Creative Kernels aims to provide information about and discuss recent software developments (and work in progress) in the field of the arts.
Art productions, performances, creative events and cultural content often place demands on functionality that require specific software and hardware which are not available in mainstream packages. In the workshop Creative Kernels special emphasis will be placed on:
The exchange of research and development in the field of creative software engineering. The possibilities and consequences of 'open source' in the field of creative software development from the perspective of both developers and artists.
Artists who consider the programme code as a crucial part of their effort will present their work and comment on it. The creators of significant art related software products will present their work, talk about it and exchange concepts, knowledge and future scenarios.
Several cutting edge hands-on demonstrations will be given during person to person exchange sessions.
In the final session of the workshop interoperability and open source for art and creative software development will be discussed among the audience and a panel of experts.
