MakerMonday is a monthly workshop that develops open innovation in digital technology in Birmingham, bringing together technologists and creatives.
This month’s workshop will be led by Antonio Roberts on digital reappropriation, turning image and text files into music. We’d like for everyone to try and bring their laptops for this session, as it will involve using a computer.
Antonio Roberts is a new-media artist and curator based in Birmingham. His artwork focuses on the errors and glitches generated by digital technology. An underlying theme of his work is open source software, free culture and collaborative practices. As a performer and visual artist his work has been featured at a number of galleries and festivals including Loud Tate: Code at Tate Britain (2014), glitChicago at the Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art in Chicago, US (2014), and Common Property at Jerwood Visual Arts, London (2016). As a curator he has delivered exhibitions and projects including the Birmingham editions of Bring Your Own Beamer (2012, 2013), μChip 3 (2015), and Stealth (2015). He is an Associate Producer at Vivid Projects and is a Fellow at Birmingham Open Media. www.hellocatfood.com
