“Landvermesser.tv” is Map-based Storytelling

Monday, 21 July 2008

n-tv berichtet über eine Kulturprojekt, das im Juli 2008 in Berlin startet:

„Wir haben uns alle mit Literatur, Websites und Geotags beschäftigt und wollten das verschmelzen“, erklärt Tatjana Brode, die neben Jens Krisinger und Mathias Ott zu den Initiatoren des Projektes gehört. Kartenbasiertes Erzählen bedeute bislang meist, zweckorientierte oder historische Informationen zu verorten, so Brode weiter. „Uns war es wichtig, die Eindrücke der Stadt um eine fiktionale Komponente zu erweitern und ihnen eine literarische Bedeutung zu geben. Deshalb haben wir auf den Spaziergängen versucht, den Autoren ihre Geschichten zu entlocken und die Stadt als Buch zu öffnen.“

“The Mobile City” conference 2008 at Rotterdam

Thursday, 20 December 2007

The Mobile City

“The Mobile City is a conference on locative and mobile media and the city. The conference brings together academics, urban professionals, locative artists, and media designers.

The rise of mobile and locative media like the mobile phone and GPS blur the boundaries between the physical world and the digital world. What does this mean for the city?”

Mediacity International Conference 2008

Saturday, 15 December 2007

MEDIACITY – Situations, Practices and Encounters

Who? Mediacity Project, Bauhaus-Universität Weimar, Germany

When? January 18-19 2008

Where? “Oberlichtsaal” of the main building of the Bauhaus-University Weimar

What? The conference will investigate how the social settings and spaces of the city are created, experienced and practiced through the use and presence of new media. We will take the position that new media enables different settings, practices and behaviours to occur in urban space. These media create opportunities for diverse forms of connections between people and spaces and enable and create flows; of information, of communication and of knowledge.
