European Citi(zen)s with child's eyes

How do cities and citizens look like in the eyes of a child? What differences are there when described by an adult or a child? What do kids find important in a city? KIBU will show you in an interactive animation.

Action Flocking

keep reading
Action Flocking

Action Flocking is a collective action painting project, where movements of people are visualised into graphics and particle animations projected onto the screen in real time. The project explores and demonstrates collective game and visualisation concepts that are based on tracking user movements via camera and RFID sensing.
The concept includes a variety of game scenarios and visualisation techniques where some can be played between cities. The purpose of the project is to invent new participatory and playful forms to urban events.

The Park

keep reading
The Park

The Park is a video panorama depicting space between the domesticated and the wild, a transmission stage between urban and natural environment. The sports park is an autonomous zone with its own rules: in parks, things beyond the daily habits can be done.
The piece is realised through intricate video techniques combining concrete places and characters in our daily life experience: architecture, people and symbols from a globalised world, Helsinki and Berlin. It plays with the themes of urbanity / periphery, rationality/ irrationality, tourism, sports and ecstasy.

City Sleep Light

keep reading
City Sleep Light

City Sleep Light makes a radical move by transforming a whole building into the sleep light of the city, akin to the sleep light of a computer. All the lights are pulsing together in an organic rhythm, turning the building into a living organism.

Computed from the current global socio-economic activity of the city, the rhythm of pulsation differs each night and changes from one place to another.

For the festival, City Sleep Light will be visible in each city, literally connecting inhabitants through multiple adaptations of the project on the facades.

Johanna Bruckner

Johanna Bruckner was born in Vienna, Austria in 1984; she works and lives in Berlin.
Her participatory installations and videos explore Neturbanism at the gateway between visual cultures and artistic practice and investigate new forms of social mobility in the fields of cyber migration, transient spaces, and inter-communication between spatial cartographies, working at the interface between art, society, urbanism and digital technology. In addition, Bruckner’s new trans-disciplinary work connects biotechnology, experimental architecture and electronic media. Represented by Kuma Galerie Berlin; recent screenings: LOOP Video Art Fair 2010, CCCB Centre Cultura Contemporania Barcelona 2009, Venezia Contemporanea, 2009.

Men in Grey

A public wireless access point would be set up in the area of a media façade so that people can browse, chat and surf on their smartphones, laptops and netbooks. Men in Grey carrying briefcases with integrated laptops and a monitor on the side would suddenly arrive and take control of the network. Acting as network/media routers any traffic using that access point will be passed to the media facade while also appearing on their briefcases.

The Men In Grey Organisation

Men In Grey emerge as a manifestation of Network Anxiety, a fearful apparition in a time of government wiretaps, Facebook spies, Google caches, Internet filters and mandatory ISP logging.

Operating at the intersection of hacking and invasive situationist action, any open wireless network becomes their stage for a reverse-engineering of network dependence and the implicit trust we place in the metal and minds that make itall work.

In the grey suit of an unidentifiable bureaucrat, carrying briefcases filled with hardware and software, the Men In Grey dissect and manipulate wireless network traffic then reflect it back to the public with unsettling results.

Behind the tracks of the underground railstation U6 at Friedrichstraße 12 digital city light boards will be placed. Due to its central location in Berlin and its proximity to attractions such as the Unter den Linden boulevard, the Brandenburg Gate and the Reichstag, the station is a favorite destination for tourists. At the same time, it is the main junction for regional traffic in Berlin, measured by the number of passengers. There will be 6 beamers on each side behind the tracks, which can be watched in the waiting situations. The space between the user and the projection will be 1 to 3 meters approximately.

A European Party

Nika Radic creates a European party which will be celebrated only on the screen: she films one to two party guests of each city and composes them as an ensemble in a party scenario.
In each clip a single person is at first filmed standing or sitting near a wall. The people then get ‘off the wall’ and start moving, talking, or dancing.
The single clips are controlled by a computer programme which allows the visitors to interact and manipulate the party scenario.

Nika Radic

Nika Radic is an artist and works in different media. Her main topic is the limits of possible communication: what is it that we can really understand in everyday communication but also in art. She has done several works that used facades and walls in public space that opened the wall into an imaginary space beyond.
This allowed the viewers to 'peep' into the building and see something that is going on inside… even if it was only an illusion.

Interactive concept and development: Yacine Sebti (BE)
