We all know PDF from daily life. If you were to ask a room full of people whether they’ve come into contact with a PDF document, all would raise their hand. From invoices, receipts, to lab-results (keeping it current for 2020-2021), everyone has seen a PDF firsthand.

But how many have seen a PDF that inspired them? A PDF that awed them? How many artists do you know that use PDF as their medium?

In this presentation, I want to highlight the extraordinary sides of the PDF spec. I want to show people that PDF can be more than “where data goes to die”.

This talk focusses on topics such as: 3D annotations, movie, sound, javascript, escape-room like PDF documents built from embedded files and password protection and much more.
