The "BIX Entertainment System" is a project of Matthias Esterl, an austrian based developer and designer of fine interactive media and light installations.
It was created as a major part of his bachelor thesis at the University of Applied Science, FH Joanneum Graz. The process and publication of this thesis is supervised and supported by Orhan Kipcak and the realisation is based on a great cooperation with the team of the Kunsthaus Graz and John Dekron.
A special thanks also go to Alexander Schmidt, who contributed to this project by finding and eliminating critical bugs and writing the code for the 'Liveview'-scraper.
