Turbulence Commission: "Tweet4Action.com" by Les Liens Invisibles
[Needs Twitter Account and Smart Phone with the Layar app. Installed]
"Tweet4Action.com" is the ultimate tool for armchair activism. Discover how to set up the most radical street demonstrations and take part in them without any annoying risks. Created in the cultural context of "Twitter Revolutions," this new project from Les Liens Invisibles injects fervor into your tweety riots by mixing together the potent combination of Twitter, augmented reality, and data hallucination. Insurrections have never been so easy: just decide with a few clicks where you want to place your riot, pick a rebellion hashtag (#), and spread it all over the web. Your tweets will become the squatter demonstrators in the augmented reality space of your campaign!
Are you ready to change the world?
Don’t miss the action: augment your reaction!
"Tweet4Action.com" is a 2011 commission of New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc. for its Turbulence website. It was made possible with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts.
Les Liens Invisibles is an imaginary art-group from Italy. It is comprised of media artists Clemente Pestelli and Gionatan Quintini. Their work is an eclectic recombination of pop net culture, reverse engineering techniques, social media subvertising, and any other kind of media reappropriation. Since 2007, Les Liens Invisibles have been infiltrating the global communication networks in order to join and expand the invisible connections between art and real life. Most of their artworks and interventions -- which include a virtual suicide web service, the subvertising of many popular social networking platforms, and a paradoxical tool to reclaim the truth through the fake -- reached global media visibility and have been shown internationally.
