Pervasive and Locative Arts

On Feb 1st and 2nd, I will be in London participating in the first PLAN workshop, taking place at the ICA from 10am-6pm each day, with music the first night.

The event is open to the public, so if you're around, please consider swinging by for one or both days.

First Workshop of the Pervasive and Locative Arts Network

A two day event bringing together leading international figures to review the emerging fields of locative and pervasive media.

Wireless and locative technologies are enabling people to break away from traditional computer interfaces. Mobile devices are mediating new kinds of social interaction and responding to physical location and context.

What kinds of creative, social, economic and political expression become possible when every device we carry, the fabric of the urban environment and even the contours of the Earth become a digital canvas?

The event launches a new international network (PLAN), bringing together artists, activists, hardware hackers, bloggers, game programmers, free network builders, semantic web philosophers, cartographers, economists, architects, and university and industry researchers.

Speakers include Duncan Campbell, Anne Galloway, Matthew Chalmers, Matt Adams, Bill Gaver, Eyal Weizman, Sally Jane Norman, Giles Lane, Usman Haque, Franz Wunschel, Richard Hull, Jo Walsh, Teri Rueb, Minna Tarkka, Tapio Makela, RIXC, Pete Gomes, Saul Albert, Susan Kennard, Michael Longford, Steve Benford, Drew Hemment, Ben Russell. Music in the bar from Xela (City Centre Offices, Type Records), XFM Flo-Motion DJ Nick Luscombe and Apachi61.

Full Programme | Speakers Day 1 & Day 2

PLAN is supported by EPSRC and led by Nottingham's Mixed Reality Lab, with partners including Futuresonic (UK), Blast Theory (UK), Banff (Canada) and M-cult (Finland).

Event tickets are priced at 1.50 per day or 3 for two days to cover the ICA daily membership. Please book early to avoid disappointment.
