Camera Explora will soon be going to Berlin to take part in the Tracing Mobility exhibition at Haus De Kulturen De Welt from the 24th November to the 12th December 2011.
The exhibition will showcase about 20 works around the theme of cartography and migration in networked space.
Mobility has become one of the most important keywords in the discourse on globalisation, techno-economic change or the Information Society. The idea of nomadic, ‘mobile’ persons supported by spatial mobilisation of capital, goods and knowledge pervades politics and economics, technology and science, advertising and media, commerce and culture. The Tracing Mobility exhibition and symposium present a snapshot of the dynamic topography of this constant being-in-motion.
The prototypes have changed a lot since their last outing in Nottingham. I’m still working with Sam and we’ve managed to solve pretty much all of the hardware and software bugs (we’re working on the rest!), so hopefully the experience should run much more as intended. This means that we should be able to start getting some more useful feedback from people about how the technology influences their exploration and perception of the city. I’ll do a write-up about this after the event, as well as more detail about the prototypes.
It’s going to be really exciting to see people using them in a city i’m unfamiliar with – I’ve only ever seen it or tried it out in cities where I live, so hopefully I might even get to have a go myself!
Anyway, if you’re in Berlin any time between the 24th November and the 12th December, come along and say hi.
