Presentation of the world smallest supercomputer / My name is Ivan and I build supercomputers in my spare time

Join us at Hacklab 01 for an interesting Upgrade!Zagreb gathering. We will present Parallella board and play a bit with it. Presenters will be Vedran Gligo and Ivan Krpan.

The Parallella platform is an open source, energy efficient, high performance, credit-card sized computer based on the Epiphany multicore chips developed by Adapteva. This affordable platform is designed for developing and implementing high performance, parallel processing applications developed to take advantage of the on-board Epiphany chip. The Epiphany 16 or 64 core chips consists of a scalable array of simple RISC processors programmable in C/C++ connected together with a fast on chip network within a single shared memory architecture.

The 66-core version of the Parallella computer delivers over 90 GFLOPS on a board the size of a credit card while consuming only 5 Watts under typical work loads. For certain applications, this would provide more raw performance than a high end server costing thousands of dollars and consuming 400W.

When Adapteva launched “$99 Parallella project” on  Kickstarter in 2012, the goal was to “democratize access to supercomputing”. With a $99 price point, they knew that they would not make a profit, but they figured the value of reaching the whole world with our technology was enough of a reward for Adapteva as a company. With over 8,500 boards shipped to 75 countries (and over 150 Universities), that is for certain a great start!

During presentation, we will show how to mount OS and few interesting applications for Parallella. Free entrance!

Alexandra Reill – Presentation of the book written entirely on FB platform:

7th june 2013 at 7 pm at Booksa book club, Martićeva 14d, Zagreb

“WB: quoting Walter Benjamin”

A print compilation and real-time performance reflecting the contemporary relevance of the media theorist and philosopher Walter Benjamin. 
The structure of facebook as a social networking tool and magazine with decentralized notes, essays and media publications, in a mixture of private and public statements coming from all kinds of content fields, enhanced the concept of short daily updating and interactive communication to collectively create an associative publication on life and oeuvre of Walter Benjamin.
 The book serves as the central requisite of the audiovisual real-time performance. People raise their voice as well as media stations, and there is an interplay between media and human voices. In a mixture of reading, discussion and interactive performance correlations between relevant factors and opportunities for development of democracy in the context of the 
information age, globalization, Capitalism and Marxism are reflected together – on the basis of the work of Walter Benjamin. Wo/man learns options and limits of self-determination, options and limits of scopes of action. Technology serves wo/man, and only a framework, only a context is given, in which each moment is designed differently – a moment which Walter
 Benjamin described as the Angelus Novus: the space where past and future coincide and where not ideas shape presence but where presence emerges.

More info on:

In the years 2010-2012, Alexandra Reill developed a trilogy of interactive media enactmens reflecting the contemporary relevance of life and oeuvre of Walter Benjamin, Hans Richter and Bertolt Brecht in an information age digitizing itself in manifold ways and at the same time struggling with turbulent economic difficulties. Besides Tribute to WB, Alexandra Reill will present also two more pieces from her interactive trilogy: Tribute to Hans Richter and Blessed Simonida.

Alexandra Reill, born in Vienna, is a conceptual and media artist and works as a filmmaker in documentary film; she invests her work with socio-cultural themes, examining the societal and sociological repercussions of digitalization and the information age for human identities. Her experimental visual worlds and live compositions as much as her performances are often participative and characterized by rhythmic and cineastic dramaturgies and the conscious employment of associative formal language, combining interactive technologies and participative communicational approaches in off- and online

Selection of projects:

2008 / 2012 / 2013 – Nelkengasse: a documentary film and portrait of Heinz
Moldau who was forced to flee with his family from Nelkengasse in Vienna in 1938.

Presentation / net club mama, Preradovićeva 18
16. May, 20013, at 8 pm.

In the spaces of net club mama, Croatian artist I.M.Klif,
will have informal presentation of his work and his
newest innovative and sublimely beautiful installations.

You are invited to join us there!

I.M. Klif is one of the most recognisable and most interesting names of the Croatian new media art scene. His continuous artistic work on the “borders of genres”, his questioning of possibilities offered by media, as well as his open approach ensured him a prominent place in contemporary visual arts. He has been dealing for many years now with explorations of the relationships between sound and image and their manipulation.
