Hi guys! Just to let you know, this year we’re facing an extremely hot summer here in Italy (50 degrees in some cities!), so as you would image sitting all day in front of a screen is getting quite challenging.. nonetheless, I’m still too excited about learning Houdini to stop my researches!

The idea becomes a machine that makes the art

« In conceptual art the idea or the concept is the most important aspect of the work.

Nel weekend appena trascorso si è conclusa la prima edizione di Artigitale, il primo festival dedicato all’artigianato digitale nella nostra penisola. Ovviamente, intrigato dall’intreccio digitale/reale e spinto anche dal fatto che sto muovendo i primi passi in questo campo (vedi: laser-cutting-fablabs-and-a-mooviamo-upgrade ), non potevo assolutamente perderlo: così ho radunato la ciurma e ci siamo infilati in questa Continue reading Artigitale 2016 – Webstar e artigianato digitale
