Bring Your Own Beamer (BYOB) is an open, ephemeric exhibition featuring artists, whose activity focuses on media and technologies. The original formula was conceived in 2010 by Rafaël Rozendaal, a Dutch-Brazilian artist.
Everyone is welcome to present their work. We endorse projections, installations, inventions, A/V live sets, digital presentations and VR materials. The thematic focus of the meeting encompasses algorithms and latency.
As Matteo Pasquinelli stated in “The blind eye of the algorithms”, „(…)the eye of the algorithm is torn into pieces, like an eye of a miserable demi-god”
We render this topic quite extensively, as a pattern of behaviour endorsing the primacy of media and demonstrating a potential for creative distortion of environment. Our interest went beyond the message carried by the “light projection” and instead focused on its interaction with the “living tissue”. Latency means delay, an offset between a gesture or behavior and its digital mediation, and deflects time-space. How does “dataveillence” operate today?
