TouchDesigner Roundtable XXIX

24 Feb 2024 , 18:30 23:30 CET

Organized by The NODE Institute, the TouchDesigner Roundtable Berlin is the meeting point for creatives and developers who work with the visual development platform TouchDesigner as well as everybody who is curious about the world of interactive media art and the people behind it.

For the 29th edition of the Roundtable, we join MANIFEST:IO, the Symposium for New Media and Electronic Art, a two-day event organized by TimeLab, featuring a series of talks, performances, and an exhibition that highlights new media projects and installations by upcoming artists and media researchers. This allows us not only to show three diverse presentations, but also welcome you to a performance night that follows our talk series.

We join them in the charming Alte Münze, a venue rich in history in the heart of Berlin that is dedicated to art and culture.

Roundtable attendees will have free access to MANIFEST:IO on Saturday Feb 24th from 18uhr/6pm onwards. Register to secure your free ticket to MANIFEST:IO – registration will be checked at the door.


To secure your spot, please R.S.V.P – or get a supporter ticket!

19:00 Uhr / 7.00 PM / CAITY CROFT

Caity Croft is an artist/musician, former venture capital investor and narrative designer. She has built her artist and business career around the desire to improve humanity through immersive technology, gamification and storytelling on the individual, community and global levels. She’s passionate about immersive tech’s potential for mixed and extended reality entertainment and educational experiences that “gamify” personal development, driven by a desire to identify a core body of knowledge and skill set that would make her or others valuable members of society would lend itself to a varied, rapidly changing world. In this talk Caity shares how she engages with TouchDesigner for modern, updated takes on classic critical art theory through the musical lens of “I, Object”, one of her songs in her upcoming release. Caity will discuss how she is exploring how TouchDesigner could be applied to her transmedia artist music world building experience.

20:00 UHR / 8.00 PM / JUN SUZUKI & NICOLAS MICHEL

Flying in from France to talk and perform live, join us for an insightful artist talk with creative developer and singer Jun Suzuki, along with his collaborator, AI enthusiast and generative artist Nicolas Michel, as they delve into the making of their first-time collaboration process and philosophy. Centered around their A/V performance “Is this not real?”, their talk will explore how narrative and technological frameworks intertwine to create art that resonates on a personal level. Jun will reflect on his Japanese origins and how his exploration of cultural identity is given a new dimension through Nicolas’s insights on AI and the concept of dehumanization. Expect a conversation that moves beyond the technicalities, focusing on the emotional and conceptual aspects of their work.
