TOWARDS AN ARTISTIC OPERATING SYSTEM   

Friday, 14th of November, 11.00 - 11.30
Examines the nodal point embodied in the notion of environmental code within the context of the concrete model offered by ap projects. Issues involved in the conception, development and implementation of ap and future fm01 work will be examined to totally elaborate a working model of environmental code and to define the notion of an artistic operating system which can be applied to a range of strata.

Can you combine sound & painting through driving? (Outdoor)
(Daniel) Yan Kwong Chan

A new method developed to enhance the experience of driving, this project uses the extraordinary interaction between the driver and vehicle as its focal point, as the speed of the engine generates digital sounds and images. Whilst car manufacturers constantly work to improve speed & comfort, they must pursue the most vital trend of the future - customizing the car so it may be better understood by humans.

Data Tagging (Indoor)
Dave Mee

The camera becomes a gateway to virtual space, a lens through which it can see an alternative representation of the world. Markers point to information - non-invasively providing the flexibility of electronic data to any kind of object or space.

By grounding the network's resources on real-world things, it's visitors will be those people who have had direct contact with the marker for it; visitors of a particular space or venue, on posters, or exhibits at a show. this allows for people to stumble onto local online resources, keeping electronic records based on their own physical networks. the internet regains geography.

ISS CUBE - Multiple-Input Device for Mixing Surround Sound (Indoor)
Markus M. Quarta

The ISS cube is an installation, for mixing surround sound in real-time, using multiple input devices. It provides a non-linear soundscape of music and sound which users can interact with and reconfigure in an intuitive and non-traditional manner.

Sounds of four different sets (electronic sounds, natural sounds, environmental sounds and voices) can be combined and positioned in space, represented by four surrounding speakers. The visitors can add and change sounds, change their volumes and shift their position by simply moving tiles around a table, like moving pieces on a checker board.

The Auto confessional version two (Indoor)
Jon Cambeul

This is the Auto Church v2 is a crucifix within a flight case mixed media wood alloy electronic components. This Product is second in a series of three worship utilities that were built at the end of the 90's. This one was made as something to mark the new millennium. It was pitched to be presented in the millennium dome for a laugh and nearly made it in. It has been exhibited in Salado, San Antonio, and Austin in Texas USA. In various modern art galleries and outsider art shows and by the side of the I45 highway On the Mexican border. It was built by the artist in his bed-sit in his spare time when not working as a warehouse operative packing garden furniture in Swindon Wiltshire in the south of England. As he sat in his lunch break in the smoky staffroom a light bulb suddenly went ting and he knew what he had to do!

what does it do?
It's got a pinhole analogue camera built into it to represent an all seeing eye and it is possible to link it to a real-time computer application to give it an interactive dimension. It also has a palm pilot that originally had the Old Testament on it but sadly the batteries ran out and the data was lost.

The concept is loosely based on the worship of technology. This product is highly portable and can be use for any worship occasion. Its not been blessed but that could be arranged. This product has been brought to you by a Human Fingers Tend The Automatic Production.

 

PROBOSCIS:   

Urban Tapestries
Friday, 14th of November, 13.00 - 13.30
Urban Tapestries is a framework for understanding the social, cultural, economic and political implications of pervasive location-based mobile and wireless systems. To investigate these issues, we are building an experimental location-based wireless platform to allow users to access and author location-specific content (text, audio, pictures and movies). It is a forum for exploring and sharing experience and knowledge, for leaving and annotating ephemeral traces of peoples' presence in the geography of the city.

 

URBAN REGENERATION  [___]  

Where Artists Go, Developers Follow
Friday, 14th of November, 14.00 - 15.30
Artists are now presented with new opportunities for funding from agencies with large regeneration budgets and a remit to stimulate neglected local areas.Culture is now actively enlisted to create new economies or to play a therapeutic role in regenerating ‘excluded ’ communities. But, in the absence of infrastructural renewal - housing, schools, hospitals etc - is art more than a sop to areas and communities whose immediate needs continue to be neglected? With The London Particular, Hi8us, ABI, CIDA, Digital Guild, moderated by Simon Pope.

 

WIRELESS FREE NETWORKS (((i)))

Friday, 14th of November, 17.00 -18.30
Wireless data networking and experiments with self-provision, digital cartography, mesh networking and applied research continue to challenge conventional wisdom about network access provision. Can telecommunication become an entirely personal affair, based on user-to-user networks that scale? With James Enck (City Analyst), Bruno Randolf (4G Systems), Adam Burns (free2air), Julian Priest (Consume/Informal), moderated by Armin Medosch.

 

FURTHERFIELD.ORG /````\ 

Saturday, 15th of November, 12.30 -13.00
Furtherfield is an online platform for the creation, promotion, criticism and archiving of adventurous digital/net art work for public viewing, experience and interaction. Furtherfield creates imaginative strategies that actively communicate ideas and issues in a range of digital & terrestrial media contexts; featuring works online and organising global, contributory projects, simultaneously on the Internet, the streets and public venues. Furtherfield focuses on network related projects that explore new social contexts that transcend the digital, or offer a subjective voice that communicates beyond the medium. Furtherfield collaborates with artists, programmers, writers, activists, musicians and thinkers who explore beyond traditional remits. Marc Garrett, Ruth Catlow, Neil Jenkins- Furtherfield team.

 

THE NETWORK MIRROR: COLLABORATIVE MAPPING  <--->

Saturday, 15th of November 13.00 -14.00
Over the last few years, disparate attempts have been made to visualise the dynamics of networks structures as they develop in the information age. Extending the open principles and protocols that lie at the base of the internet, many such initiatives are now combining their efforts in larger-scale projects of collaborative mapping. In The Network Mirror, the current state of play will be assessed by topical technical and social prisms. With Earle Martin (OpenGuides), Ben Russell (Headmap),Leigh Dodds (Foafomatic), Jo Walsh (Spacenamespace and MuteMap), Jamie King (GIG and Mute Magazine), co-ordinated by Saul Albert (University of Openness).

 

OPEN_DIGI ACTIVITY 2003 REVIEW, BY ATTY 

Saturday, 15th of November 15.30 -16.00
The open_digi association has brought together local and international artists working in various new media to create open access, digital-originated, art events in Brixton, South London.

In addition open_digi in conjunction with the international net artists group, OFFLINE was also central in starting in December 2002 the important online and event piece, the >wartime< project, 'reflections and reactions against wars, past, present and future' by over 150 digital and network artists from around the planet. Live events have been created around this collective work not only in Brixton but in diverse locations, bars, galleries, squat venues, a shoe shop, a tango club, cinemas etc situated from Los Angles to Montevideo to Berlin and many places in between.

open_digi organizer atty will illustrate and explain some of the activity and work of open_digi over the last 12 month, including recent open_digi parties in Amsterdam and Bucharest and also outline plans for the future including possible partnership with Brixton based commtech to bring the input of international net creatives to locally created online and net and mapping projects (commtech people will also add a short intro to their organization).

 

DO YOU SPEAK MEDIA ART? POSTCARDS FROM THE FLOATING WORLD  [^_^] 

Saturday, 15th of November 16.30 -18.00
What are the special merits of digital and net-worked art? Are their aesthetics genuinely new, or should their importance be sought in organisational experimentation and a socio-political drive? Through personal stories, collective myths, sanctioned and unsanctioned narratives, Do You Speak Media Art? will trace the emerging contours of a cultural category. With Simon Pope, Pauline van Mourik Broekman, Saul Albert, mervin Jarman, moderated by Armin Medosch.
