We had a great time in Brussels delivering our app “Comic Strip”, the result of our four months residency with Wiki-Art.
NANTES HACKATHON OCT 13
Back to October 2013, our group met at the ICT + Art Connect Hackathon in Nantes. An adventure… 24h non-stop – apart from a few naps – creating the concept of Magic Drawing.
We were awarded in the Wiki-Art Challenge and we were later offered a residency to develop the project. Another big challenge, as my colleges are based in Nantes and I’m in London!
BRUSSELS MAY 14 – ICT + Art Connect – Final Event
After many emails exchange and Skype calls, finally we went to Brussels to show the result of our hard work!

On Monday 12th we presented our project at the Charlemagne Building/ European Commission along with all the residents. It was followed by panels of discussions on the European trends of the bringing togheter of arts and technology, exploring new collaborative ways of working.
ABOUT COMIC STRIP & THE RESIDENCY
Artists/ designers/ ICT/Science professionals: Marie Lamouret, Félix Lepoutre, Richard Piron, Sylvia Morgado & Victor Pedraza
This collaboration between artists and technologists from Nantes and London enables the creation of interactive tablet based drawings: a mobile application that facilitates the co-creation of a collaborative visual comic strip through drawings made by different users.
