FIBER has announced its next event in collaboration with De Brakke Grond. The highly anticipated Coded Matter(s) #9: High Fidelity will take place on 18 June at the exquisite Brakke Grond cultural centre. This specially curated programme consists of an intensive evening of presentations and discussions as well as a two-day workshop, all led by forerunners in the fields of art and advanced computer vision research.
The ninth edition of FIBER’s popular Coded Matter(s) series presents the theme ‘High Fidelity,’ referring to how new resolutions in visualisation technology define human and computer perception, and how artists modify and uncover industry standards.
Hacked video projectors, calibrated lasers and alternative screen resolutions are a few examples of how artists merge code, form, media and matter. Presented as artistic research or immersive light scenographies, these practices manipulate our notion of space and calibrate human perception. Their aesthetic research crosses and questions the boundaries of the image which have been defined by industry standards.
What impact does their work have on our contemporary visual culture? Coded Matter(s) #9: High Fidelity explores how technology programmes human perception, but also the ways artists effectively hack and uncover industrial standards and protocols. What is the critical potential of these artistic and scientific practices?
Coded Matter(s) #9: High Fidelity will seek answers to these questions during an immersive evening programme at De Brakke Grond, and an led by a variety of international researchers in the field. Expect a comprehensive series of advanced keynote presentations, talks and discussions, alongside a two-day workshop.

WORKSHOP – 2 DAYS
‘Ways of Seeing (with Computers)’
Alongside his presentation, Elliot Woods will lead a two-day workshop aptly titled ‘Ways of Seeing (with Computers)’. Designed for creative coders, digital designers, VJs and spatial designers, this advanced workshop will introduce Rulr&mdashart studio Kimchi and Chips’ new application for calibrating artistic devices with the physical world. Users of this innovative ‘toolkit’ can create patches of nodes to calibrate cameras, projectors, tracking systems and other devices, or they can develop their own nodes using openFrameworks, vvvv, and OpenCV. More info.
More details will be announced soon via http://www.codedmatters.nl/event/high-fidelity and social media.
Coded Matter(s) is supported by the Creative Industries Fund NL
