[AT EASTERN BLOC]
Fonderie Darling is pleased to present a workshop offered by Domajo Smoljo from !Meddiengruppe Bitnik, an artist duo formed with Carmen Weisskopf participating in the current group exhibition Feedback #6: Marshall McLuhan and the Arts.
In the context of the exhibition Feedback #6: Marshall McLuhan and the Arts, !Mediengruppe Bitnik offers a research and creation session. The workshop participants are invited to work with five mini GPS trackers that will be integrated into the urban landscape in order to question the technical social networks and infrastructure with which this tool allows us to interact. The use of the five mini GPS trackers as tactical tools allows us to explore the hidden or unmapped networks of the city, such as service networks, supply chains, transportation routes, or waste management systems.
The convergence of global networks, online databases, and new mobile mapping tools is rekindling artists' interest in mapping as an art form. Mediengruppe Bitnik uses digital mapping tools to create works based on data flow geographies, enabling new ways of reading the world.
The maximum capacity for this event is 20 participants and is conducted in groups of 4 people. People wishing to take part in the activity can register as a group or individually. No special skills are required. It is recommended that you bring a laptop or mobile device to enable research during the event.
