NODE is a festival for digital art and culture. The forum originated from the community around the multipurpose toolkit vvvv. It is a week-long rush of A/V performances and exhibitions by international artists from the digital and analog media scene. NODE13 will be packed with practical vvvv workshops where you will learn how to build things. You will have many opportunities to get to know each other and talk about the tools we use in our daily creative coding routine. NODE13 comes with the keynote ‘The Rules’. Together with artists, scientists and technologists, the exhibition and symposium will explore the connection between working with the ‘rules’ of the computer and the transformative processes in our society.
