Our Response: Live Remote Lasercutting

SVG2BVG at Transmediale

After having our DIY laser cutter exiled from the Haus der Kulturen der Welt to a secret location in Kreuzberg, we completed some live remote laser cutting during the second half of the festival … from a secret Kreuzberg location. We’ll be making stencils later in the month at the Cognitive Cities Conference, and other TBA events. Stay tuned.

In case you haven’t heard, we will be presenting our SVG2BVG (yes, Evan + James, that’s Light Criticism 2.0 to you!) project at Transmediale, as part of Open Design City’s ‘Make Your Own Market’ event in ‘The Open Zone‘…

We will be at the CIA archives (i.e. House of World Cultures) allday, everyday! Come check us out.

SVG2BVG uses a custom software application to detect graffiti tags, and writes the ensuing shape directly to GCode file, allowing it to be sent to a laser cutter… then cuts it into a stencil, sized exactly for the screens on the Berlin U-Bahn.

Partners on this project: GRL Germany (Agents Scott + Rosner, Seemiramis, Olivio Sarikas, and Achim Kern), with Christophe Vaillant, Tristan August and with assistance from Onformative.

PS – we will also be showing a sneak-peek of blitzTag, our new Laser tracking software…
