[Nettime-nl] [OKNO] Call for participants: Shifting Metropolis

OKNO - artist run organisation for art and media technology - Brussels

23-25/4 14h-18h Shifting Metropolis Workshop
26/4 18h Shifting Metropolis Public Event

OKNO would like to invite you to take part in the Shifting Metropolis workshop. Shifting Metropolis aims to let the inhabitants describe the city by gathering and mapping material found and created. Any media can be used, it doesn't matter whether it's images, sound, video, text, code, 3d models, patches... All material is geographically linked to a map and fed into an audiovisual framework, making an interactive installation that can be browsed by visitors on sunday night. The workshop is of a technological, but not a technical nature. They're will be no teaching and there is no knowledge necessary of anything but computer basics. For those who are more technically inclined, we'll be experimenting with a rudimentary arduino GPS device and QR-codes.

The premiere in Skopje was a great success, we are delighted to let the inhabitants of Brussels sketch their view of the city.

To apply please send an e-mail with very short motivation and bio to isjtar ("apenstaartje"/at) okno (dot) be. The planned schedule is everyday from 14h to 18h, but we are quite flexible as much time will be spent in the city individually.
