[Nettime-nl] Press Release 7 Scenes

The city is a stage, and you are the director

How would you create a scene where actors would shine and spectators would cheer? 7 Scenes will allow you to use your mobile phone to browse through different scenes in a city play. Wednesday 26 September at PICNIC’07, Waag Society’s Locative Media programme is running a workshop and kickoff of 7Scenes.

7 Scenes
