HOW I LEARNED TO LOVE RFID

How I Learned to Love RFID: Hartware MedienKunstVerein at the PHOENIX Halle, Dortmund Public lectures (in English), HMKV, Dortmund, in cooperation with RIXC, Riga Saturday, May 20, 2006, 10:00 – 18:00

The series of lectures brings together approaches and projects that artistically and critically deal with Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Technology – a technology that is significantly being developed and advanced by companies and research institutes in Dortmund. This technology which at first glance seems to be a simple further development of the bar code (well known from the supermarket) is much more powerful that the good old bar code technology. RFID tags are passive radio transmitters, which upon receiving a minor wireless energy impulse are sending back the information stored on their memory. Today, this information can be read already at a distance of six meters – without the process getting noticed. In addition, with its unique identification numbering system, this technology will allow for a precise identification of every object worldwide. What will it be like to live in a world where all the objects constantly will be talking to each other?

19:00 – 21:00 Solar Radio Station – Live Installation (also on Sunday May 21, 2006) The Riga based group Clausthome and VJ Martins Ratniks (F5/RIXC) will perform live in the Solar Radio Station. The live audio stream from the VIRAC radio telescope in Irbene, carrying data from the sun and from space, will be electronically enhanced by Clausthome and interpreted visually by VJ Martins Ratniks.

The lectures take place as a part of the workshop “How I learned to love RFID” in the framework of the exhibition “mit allem rechnen/face the unexpected: Media art from Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania“.

“How I learned to love RFID” is a cooperation between HMKV (Dortmund) and RIXC (Riga).
