motivation

DE PLAYER was asked by the XPUB programme of Piet Zwart Institute to do a seminar during a three-month period with their students. We proposed to the students that they devise an issue of our publication Tetra Gamma Circulaire. This is a magazine without any format, with the intention for a new one to be developed each time. We worked around the ideas present in our 'Pushing Scores' project. Each student had to develop their own project around the process of making a score. All these scores then had to come together in one magazine/object. One restriction was decided upon: The scores had to be presented on floppy disc. This was put in place to both limit possibilities and to unite the format. The result is a combination of several media, which all coexist in a designed concrete object. ‘Fred Flintstone meets the twenty-first century’, it was referred to as. It has a Raspberry Pi sits at its core, and is programmed for several applications. Aside from this, the magazine is also comprised of a floppy drive, speakers, an audio input, a camera, touchpads and an LED light.
