Constant Variable

Variable is the Free Libre Open Source Software Arts Lab that Constant ran between 2011 and 2014. Variable housed studios for artists, designer, techno-inventors, data-activists, cyber feminists, interactive-geeks, textile-hackers, video-makers, sound-lovers, beat-makers and other digital creators who are interested in using Free Libre Open Source Software for their creative experiments. That’s why the full name of the house was: Variable F/LOSS Arts Lab

The house was used by a loosely connected group of people that work in four collective experimental studios: Open Sound Lab, Libre Video Lab, Open Hardware Studio, Open Source Publishing.
