satelites.jpgFrom the 10th to the 14th of May 2011 the Plataforma Cero of LABoral welcomes an international meeting to critically and artistically investigate satellites, that fundamental, often occult, sign of our times :: Los Prados, 12133394 Gijón (Asturias), Spain :: Phone: +34 985 185 577

▪ Politics and Poetics of satélites. MSST, Joanna Griffin, Reni Hoffmuller ….

“Galileo collapsed Geocentricity but this has been reconstructed through the unstoppable and insatiable ambition for connectivity that is today represented by the ring of artifical geostationary satellites. The Earth thus re-becomes an immobile object in the middle of a spinning “universe”.” Mathurin Milan Continue reading

Net_Music_Weekly: Hertzian Rain [us Buffalo]

hertzian_rain.jpgHertzian Rain by Mark Shepard :: February 13, 2011; 3:00 – 5:00 pm :: Burchfield Penney Art Center, 1300 Elmwood Avenue, Buffalo, New York.

Live sound from multiple sound makers is streamed from a set of wireless transmitters placed at opposing sides of an urban space. These transmitters broadcast these audio streams locally on the same radio frequency to a group of participants wearing wireless headphones tuned to this frequency. Because the transmitters broadcast on the same local frequency, a zone of interference is created where multiple audio streams compete for signal dominance.

Participants carry umbrellas made of electromagnetic field (EMF) shielding fabric that enable them to actively shape the surrounding environment of radio waves. By orienting the umbrella in different ways, one is able to filter the interfering radio signals and select a single audio stream to listen to. Continue reading

Live Stage: Moving Forest [de Berlin]

movingforest.jpgMoving Forest: Insurgency – presented by AKA the castle @ CONSPIRE, Transmediale08, House of World Cultures, Berlin :: February 1, 2008.

Moving Forest of the PEOPLE’S FRONT is conspiring with KEIN.ORG and INURA (International Network for Urban Research and Action) in a call for an INSURGENCY act. The Russians took Moltke bridge. The prisoners took JVA Moabit. We take the prisoners. We are all 129a. The walls are blasted. The data are mined. The phones are tapped. The lives of others. We listen through walls. The cities of others. We walk through walls.

Moving Forest, conceived by Shu Lea Cheang (Plenum, nodeLondon06) and Martin Howse (xxxxx, nodeLondon06), is a 12 hour 5 act sonic performance operating with public wifi and mobile technology – an expandable citywide operatic manoeuvre / intervention. Continue reading

Trampoline: Call for Submissions [uk Nottingham]

trampoline.jpgTRAMPOLINE, Year 10: The Surveillance City :: Call For Submissions :: DEADLINE: November 12, 2007 :: EVENT TO BE HELD ON: November 29, 2007.

If we are not to be played and lost like Pawns scrabbling on the surface of a chessboard we need to understand the rules of the game we are engaged in. As developers buy up our city centres for regeneration into desirable properties for the market, a similar appropriation is taking place within the spectrum that lies above. The air we breathe is itself becoming digital real estate, an intangible landscape carried on radio waves, filling the voids of our cities like Dark Matter. Continue reading

The Warbike

warbike2_bike.jpgDid you know that almost anywhere that you go in a city you’ll be sharing space with someone’s private wireless computer network? All of their personal communication—e-mail, love messages, bank passwords, credit card numbers, and bizarre surfing habits—will be passing through your body without your awareness. Who are they, and how do you feel about sharing space with their personal life? David McCallum’s Warbike turns this wireless network activity into sound. As you cycle the streets, you’ll hear the activity of this invisible communications layer that permeates our public spaces. From his thesis: Continue reading
