Ars Electronica Garden Vienna

Urban Auscultation

Aleyda Rocha (MX/ AT), Eveline Wandl-Vogt (AT), Mojdeh Siyadat (IR/ AT)

| | |

In a group of ten-fifteen people maximum (adjusting to covid rules), we will go on a walk at the surroundings of Ars Electronica; guided by a leader that will give instructions on the data collections to make; take careful notes about what happens and produce a series of experimental inventories or archives and a final cosmogram. Each spot introduces approaches to accounting data in the city realm: from public memory, metaphors, senses, and ecologies, and ways to bridge our inter/dependences with our environment. Accompanied by our urban sketcher we are documenting visually.

Spot 1 – Collect examples of “algorithm” histories.
Spot 2 – Collect examples of “data” uncertainties.
Spot 3 – Collect examples of “data” extraction.
Spot 4 – Collect examples of the olfactory/ tactile/ sonic dimensions
Make an inventory / Dealing with an archive
Create a “cosmogram” mapping out the different elements involved.
