Workshop and Screening: floppy disk filmmaking – workshop and screening installations by Florian Cramer
Saturday, November 2
1 pm – 5 pm
Workshop (limited to 6 participants): With its tiny capacity, slow speed and glitchiness, the 3.5″ floppy disk is a difficult medium for moving images. However, its constraints can be embraced as a creative challenge, and as a learning tool for understanding data compression and the messy analog hardware underlying digital technology. In this workshop, participants will learn how to make their own moving images on floppy disks using Open Source software. No previous technical knowledge is required. Participation is limited to 6 people. Please bring your own laptop, if you have one.
Installation (open to general public): Parallel to the workshop, visual poetry Super 8 film loops (based on texts by Ernst Jandl and Moor Mother/Camae Ayewa) and select floppy disk films will be screened.
