What is Alternative Party?

Alternative Party is an annual demoscene and new media festival. The first Alternative Party was held at Turku 1998. The heart of Alternative Party is at demoscene and demos which are audiovisual works. Because of their real time nature they set boundries and challenge to the artists and coders creating them.

Glittermouse and NE7

Glittermouse will be one of the artists at Altenative Party 2009 exhibition. She is a visual artist who works across a range of different disciplines but is especially interested in the relationships between humans and environment and in questioning the boundaries between new and traditional media. NE7 has been a musician in the demoscene since the mid 90's and is an active member of triad, scoopex, rebels and napalm.

Glittermouse’s multimedia drawing installations are made by projecting digital images (photographic, digital video, pixel and vector graphics) on to a large sheet of wall mounted paper and then using traditional drawing methods and materials to interact visually with the projected images.
