Medialab-Prado issues a call to participate in the Second Inclusiva-net Meeting: Digital Networks and Physical Space, directed by Juan Martín Prada, that will take place from 3 to 14 March 2008.
The purpose of this open participation meeting is to explore the relationship between digital networks and physical space: how new locative technologies are changing the way citizens perceive the physical and geographic space (cellphones, Google Earth, GPS…) and how these media are reorganizing civic communication and interaction (from “geobrowsers” to the Local Web 2.0 or the “hyperlocal” journalism).
The aim is to explore hoy we “tag the world” with new devices and how the digital and the physical world interact, creating new artistic tendencies as well as new kinds of human relations.
Through and open call, projects to be collaboratively developed during a production workshop and papers to be publicly presented will be selected.
Submission Deadline: 30th January 2008
Notification of Acceptance: 8th February 2008
