First of all:
GREAT work of the organizers.
keep in mind that they weren’t eventmanagers until now…
Let me quote
Just back from Frankfurt where i participated to the marvelously organized and well-attended Node08 Forum for Digital Art conference.
With lectures, workshops, patcher kutcha’s, exhibitions and installations concerning the visual programming video toolkit VVVV, NODE08 really was an inspirational event.
of course there are some things to improve:
*the DMXworkshop was meant to be advanced. it was communicated that one should know about DMX/ArtNet.in fact most of the visitors didn’t know this so the workshop turned to be a beginners one. sorry for that. more advanced stuff next node.
*people working honorary from morning until late in the night have to pay their drinks and their food? IMO this is a no-go for the next time. working without wages is somehow ok, but you can’t bring money with you.
*better raise prises then. 111€ is more a joke than a price. other software workshops raise multiples of this for only one day.
*don’t keep techriders of artists hidden. avoid surprises.
*perhaps one week before LUMINALE. i didn’t have the possibility to visit the Light&Building Fair which is in fact the most important fair for me. hotels are cheaper then too.
frankfurt btw. has several advantages:
@MSBERGER and his company supplying immense amounts of Video,PC,Audio equipment is around. if they hadn’t sponsored the node, prices had to be around 5x as high i assume.
