Detailled description and Registration Form on
An "Internet-of-Things" is under construction with technologies for
unique digital identification (RFID), geolocation (GPS), embedded
computing (ubiquitous or pervasive computing) and mobile networking
(e.g. wifi, wimax, umts/3g). Places and objects become linked to
digital media which can be everywhere people are.
Our digital life and social interactions are going to happen through
tangible augmented objects and our physical environment will become
the playground of new social and artistic behaviors, interventions,
actions both in data and media spaces.
"New Brave World" proposes 4 workshops exploring the roles of
artists, designers, media makers and creative scientists/developers
in this context of the merge of digital and physical spaces.
