Call: Participate at Unleashed [uk London]

event-image-300×290.jpg Apiary Studios would like to invite artists, researchers, geeks, and such like to take part in “Unleashed”, a weekend of collaborative co-exploration of long known or newly to be discovered aspects of media art.

We are especially interested in projects that either conceive new tools for making art or make use of existing open source/open technology solutions Continue reading
