In September FAT participated at “Meeting Hub“, a hacker’s festival arranged by Platform4. Platform4 is a non-profit art and technology organisation which runs a gigantic open-space in Aalborg, Denmark. Defnetly check it out when visiting Denmark!
The following projects were created with the help of Platform 4:
Geraldine Juárez tinkered a little mobile device – the FAT CRIER – to amplify information gathered from Twitter trough a megaphone so it can be brought it to the streets. The original FAT CRIER is a commissioned piece created for PLATFORM4 and will be installed on their warehouse for everyone to use. A second workshop is coming-up on the 22nd of October!!

F.A.T. members, collaborators and friends will be all up in wine country this week. Street artist Mark Jenkins is guest curating an interactive design festival, Les Grandes Traversees, taking place this week and next in three cities on the west coast of France. The festival highlights work from designers, street artists and new media artists that directly interacts with the city. Chris Sugrue and I will be premiering the new Graffiti Analysis 3.0 (coming soon to a browser near you) and collaborating with DJ Rupture on GA3.0’s new audio input functionality. I will also be showing a new 3D printed sculpture of a tag by L’Atlas and Chris will be showing Delicate Boundaries. Theo Watson will be showing a new project, as well as working with Chris and me on merging Laser Tag into Graffiti Analysis, creating the ultimate software for graffiti writers (more on that soon). Theo, Chris and I will also demo the EyeWriter. Other friends of F.A.T. in attendance include Mark Jenkins (who will be showing new work), Improv Everywhere, Paul Notzold (who will be premiering a new project) and Benjamin Gaulon (who will be blasting TEMPT1 tags in paint balls). See below for a complete list of artists.
