9th-11th April 2014 / 3rd International Video Games Festival in Berlin
A MAZE. / Berlin
Lecture “Keyboardslöjd. The joy of text-mode”
I will talk about my work with text-based graphics and animation. I types graphics with a keyboard as a form of brutalist craft, often using old machines like Commodore 64. I will show how I went from photography to text-based imagery, via 8-bit VJing.
