REINVENTING THE WHEEL

ART. TRAFFIC. MOBILITY
Artists in residency. Artist talks. Presentation
6th-19th of december 2007, at *.artlabs // CT3

see also: http://rtlbs.blogspot.com

Reinventing the Wheel will be a two week long artist in residency program during December. A public exhibition of the works accompanied by a program of events will occur on 15 December. Five or six artists will be asked to develop projects in reaction to the traffic in Sibiu, and the constant movement of cars and trucks through the urban landscape that is both a benefit and burden for the city and its inhabitants. Traffic entering Sibiu's old town has been successfully regulated, and an infrastructure of one way and restricted streets has slowed down cars and minimized use of the roads. The system within the newer town, however, has not changed and it continues to be an overbearing aspect of the urban fabric.

HIGHFIVE! is a collaborative workshop, connecting participants in Forres, Scotland and Sibiu, Romania for a two-day exploration of conveying emotion and physicality in celebration over a distance. How can you uncover and communicate subtle layers of joy, pressure, relief, and thrill? How can you share experiences, annoyances, and successes as a member of a team? We will move beyond boring, 2-dimensional, computer screen-based interfaces to develop physical interfaces, networked between Romania and Scotland.

Participants will be provided kits of specially-selected, cutting-edge microcontrollers, Bluetooth modules, sensors, and actuators and use them to develop unique ways to bridge the 2267 km (1408 mi) between the geographically-separated workshop spaces. This is quintessentially collaborative work; participants will develop concepts and build objects whose local inputs connect to remote outputs. When someone interacts with an object in Sibiu, an object in Forres will come to life, and vice versa.

Participants are expected to have a basic knowledge of electronics and should be eager to realise prototypes of next-generation interfaces. The workshop is free of charge! Kit components will be available to order after the workshop - price to be determined.
