Meet Soeren Pold
Organizer Soeren Pold in a rare relaxed moment. Based at the Digital Aesthetics Research Centre (http://www.digital-aestetik.dk/) he has been one of the Danish persons responsible for bringing Read_me to Aarhus. The idea was originally conceived while Alexei Shulgin was visiting to do a lecture, workshop and concert in Århus in 2002. One of the goals of this particular research centre is to build a bridge between the art departments and the departments dealing with multimedia and information technology. Read_me also brings the Jutland Academy of Fine Art into the equation, hopefully letting the festival act as a catalyst for the digital arts scene in Aarhus. And lets see if they will also start a Dorkbot branch at some point!
