Constant sponge

Vernissage: Thursday July 23, 18:00-22:00 @ Constant Rue du Fortstraat

Sponges, the members of the phylum Porifera (/pəˈrɪfərə/; meaning "pore bearer"), are a basal Metazoa (animal) clade as a sister of the Diploblasts. They are multicellular organisms that have bodies full of pores and channels allowing water to circulate through them, consisting of jelly-like mesohyl sandwiched between two thin layers of cells.

Digital snapshots, audio recordings, screen grabs, video clips, radio programs, posters, publications, mindmaps: for 20 years dribs and drabs of digital detritus have washed ashore the various servers of Constant. Over the last three years, Constant collaborated with Michael Murtaugh and Martino Morandi on the ’sponge’, an ecosystem of tools to index, link, and rewrite these digital materials to tell (new) stories of more than two decades of activities. Resulting playlists will be shown in the Constant aquarium (aka window).

At the opening you can pick up a copy of Iterations, the latest addition to our Books with an Attitude. Also, we will say a (temporary?) farewell to our beautiful SNCBench...
