Dit jaar werkt GOGBOT samen met MAD uit Eindhoven. MAD is een laboratorium, platform en provider voor ‘emergent art’: kunst die ontstaat vanuit het spanningsveld tussen culturele – en cutting-edge technologische ontwikkelingen. In het thema Internet of Things hebben deze twee organisaties zich weer gevonden. Mad en Gogbot werkten al eerder samen op Tecart 2015 en Gogbot 2014. Een voorbeeld hiervan is het prachtige Seeker project van Angelo Vermeulen van Gogbot 2014 die een voorganger had in Eindhoven tijdens de Dutch Design Week 2013. Tijdens Gogbot 2015 presenteert Mad met de MadClasses en MadTalk een preview op haar event tijdens de Dutch Design Week 2015  in Eindhoven.

Sander Veenhof /  Karina Pálosi – The Internet of Anonymous Things

>>> SIGN UP HERE <<<
location: Concordia Cinema

Experts en nerds zijn het er al lang over eens: het Internet of Things staat voor de deur. Ben je nog niet bekend met de materie en/of heb je nog geen huisraad gekoppeld aan het internet der dingen? Geen nood. Onze “internet der gewone dingen” workshop helpt je aansluiting vinden bij het IoT tijdperk. Laat je Arduino thuis (of vergeet dit verzoek, als je niet weet waarom je een Arduino thuis zou willen hebben) maar neem wél 1 apparaat naar keuze mee. Met onze generieke multi-sensor gaan we trachten dat apparaat te verbinden met “the cloud”. En dan? Dat weten wij ook nog niet. Misschien zetten we stap 1 in een hedendaagse variant van “Der Lauf der Dinge”.

valery_vermeulenValery Vermeulen is a Belgian multimedia artist, electronic musician, music producer, mathematician and guest lecturer at various Belgian art institutes. Between 2001 and 2005 Vermeulen worked at the Institute for Pschychoacoustics and Electronic Music (IPEM, Ghent University) on a research project focusing on the link between music and emotions. Since 2004 Vermeulen has been working on several interactive multimedia installations where the man-machine interaction plays a central role.


sander_veenhofSander Veenhof is a hands-on futurist, creating interactive experiences to explore scenario’s for a speculative but highly probable future. By staging events in a parallel reality that can be accessed with “AR” or “VR” viewers, his projects reflect on our gradual transformation into cyborgs living in an interconnected world of material, data and last but not least: people. Stepping beyond the obvious functionality of emerging hard- and software, his work addresses and pre-emptively fixes technosocial problems related to a future reality which will no longer be called augmented nor virtual.


mark_vander_netMark van der Net is an architect, urban planner and programmer with expertise in smart cities. In 2013 he founded OSCity, a system inspired by open source in which geografical big data can be transformed to innovating solutions for urban projects. OSCity has a large technical ecosystem with geografic databases, aggregation system and analysing- and visualisingtools, and has been on the front of the growing knowledge about ‘Smart Urbanism’.
