Bandrui in Calafou

I am living in Calafou since this September.Before, I was here a lot of times to visit friends, participate in events, festivals, residences in Pechblenda Lab etc, but I decided that Calafou will be my base for at least one year after a nomadic-residence time changing my base any 4 months more or less :) I am starting a new stage!!!

So, some rehabilitation tasks are now in my calendary.I am preparing a workspace for me and my technical material called Bandrui :) with a lot of tentacles and collaborations with hacklab, hardlab Pechblenda, biolab and more and more.

This photo (bondage suspension) was made two days before DesvariArt event in Calafou.It was a magic point because Paola was the people who propose the witch position and the place to take this photo specifically.Bandrui was inaugurated before finishing rehabilitation in a so beautiful way :)

Webapps coding

I was working a lot last months coding webapps for another projects, specifically UI/UX design and front-end development for Looking4Language iniciative, or the whole technical arquitecture (front-end and back-end) in appodera’t iniciative from Matriu.Since adtlantida.tv development, I have received these assignments because of my technical knowledge in webapps, and in the second case because of my transfeminist approach in technology, too.

So, this make me think about my real preference and advice for webapps instead of native apps in almost any case and about my growing html5, javascript and css3 knowledge.

Some webdoc collaborations and (maybe) some game collaboration searching funding have appeared on the horizon…so, definetely, this is one of my investigacion framework really alive and powerful!!

I will release some relevant code (as we did with adtlantida) step by step, specially from sexist violence 2.0 appodera’t. Cyborg witcheeeeeees!!!

17 Festival Zemos98 Hackcamp

I was invited to participate in 17 Zemos 98 Festival Hackcamp with Doc Next Media Collection and European Cultural Foundation support this year, too. I was collaborating in Open Video Archive for the Commons node coordinated by María Yáñez.We elaborated some prototypes together as a good practices guide for an open video archive,a videoposter design or a timeline with customized player (live subtitles edition and acceleration speed) and semantic search and visualization.

We are developing more this last prototype and briefly we will publish this documentation :)
The festival was so great, a really beauty and productive good-bye for a referencial festival in cultural commons world :-*

Collaboration In CulturaLab (Cultural Studies Master)

I was collaborating this February in Cultura Lab, a new experimental pedagogy lab in Cultural Studies Master (USC) context.
