For a little over a year now, I’ve been involved as an organizer in the e-MobiLArt project. It is a project between University of Athens, University of Lapland and University of Applied Arts in Vienna tailored around the process of collaboratively creating interactive installation artworks. More information can be found from the project website: http://www.media.uoa.gr/~charitos/emobilart/ Now the project is nearing it’s end and the e-MobiLArt group exhibition is on display in Warehouse B1 in Thessaloniki, Greece.
I know that this is a bit late since the opening was last week, but I’ve been really busy since it’s my last week in Montreal and didn’t have time to post this earlier. Unfortunately, I can’t make it to Greece for the exhibition, but I’m hoping to catch in Katowice, Poland this fall. Click here for exhibition details.
Damn, how come I haven’t seen this earlier. Parra’s band Le Le with the track Breakfast. I’ve always thought that Parra is doing the best illustrations and typography on this side of the galaxy and now it’s in motion!

If you are in Rovaniemi from 2nd to 28th of June go check out the exhibition of two of my very good friends.
Jeanne Jo and Rachelle Beaudoin are two talented individuals who I met at RISD last summer. Modded/Modattu will have wearables, hacked headphones and other cool shitten. (shitten™ by Steven)
In other news, things are kind of hectic and I´m running out of energy. I´m leaving to Helsinki on Thursday and on Monday I will be on my way to the e-MobiLArt workshop in Athens, Greece. I’m really glad I have the opportunity to travel and be part of these great projects, but I could really use just a few moments when I don’t have some deadlines waiting around the corner. My schoolwork is lagging miles behind, countless of other projects would need a lot of attention and I´m stressing a little about work. I´ll manage, just bear with me if I seem like my head is not attached to my body sometimes.
What else… I will be moving to Montreal for a year next September. So holla at me, if you are from there and interested in working with me (DJing, VJing, design, art, anything…) And also contact me if you know of a good and cheap place to live for me and my girlfriend, preferably in Mile End.
I wrote a tutorial a while ago for building a cocoa app that will enable you to control Quartz Composer with Phidgets sensors. Now there’s a LOT easier way to achieve this. Just use the new QC patches from fdiv.net.
