News : it's been a long time

And I can partly blame microblogging for my lack of updates here.

So what the hell have I been up to since.. April (that seems to be the date of my latest proper update) ?!

Well working at iMAL.. my 6 months trial period is over now, so I'm now a permanent employee ;)

In June we had a big exhibition, which needed preparation, a whole website, and a lot of maintenance (as it was 8bit/chiptune oriented).

I then had to focus on the new iMAL website. The previous one was done in a semi-hurry during the preparations of the new venue opening, in 2007, and that temporary website stayed there for almost 3 years ;)
It's now fixed, thanks to Drupal :D http://www.imal.org/

Then we had Media Façades, a european festival around urban screens. We tried to involve the Dexia Tower, but they turned us down.. so we eventually made our own LED-powered façade, controllable from Processing!

So of course I had to code some music visualiser ;) (vids soon, I hope)

To close the festival, we had, among other things, a workshop with Julian Oliver and his Artvertiser project. I had to take part in it ;)

We were really short on time, the rush felt really.. artschool-like ;) I ended up doing something somewhat in relation with our Face project with Lionel.
By the way, we finally received the money of the government grant.. to work on that Face project. We haven't had time yet to work on it, so it's going to be done mostly in 2011 I suppose.

Félix Luque's latest work (currently exhibited at iMAL) feels somewhat close to what we're going to work on. It's both a sign that we're in right direction.. and a necessity to differentiate our project from his ;)

Annnnnnnnnd... last but not least :
The Gate (the First Life / Second Life installation) is invited to the Shanghai Biennale.. and so are we. Yes. I'm leaving on Thrusday, back 10 days later.
And a bit stressed about it, as I'm not used to travel that far, that long, or even to take part in a slightly "big" art event :| (impostor syndrome anyone? yes!)
