An interactive, online artwork that gathers live pollutant levels from Auckland City air. The collaborative project includes urban meteorologists, programmers, media artists and breathers of air as a continuous feedback mechanism. Sensor instruments in Auckland, New Zealand provide a platform for continuously accessible, real-time information about city air quality.
The Cyberformance symposium, or CyPosium, will take place on Friday 12 October, 2012, and invites artists, researchers and interested participants to share and discuss past online performances. The CyPosium aims to tackle questions about the different kinds of events that have happened, what was unique about these particular events, what they made possible, why they were done in a certain way, and the results of these decisions.
The Netwalking Tour, a series of master classes and workshops with Simon Pope, will take place April 2013. The ADA Network will host public workshops in Auckland, Christchurch and Wellington that will draw upon Pope’s recent work that has taken the form of walking-as-art. The workshops will explore an expanded notion of dialogue and negotiation.
