[-empyre-] September on -empyre-: Locative City

Dear -empyreans-

September on -empyre-: Locative City  ... Starts Sept 1/2 ...

-empyre- joins city stories to locative media and narrative archaeology in

Using locative media  to "read" a space with gps and wireless technology.
artists Jeremy Hight, Jeff Knowlton and Naomi Spellman (US)  dig into deep
city spaces.  Marking narrative triggers through locative media, they draw
many lines --from archaeology, fiction, architecture, and design --into the
urban terrain. 


Their new  locative media artwork "34 north 118 west" uses gps data and
interactive map that triggers live data through movement in downtown LA and
has, in 2004, won the the grand jury prize award, AIM V/ Art in Motion
Festival in Los Angeles <http://www.usc.edu/dept/matrix/aim/aimv/>
Collaborative artworks have also shown at LA Freewaves, Futuresonic, and
online at <http://www.mediatopia.net/>

Naomi and Jeff will debut a new GPS based 'interpretive engine' next month
at Spectropolis: Mobile Media, Art and the City, In New York City
