Platine shows an Amiga Ascii Art Special Exhibition

In 2011 we participated in Platine Cologne with a "best of Evoke" demoshow. This year they have something really special:

In cooperation with Divine Stylers & Up Rough they present an Amiga Ascii Art Special Exhibition in Zoo Schänke (Cologne/Köln Ehrenfeld). 

Featuring the textmode-graphics from various artists and visualize them in a new way. By using various printing techniques they will transform these nostalgic artworks into reality and introduce them to the public in individual ways – from letters to characters up to complete comic-stories and abstract wild-styles.

The exhibition is part of Platine: starting on Monday after Evoke until the 23rd of August! Every day from 19:00 to 23:00. Free entrance!

The even more open ANSI/ASCII Competition

Even the good old ANSI/ASCII competition has to face changes for this year´s edition of Evoke: 

For the first time we will allow entries which have already been released in packs and collections, but only if these were released in 2013! The information has to be present with your submission and will be displayed on the big screen, so the visitors can judge. 

Just like the last years you do not have to be present at the party to release. The deadline for remote entries is 16th of August. 

We would like to make it a blast of a competition, so please contribute and show how vital the scene still is!

Seminars: Friedrich Kirschner on realtime in a theatre context

The second seminar on Evoke Saturday will be held by filmmaker, visual artist and software developer Friedrich Kirschner.

In his talk he will discuss how realtime animation can work in a theatre context. And how to provide tools for actors and directors that go beyond pretty stage-visuals, but actually impact the way we tell stories using live computer graphics.

The organizers of REUNION will, however, come to Demodays 2013 and recently invited all REUNION visitors to be at Demodays 2013 too. Dr. Science writes: "Wir würden uns freuen, wenn möglichst viele C64 Szene-Freaks auftauchen würden um mit uns zu feiern und mit einem kühlen Bier auf die gute, alte Zeit anzustossen :-)". We'll have special C64 features like the traditional Demoshow to welcome the REUNION regulars at our event. Welcome, REUNION!
