A new piece of the Elsewhereness-series has been launched. It was commissioned by Impakt 2010 in Utrecht, NL. This year’s programme of Impakt online is built around the theme: “The City as Interface”.
From the website:
“For this year’s programme, Impakt Online invited artists, architects, urban planners, researchers, programmers and the like to submit their proposals for online projects that consider the city as interface, buildings as responsive surfaces, mobile phones as tools for playing and mapping, and technological traces as data for art and research.
This evening programme includes a lecture by Marc Tuters (who invented the term ‘locative media’) and the launch of the three Impakt Online 2010 projects, with a presentation by Claudia Bernett on her work Tall Tales and the premiere of Elsewhereness Utrecht. The audience will be the first to participate in Christian Nold’s mapping project Control.
The projects are available on: www.impakt.nl/online, accompanied by interviews with the artists. ‘Impakt Online: The City as Interface’ is curated by Sabine Niederer and produced by Koen Poelhekke.”
