Ad-hoc software/hardware solutions for the 21st century media artist

Ubique Media specialises in software and hardware development for (new) media art applications. We provide our customers affordable and ad-hoc solutions of the highest calibre for a variety of applications, such as audiovisual installations/performances, interactive art, net-art, software-art, web-art, new music instruments (NIMEs), VJing, Robotics, light installations, 2D/3D computer graphics, etc—you name it! We are committed in helping artists minimise the distance from an idea to its eventual implementation, and we can be involved in all stages in-between: consultancy, development, testing, refactoring, installation, technical support, and maintenance. Ubique Media comprises a core team of internationally active and experienced developers, artists, designers, makers and researchers of disparate backgrounds, all specialising in particular technologies. Our software/hardware has appeared in acclaimed museums and festivals, such as e.g. Bozar Center for Fine Arts (Brussels, BE), The Barbican Centre (London, GB), VideoBrasil (São Paulo, BR), Transmediale (Berlin, DE), Wroclaw Media Arts Biennale (Wroclaw, PL), Greek National Museum of Contemporary Art (Athens, GR), Thessaloniki Center of Contemporary Art (Thessaloniki, GR), and others. More, we are dedicated supporters of free/libre/open-source technologies and devoted to spreading our know-how, either by means of releasing code and relevant technical resources back to the community, or through workshops and other educational activities.
