What’s an Audiovisual Source Code?

25.06.2014 by ZEMOS98

Our memories are part of a living archive, we are constantly producing and re-interpreting images, in fact we are built with images. We feel the need of explaining ourselves through audiovisual contents.

A source code is the combination of text which enables a computer to execute a software item. Sharing the source code is the basis of free software. The Audiovisual Source Code sets out from the point of applying this idea to culture, to realize that every cultural issue is produced through different voices in relation to the context where it’s produced. Creativity is often represented as witchcraft in the Western World; The Audiovisual Source Code tries to erase this idea of the artist as an inventor and the Copyright laws that are supported by this idea, as well as the business models produced by the cultural industries. This format lets us rethink culture as an infinite palimpsest, art as a game between different people from different eras, remixing as a cultural system where these processes take place.

The Audiovisual Source Code as a space to play and experiment, as a hybrid frame between a lecture and a screening, and many more things.
