I'm enjoying this series, especially the comparisons to calligrammes, and am looking forward to the third installment.

One small correction: The "Closed Society" image by Roy of SAC was created October 24, 1997 and published worldwide in an artpack, SAC1297B.ZIP, in December of the same year.

PILGRIMAGE 2004 - An American Demoparty!


Dates:
Fri Sep 17, 2004 00:00 - Wed Mar 31, 2004

Pilgrimage, Inc., a non-profit corporation of Utah is proud to announce the second annual PILGRIMAGE 2004 - An American Demoparty, taking place in Salt Lake City, Utah, September 17-18th.

Celebrating art in technology, the PILGRIMAGE 2004 DEMOPARTY is an exciting two-day event which serves as a virtual honey pot for software programmers, digital graphic artists and electronic musicians; professional an amateur alike. Artists from around the world travel to compete in the main events of the festival, the "compos", in categories such as: real-time 3d animation (demo), still image pixel graphics, graphics made from ASCII text characters (textmode), electronically composed and tracked music, and several other live "fast-made" competitions; where participants must create their entries on the spot, live at the party place while passing spectators watch. Over $6,000 in prizes were awarded to winners of the various competitions last year.
