OuNuPo, Ouvroir de Numérisation Potentielle, the workshop of potential
XPUB, Varia and WORM invite you for an evening of book scanning, short
presentations, discussions and software experiments in the context of
text digitisation and processing.
Doors open at 19:00, presentations start at 19:30.
From January until the end of March 2018 the practitioners of the Media
Design Experimental Publishing Master course (XPUB) of the Piet Zwart
Institute, in collaboration with Manetta Berends & Cristina Cochior
(Varia) and the WORM Pirate Bay, have set sail on the vast sea of DIY
book scanning, feminist research methodologies, constraint writing,
algorithmic literature and the cultures of text digitisation and
The term OuNuPo is derived from OuLiPo (Ouvroir de littérature
potentielle), founded in 1960. OuLiPo is a mostly French speaking
gathering of writers and mathematicians interested in constrained
writing techniques. A famous technique is for instance the lipogram that
generates texts in which one or more letters have been excluded. OuLiPo
eventually led to OuXPo to expand these creative constraints to other
practices (OuCiPo for film making, OuPeinPo for painting, etc).
Following this expansion, XPUB launches OuNuPo, Ouvroir de Numérisation
Potentielle, the workshop of potential digitisation, turning the book
scanner as a platform for media design and publishing experiments.
In the past three months, the XPUB practitioners have used OuNuPo as a
means to reflect on several topics: how culture is shaped by book
scanning? Who has access and who is excluded from digital culture? How
free software and open source hardware have bootstrapped a new culture
of librarians? What happens to text when it becomes data that can be
transformed, manipulated and analysed ad nauseam?
To answer these questions, the XPUB practitioners have written software
and assembled a unique printed reader, informed by critical and feminist
research methodologies. The text selection explores the themes of the
digital transfer of cultural biases, Techno/Cyber/Xeno-Feminism, oral
culture in the context of knowledge sharing, shadow libraries, database
narratives, gender and future librarians. The content of the reader will
be scanned by a DIY book scanner built in the past months, and processed
by different software processes and performances written by the XPUB
practitioners, from chat bots to concrete poetry generators and speech
recognition feedback loops.
