a bubbly insiders view of the tech-art brewery

f0amfr0th is a series of events organised by FoAM and whoever happens to be visiting the organisation. The events have an open format that can range from a theoretical talk to chill out rooms, from improvised networked performances to orchestrated bio-chemical experiments. Spontaneity, improvisation and informality are keywords that will grant access to this programme to the public and anyone interested in the process of working in the field of art and technology.

f0amfr0th09: Man - Horse

2008-01-04 17:30 Europe/Brussels

To celebrate (or perhaps invoke) its fertility, we will kick-off 2008 in a `down to earth' way. Our first event of the year will be the screening of Audrius Mickevicius' documentary about farmer Jonas and his horse. Jonas is one of the few remaining examples of the nearly extinct "Man – Horse" generation. A generation based on the existential relationship, a symbiosis of sorts, between the human and the animal.

We invite you to join us for the screening and a drink:

2003-08-23 20:00 Europe/Brussels

Swollen from months of breathing hot summer air, FoAM and Code 31 mark the end of the holiday season with a celebration of 'surface tension', the inflatable, the blown-up, the puffed-out and amplified space, contained within (hot-air) baloons, portable pools, inflatable architecture, inflatable clothing, soap bubbles, airy sounds, fizzy drinks, artificial muscles and pneumatic interfaces. The swelling party includes new installations and minute performances fresh from our summer labs, topical nourishment in media and matter, and the kick-start of the autumn season.

f0amfr0th07: inflatable meeting room

2004-12-04 02:00 Europe/Brussels

From the pneumatic turmoil of the tension workshop a shiny airtight meeting room suited for anyone from ordinary folks to inflated executives, is part of a show at Looking Glass. The silvery plastic film houses the bodies and heads of three people at a time for an intimate meeting in the shared chamber. This triangular starfish evolved out of the experiments of Linda Karlsson. Her inflated costumes started to swallow-up more and more people, duos and eventually trios.
