Broken City Lab - Drift

“Drift will offer you a random series of creative cues to guide you on your own “psychogeographic walk” through the city. Maybe it’ll ask you to head two blocks to the west, then look for a crack in the sidewalk, then head in the opposite direction until you stumble across something terrible.
The app invites you to photograph your findings – something “undervalued,” something “warm,” something “out of the ordinary” – to upload into a group photostream that Broken City Lab plans to curate on its website. The directions are all meant to be broadly interpreted (“Find an exchange”? This may mean to one person an exchange of glances on the sidewalk, or to another an exchange of cash at a hot-dog stand.)

All of these idiosyncratic directions won’t literally make you “lost.” Drift is trying to use that word playfully….”

!Mediengruppe Bitnik - Surveillance Chess 2012

Equipped with an interfering transmitter !Mediengruppe Bitnik hacks surveillance cameras in pre-Olympic London and assumes control. The artist collective replaces real-time surveillance images with an invitation to play a game of chess. The security staff’s surveillance monitor located in the control room becomes a game console.

London. On the brink of the Olympic Games. A tube station in one of the most surveilled public spaces in the world. !Mediengruppe Bitnik intercepts the signal of a surveillance camera: Business people making their way to the Underground, a man in a suit looking for the right exit. From the left, a woman with a yellow suitcase walks into the frame of the surveillance camera. She opens her suitcase and activates a switch. This is the moment when Bitnik takes over.

European Souvenirs | Remixing media crossing (shifting) borders

European Souvenirs: a live cinema performance, remixing old and shaping new European memories

Five young media-makers have been delving into audiovisual materials from leading European archives to create European Souvenirs – a live cinema performance that will premiere on 6 October 2012 in Amsterdam.
European Souvenirs takes us on a trip through time and history, combining different cultural expressions as well as disciplines (music, animation, video art, dramaturgy, photography and film). Travel and migrants, nomads, tourists and souvenirs are the guiding elements that shape their journey.
Selected because of their outstanding experimental artistic profiles, the European Souvenirs artistic team – Karol Rakowski (PL), Barış Gürsel (TR), Farah Rahman (NL), Malaventura (ES) and Noriko Okaku (UK/JP) – have set about remixing culture and contributing to a new vision of Europe that is completely different from representations found in the mainstream media.

Benedikt Groß: Social Computing – Crime Sounds App

Crime Sounds gives you a sense of crime around your current location by enhancing your hearing with a cinematic “soundscape”. Or, to put it in other words, Crime Sounds is literally a Sonification of the crime database published by the UK Police forces for England and Wales.

David Tinapple and Collaborators - Shock (2007)

Interactive video. To start the video playing, the viewer must press a button. Pressing this button causes an electrical shock in the hand, but in return the viewer sees the video of the previous person being shocked. To my surprise, over 300 people interacted with this piece on opening night.
