The Volt 2010 festival report

The Volt crew came back with yet another festival at the concert hall in Uppsala. I recognized a lot of faces from last year. It feels like Volt only invites their friends to perform, but with friends like these, who could blame them?

We choose to write this as an open letter instead of as a regular e-mail. We do it to show a really bad example of an arrangement. We do it in hope that this was a one time coincidence. And if not, that change will be made in the future.

I was invited to the Pixelache festival to hang out and network. For once I didn’t have to perform or give a speech, so I could fully indulge in all the activities that time and energy permitted during my three day long visit. That included a day long Bar Camp with a lot of talk about open source software, architectural video mapping, an Arduino workshop and some great VJ performances.

When Ilan Katin told me about the Datastorm party that was going on in Gothenburg parallel to Pixelvärk I got really excited. Datastorm is a party dedicated to the Commodore 64 and Amiga demo scenes. When we were done with the last Pixelvärk event and all the equipment was packed up, Ilan and I took a cab to an industrial area on Lindholmen in the outskirts of Gothenburg where the party was located.

I just got back from Siggraph Asia in Yokohama, Japan. Siggraph is an expo for the world’s leading experts on computer graphics and interactive techniques. I was helping Mobile Life giving a demo of the Instant Broadcasting System that they were showcasing in the Emerging Technologies section. I didn’t really have much free time to see the rest of Siggraph but visited the art exhibition and I met a few fellow VJs.
