Demoscene @ Bridges Linz 2019
Tue. 2019-07-16 - Sat. 2017-07-20

Demoscene - Digital Culture in Real-Time - screening curated by Stefan Pautze (Felidae/Reflex) from Digitale Kultur e.V.
Fri. 2019-07-19, 3:30 PM, Ars Electronica Center, Level -1, Lecture Room

The demoscene represents one of the most colourful facets of digital culture. Musicians, graphic artists and coders (programmers) form groups and work on a demo, a computer program intended to show their personal skills and abilities. Thanks to competition between various groups, demos have been subject to a high degree of evolutionary pressure so-to-speak in terms of technology and style. This includes in particular the underlying algorithms and mathematics. The incentive behind these efforts is to amaze others, to overcome apparently impossible technical challenges and to exhaust the limits of the hardware. While films as a rule can only play back their images or frames, demos generate these images for the exact moment – in real-time.

Cyclotomic Aperiodic Substitution Tilings @ MDPI Symmetry
Scientific paper

Aperiodic tilings please and dazzle the eye of the beholder. The viewer will divine the underlying order but might not be able to get a final grip on it. The tilings psychedelic appearance draw designers’ and artists’ attention. As it turned out the mathematics behind are the real attraction.
