Artistic Bokeh in co-operation with Apertus Open Source Cinema and Artistic Technology Research (University of Applied Arts) is presenting the exhibit Open Source Cinema Lab at quartier21 in MuseumsQuartier Vienna.
Open Source Cinema Lab examines the emerging 'third-industrial revolution' that is occurring within the garages and workshops of enthusiasts. These enthusiasts have been coined 'makers', and are already drawing the attention of governments, with Barack Obama recently hosting a 'Maker Faire' at the Whitehouse. However, this 'maker movement' isn't only causing a technological sea change in terms of industrial manufacturing, but also a restructuring of the basic principles of the market. This is evident in particular with the Apertus Open Source Cinema project which is featured within the exhibition, and their strong ethos of openness. Apertus endorses freedom, by ensuring that they produce will be free to be used for any purpose, free to be studied, and free to modify, and free to redistribute copies and copies of any modified versions to others. This freedom and openness will liberate makers, cultural producers and artists to experiment and create in hitherto unimagined ways.
Artistic Bokeh seeks to draw attention to this groundbreaking project with this exhibit and encourages the public to contribute to Apertus' crowdfunding campaign to produce the world's first publicly available open source cinema camera. Artistic Bokeh will also be launching an open call for open designs for the new Apertus Axiom cinema camera.
The exhibition launches at the Artistic Bokeh Showroom on September 24 19:00-22:00 with a presentation from Artistic Technology Research and Apertus Open Source Cinema.
