What we're about

This is a group for people interested in joining meetups from community-related initiatives in and around Berlin, especially related to the fields of interdisciplinary art, science and digital culture. Our current communities include:

• movLab: a community researching ways to digitize motion and the human body and to make the data accessible for further use in VR, gaming, stage performance or art.

• VJ Open Lab: an open collaborative Berlin-based community of VJs, visual artists, creative coders, musicians, and video enthusiasts. http://vjopenlab.com (http://vjopenlab.com/)

• Scent Club Berlin: an artistic collective and a community of smell enthusiasts, meeting up monthly in Berlin. Everybody who is interested in working with the sense of smell is invited to join. https://www.facebook.com/pg/scentclubberlin // https://www.instagram.com/scentclubberlin/

movLab #31 presents Feli Cabrera López (aka Efe Ce Ele)

Feli Cabrera López (aka Efe Ce Ele - New Media Artist) is a multifaceted artist, designer, writer and a transgender activist; focused on human body, abstraction, perception, physics and semiotics. She is an artist in residence this Autumn in the Willows Nest. Feli Cabrera López is a strange mix between “opposite” concepts, a constant confrontation against binarism culture (body/mind, order/chaos, good/wrong, male/female, right/left…). Her art production methods develop her view of life, her resulting artworks are always a conflicting contrast between neo-expressionism and minimal-design, between abstraction and figuration, between health and illness, between clean and abject and between other “betweens”, always transiting between the limited concepts. As an artist she works with formats like music, sound-art, transmedia-performance and transmedia-installation. She has exhibited in different places such as International Image Festival, Contemporary Venice, Balance Unbalance, The Wrong Biennale and Escuchar Festival, among others. This meetup is a teaser to the Metastasis III Transmedia Performance of Feli Cabrera Lopez happening on the[masked] https://www.facebook.com/events/674967439648261/ We strongly believe in the Berlin Code of Conduct: https://rubyberlin.github.io/code-of-conduct/.

VJ Open Lab #19 is dedicated to the theme FLOW: A lab for visual and acoustic experimentation with flows. Doors open 19.30. 1) ICE BREAKERS - 3 x 10 minutes performances: Katia Vonna Beltran / Jana Spacelight / Jean P'ark. 2) STREAMS and RIVERS - trial and error - the artists go further in experiments they started together. 3) CYCLES - a time-space to experiment and let our signals flow. No online application, no selection, anybody can participate! Free entrance. We encourage small donations to develop the VJ Open Lab community's projects. ******************** Katia Vonna Beltran uses during her performances, objects of her daily life gleaned during her travels, who become the actors of her miniature theater. The recycling of all the materials used is at the heart of her creative process that she wishes the simplest as possible. Far from the sophisticated tools and often perceived as obligatory, the production of images is carried out here by creative processes close to DIY with the help of prosaic objects, which surround us and acquire by this new use a dimension of poetry and expressiveness. Obvious simplicity that gives to see another possible world, made of empowerment, artivism, the use of a free computer system allowing to give birth to a shared emotional dimension which brings us back to a state of a child. It is about being at the heart of a reflexive process of invention of existence on the path of simplicity, travel and encounter. "There is no dissociation between my life and my achievements." https://vimeo.com/laboitecinema ******************** Jana Spacelight is a visual artist based in Berlin. Drawing on a professional background in architecture, she deeply believes in the strong effect of the designed environment on us, the creators. With this mind, she's constantly searching for harmonic spatial and emotional constellations - in the real as well as in the virtual. Her projects range from interactive installations to live performances and she's among the co-founders of the VJ Open Lab. https://vimeo.com/user81103524 ******************** Jean P'ark is a musician and sound artist from Berlin, Germany. She is playing in different projects as well as solo with the focus on the creation of atmospheres and varying moods, always questioning how the produced sounds influence the (well-) being of herself and other organisms. Furthermore, they work in the field of dance, movement and performance and create sound for films, videos and installations. https://jean-park.tumblr.com/sound
