Locative Media: Rautatieasema returns
"The deep-local Helsinki culture of mobility, systems and networks is manifested at the site of Rautatieasema (Railway Station). With it's interior, exterior, surrounding subterranean public-spaces, it is a centrepoint of urban Finland; A cartographic and temporal framework for partings, convergences, paths and destinations, all wrapped up in objective data and personal story. The tangible, intangible, physical and informatic.. The static and mobile.."

The presentation will speak of ways of engaging and documenting the site of 'Rautatieasema' at the Locative Media workshops at the Pixelache Festival of Electronic Arts and Subcultures in 2004, and forthcoming in 2006.

Sonic Tags

October 10-14, 2005
several locations

As an offshoot of the Re:Activism conference, Sonic Tags workshop aims to do a bit of city-programming, filling dedicated parts of Budapest with unusual sounds, words, atmospheres, through creating event triggered, localized broadcasts of poetic instances.

The one-week workshop is planned to embrace both
- hands on prototyping of simple broadcast technologies, as well as
- developing the poetics of micro-broadcasts,
- defining and recording event triggered messages, ending with the results broadcasted over special parts of the city.

It is a cooperation between conference organiser MOKK, community radio Tilos and Nextlab with active artists, poets, architects, creative technologists and DJ's.

Lecture by Usman Haque

May 7, 2005, 15:00-17:00
Műcsarnok (Kunsthalle Budapest)

From haque.co.uk:
The domain of architecture has been transformed by developments in interaction research, wearable computing, mobile connectivity, people-centered design, contextual awareness, RFID systems and ubiquitous computing. These technologies alter our understanding of space and change the way we relate to each other. We no longer think of architecture as static and immutable; instead we see it as dynamic, responsive and conversant. Our projects explore some of this territory.

...Sky Ear is a non-rigid carbon-fibre "cloud", embedded with one thousand glowing helium balloons and several dozen mobile phones. The balloons contain miniature sensor circuits that respond to electromagnetic fields, particularly those of mobile phones. When activated, the sensor circuits co-ordinate to cause ultra-bright coloured LEDs to illuminate. The 30m cloud glows and flickers brightly as it floats across the sky.

Digital signal processing and sensor analysis using Max/Msp/Jitter

April 27, 2005, 14:00-16:00
Kultiplex
1092 Budapest, Kinizsi utca 28.

Max/MSP is a graphical programming environment, in which you create your own software using a visual toolkit of objects, and connect them together with patch cords. The basic environment that includes control, user interface and timing objects is called Max. Built on top of Max are hundreds of objects, that do a variety of rad stuff, including Jitter.

Jitter is a set of video, matrix, and 3D graphics objects for the Max graphical programming environment. Jitter is useful to anyone interested in real-time video processing, custom effects, 2D/3D graphics, audio/visual interaction, data visualization, and analysis.
