Challenging Space in the Era of Google Maps

Challenging Space in the Era of Google Maps The 6 hour workshop will present practical, participatory and theoretical examples of the way that the use of advanced location based technologies in cities has given rise to an emergent form of physical terrain that we can call hybrid space. Trampoline’s Mat Trivett will introduce ‘Fusing Frames’, a location based story mapping project in Nottingham, England while Canadian artist Michelle Teran will move from examples of her own practice to exploring the hybrid space of Skopje, taking participants on an exploration of the city (via the internet and via a city walk) in a hunt for local broadcasts tracked via YouTube and Google Map. Finding them, mapping them, understanding the narrative - Michelle and Trampoline’s Mat Trivett will weave together a new mesh of ideas from the threads connecting hybrid spaces. The participants are invited to bring their digital devices.;

Goal of the laboratory is strengthening the “web” interactions between local Institutions and University, already working, to realize research and experimentation on the fields of poetry languages, performing arts, writing, music, dance, and theatre. To realize the project a working team has been organized by a strict selection. The members have settled plans and constructed hand made goods, using the traditional techniques of “old” performing arts and the “new” ones suggested by the contemporary research.
