Bring Your Own Beamer - SATX!
BYOB is a series of one-night exhibitions hosting artists and their beamers (projectors). All artists are invited to show work during BYOB-SATX, with the only requirement being they provide their own projector (open to interpretation) and work. Installation is free-form, with artists reacting to the space and their fellow beamers throughout the night. Just show up, plug in and beam. First initiated by Rafaël Rozendaal in 2010, over 80 BYOB events have taken place throughout the world, from Berlin and Tokyo, to San Francisco and New York City. http://www.byobworldwide.com/
BYOB-SATX is facilitated and organized by The Lullwood Group of San Antonio and Norberto Gomez, Jr., an artist and writer based in Richmond, Virginia.
More details: beamers, or projectors, may consist of the typical digital projector used by computers or your television, or that elementary overhead projector, or a child’s toy. Other “screen” material like computer monitors or televisions are also acceptable. BYOB-SATX is also open to creative interpretations of the “projector,” light & dark as medium, the moving image, music/sound/noise, installation, and shadow-performance.
Make sure to bring your cords, dvd players, computers, vcr, etc. and extra power strips is always helpful.
