TEXTMODE ART / PLATINE 2015 (Cologne)

5. PLATINE Festival 2015
03. – 06. August 2015
TEXTMODE ART

Textmode-graphics are created using the keyboard and the respective charsets on different computers such as the C64, Amiga and IBM PC. Written logos or characters are created using (back)-slashes, hyphen, underlines, blockshapes and other similar symbols found in the charsets. Together with international artists and groups we have compiled a variety of textmode-graphics from different areas of style. Beginning with the oldest technologies such as Teletext, C64 Petscii, Amiga Ascii, PC Ansi, evolving to customized charsets and introducing other media formats. The artworks will be displayed on digital prints and monitors to showcase their original shapes and forms. A journey through textmode art history, that leads to appearances in print publications, animated visuals, clothing and paintings.
