Piksel06 - Hardware Politics - festival for free / libre and open source audiovisual SW, HW and ART. 12 -15 october 2006 in Bergen, Norway. 70 participants from 20 countries gather in Bergen for 4 days of exchanging art, code and ideas based on practical implementations of free culture. Piksel is an annual event for artists and developers working with free and open source audiovisual software. Part workshop, part festival, it is organised in Bergen, Norway, by the Bergen Centre for Electronic Arts (BEK) and involves participants from more than a dozen countries exchanging ideas, coding, presenting art and software projects, doing workshops, performances and discussions on the aesthetics and politics of free and open source software. The theme of Piksel06 - 'hardware politics' - brings in open hardware as a new focus area of vital importance in the fight for freedom of information and independent artistic expression in the digital domain.

This isn't the first 3D IFS program (i did one in 1990) and certainly not the prettiest (see XenoDream and Chaoscope) but as far as i know it is the first to handle transparency and occlusion. Congratulations Don, very promising work!
Update: Don has made another, better animation with his software, see it here.
