Minipimer’s filescape was created with minipimer.tv and is an installation in the exhibition SummerLAB-showcase in Laboral (Gijón) and emerges as SummerLAB 2010 memory.The installation takes the form of an infographic device that crosses and mixes the concepts of time, collage, fragmentation and subjective mapping with the construction of a narrative.img_5262 The installation arises from a work of organization and classification of  the database of videos of the live streaming of SummerLAB 2010 and consists of different analogic devices (photos, tag cloud and video) which show the multiplicity of possible arrangements that can be performed with a set of files and how such process represents just one of the possible ways to generate new narratives from a database.

The result is the construction of a map that, through the use of various forms of data visualization, shows the impossibility of generating an objective reading device within a database.img_5306 Installation

Mi primer patch

Mi primer patch

36068_123700274349762_6893050_n Mi primer patch was created with minipimer.tv. It is a mural cartography produced in the framework of Hangar Taller Obert 2010. The map brings together the elements that constitute the practice of the collective by using the structure of Pure Data programming environment.

The development of the work arises from the reflectionabout the displacement of the notion of free software and open source to artistic production. Believing that in art “open the code” means to visualize the process means, mi primer patch is a artisanal cartography that speaks the language of computing and emphasizes the connection as a hub for the operation of any system.miprimerpatch_assembly
