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)
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

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
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)
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
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

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?

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?

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
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.
