The LPM – Live Performers Meeting (XIII-XIV Editions) Athens HQ team is pleased to announce the successful organization and conduction of LPM | Athens Showcase in 22 & 23 March at experimental space an[a]mesa.
In the context of LPM | Athens Showcase we held the two-day workshop Arduino POV (Persistence of Vision) by Frown Tails with a team of participants that surprised us with their inspirational and creative messages generated with the help of POV technique. The enthusiasm of DIY gave way to a panel discussion on open source and free distribution. Representatives of Creative Commons and informed the local audience about misconceptions and myths of the above notions as well as about their activities as organizations. The audience was particularly active, broadening the thematic and intriguing the speakers with challenging questions and statements. The panel was rounded up by the presentation of AVnode platform by Gianluca del Gobbo, director of LPM – Live Performers Meeting.

Meanwhile and throughout Friday afternoon, the team of contestants for the Mapping projection contests | Variations of Parthenon had the chance to work on the 3D model of Parthenon and prepare for the finals. On Saturday evening the three finalists Marion Kostantines (aka vj markoira), Christos Kontogiorgas (aka cynic design) and Kostantinos Garinis (aka vj codec), with mapping projection technique as their tool presented their individual perspective of the monument experimenting with distortion of color and form. The winner, Kostantinos Garinis was announced at the very that evening along with an official invitation to Rome by the director of LPM. The evening closed with an AV performance of Cretan music by George Zacharioudakis, John Papatzanis and Nikos Katritzidakis fused with electronic and tribal sounds by Zen Garden and visuals by vj sbell.

It was a great honor for us to have been meeting point and the platform for people to share their enthusiasm about contemporary trends of visual culture and open source spirit. What we consider as most significant accomplishment is the attraction of a local audience new to the above practices and which will set the ground to strengthen and broaden the creative and open community we envision.

We would like to thank all of our partners and our audience, for without their help and participation none of the above would have been accomplished.
