Chris Wirth, better known to the art community as RadMan, is the imfamous founder of the renound art group ACiD (ANSI Creators in Demand). He started ACiD in 1990 and has been a leading figure in the art community even before that, making him a 15+ year veteran. Here at deviantART, we figure who better to teach a class about textmode than someone who's been a master at it for over a decade? Wirth or RadMan, whichever you prefer, is going to be giving a multimedia presentation on Textmode, a style of digital art that has been around since before the World Wide Web was a household name. His presentation, called "Beyond ASCII:THe Art of Textmode" will explain one of the key roots to art on the internet that go back to dial-in bulletin board systems and still thrive today as legitimate text art. Anybody who has experience in text art or even anybody who is interested in the history of digital art on the internet will take special interest in this very unique presentation by one of the internets best artists to date. Definitely not something to be missed, anybody in attendance will come out of the presentation with a better understanding of digital art, where it came from, and how text art paved the way for all digital art to come.
