slampoetrypictures.de takes part with pixels animations in blinkenlights.arcade for the Bibliothèque nationale de France in Paris (Nuit Blanche) ( Arcade Paris, 25. September - 6. Oktober 2002 Arcade is the brand new light installation of Project Blinkenlights. Following up on the original Blinkenlights installation in Berlin, Arcade marks a new step in interactive light installations in public space. In the context of the Nuit Blanche art festival in Paris, the team transforms the Tower T2 of the Biblioth¸que nationale de France into a huge computer screen. With a matrix of 20 x 26 windows (resulting in 520 directly addressable pixels) and a size of 3370m2, the Arcade installation is positioned to be world's biggest computer screen ever. Public Participation Using the newly created ArcadePaint program - running on Mac OS and Windows operating systems - everybody can start creating his own pictures and animations immediately. The resulting files can be sent to us by e-mail to become part of the ever-growing playlist of animations to be displayed during the lifespan of Arcade. Programmers might check out opportunities to create animations directly by creating the simple, XML-based file format, which is a natural evolution of the original Blinkenlights Movies file format. C experts interested in creating interactive games and applications for Arcade might want to check out the Blinkenlights Library (blib). The programming is comparably simple. If you have any results, send them to us (see below).
