapelbäddsparkens sidor
P.S. Av någon anledning har vi missat att nämna det här tidigare. Vi ber om ursäkt om du på grund av detta inte kan komma.
Another Lördagsforsk event will be held this Saturday, Feburary 25.
Theme: GSM and osmocom-bb
Place: Norra Grängesbergsgatan 26, at high noon – 12:00
Entrance fee: Free!
A presentation and workshop about the Open Source GSM baseband software osmocom-bb. With osmocom-bb you can do anything a regular GSM phone can do. The difference is that osmocom-bb is Open Source all the way into the airwaves. Using only a Motorola mobile phone, you can learn everything about GSM.

We have been silent for a while; the winter is quite cold here. But, hey, let’s brag instead! This week’s Tuesday meeting saw diverse activity:
- Olleolleolle and Jimmy built two projects: a photo lightbox and a Hexayurt for Barbie.
- stg and Terninator opened up some old remote controls, and begun playing music with the trackball in there
- an osmocom link to be able to fill old phones with interesting firmware was built by phrst and it begun working at the “hello firmware world” level. jonas assisted with cross-compiling and general trouble-shooting.
When we were done with the photo box and the scale model, we had to store them somewhere. The photo box sits in the ceiling, on top of some well-insulated pipes. The model was dismantled, to be re-built and perhaps even painted, at a later date. Needing a Barbie to stand next to it.
In the near future, we will host a Saturday Forsk – yes, the plan is really to host one once a month. A Saturday Forsk is a prolonged slack event with a theme. The upcoming theme is “Luften är fri”. (Thanks for the name, we will only borrow it, Sparvnästet!)
