<nettime-ann> IN[ ]EX:Vancouver::: Launch & Schedule of Events

:::::::::IN[    ]EX:::::::::

IN[  ]EX is a distributed audio sculpture in which thousands of wooden
blocks with embedded technology are released into the city to engage the
public as active agents.

The blocks are distributed through an array of interventions that reference
early models of instruction-based participatory works.

As the blocks circulate, they transmit data which is collected by mesh
networks and processed to create a constantly remixed sound environment in a
shipping container.

IN[  ]EX explores the migration of capital, goods, and people through the
ports and public spaces of Vancouver, Canada, and San José, California.
IN[  ]EX will launch at Centre A, Vancouver International Centre for
Contemporary Asian Art, on June 16, 2006 and will be part of ISEA 2006 in
San Jose, California August 7-13, 2006.
