…after long hiatus we are back, we did survive and are still (t)here. Past is past, future is ahead, let’s meet up if we can.
Our events are running since 2008 in several forms, hosted by different people, across many venues, and with varied approaches. The common denominator was/is/will(?)be the creative use of real-time graphics in spaces outside of just a computer screen, in most cases synced with sound.
This night is a part of Digital Peckham Festival and we are really excited to be part of it.
Our ethos: no farty vibe, be nice, always share and be supportive.

Egle Saka is a prolific video artist and printmaker currently based in London, UK. Egle’s print designs primarily derives from the use of obsolete and vintage analog technologies in her videography work. Combining analog photography, analog video synthesizers and glitch aesthetics she creates hand made and limited screen print editions as well as giclee prints. Being an aspiring videographer and a VJ enthusiast as well as audiovisual percormance practitioner herself, inevitably, most of her visuals circle around the nostalgic analog CRT TV and VHS visual styles. She often extracts the particular textures and patterns common in the particular practice and converts them into printed matter.
Her latest printed editions are series of NEON CRT prints, inspired by the phosphorescent Cathode-ray-tube monitors and their often painterly textural varieties that can be caught on camera.
