Description of idea

Describe your idea and concept of your work in relation to the festival outlines:

Phtz is actively energized with open source software and social interaction, trans-cultural event space collaboration would inspire technical resource development of a multi-disciplined 'media facade' installation and architectural 'media facade' research. Also facilitating a connected cities agenda.An on the 'fly' look at society returns intimate transients of networked societies that database on social change, adaption, evolution in digital societies. The focus is on access to open source media and public as agents of social communicative dialogue. The aim to re-evaluate social space and identity exploring open source 'we think' agency of extended social network community. (wwwconnectedcities.net, a 4 year EU funded symposium on public social media projection, in association with www.media-lab.prado.es, who I have collaborated with).

What kind of communication approach do you use?

Photos taken using a cell phone camera. Quick snaps; reportage. Taken of people in 'public' spaces (with their consent), people that in the photographers opinion look 'comfortable' - that is they are 'comfortable' with themselves - a comfort zone between the photographer and the subject. Photos are uploaded via the project website, flickr and interactive screen. Uploads are immediate via flickr and a mobile phone widget (bluetooth) on the project website. The project is active as a Net Art , gallery and web structure and event space gallery projections are in the process of application solicitation.

Depending on the screening selected, the photos can display as animated panes (windows, see sketch) that update as photos are uploaded onto the flickr/ project website, or the photos display on the wall screen as a random photo cloud (Bluetooth) - the images replenished randomly on a loop. The interactive screen uploads photos immediately point and shoot at the screen!

Priority to photos uploaded within the vicinity of the event emphasizes the folds of the space where the audience can (perhaps) see their own photos displayed while contemplating the events dialogues interactions unfolding.

LED panels animated stills (6 pane window frame) from flickr Phtzone gallery (see diag phtzpg1). Photos replenish as photos are uploaded. Details of phtz display on screen.

The event space is a dynamic folding space with infinite ‘product’ possibilities (Deleuzian space), in an architectural context ,

“The fold is the general topology of thought... ‘inside’ space is topologically in contact with the ‘outside’ space... and brings the two into confrontation at the limit of the living present."

(1.Deleuze, Gilles. Foucault. University of Minnesota Press, 2000 p. 118-19 )

communicative space open to transitory art and transitions to digital media, generating fresh perspectives and analysis; the panes are intimate frames, the installation folds events in an evolving continuum.

What are in your opinion concrete benefits to the society because of your communication?

A communicative space open to transitory art and transitions to digital media, generating fresh perspectives and analysis; the panes are intimate frames, the installation folds events in an evolving continuum.Multiple site events entice the audience into imaginative, participatory choices, perceptions are changed and influenced including socio and geo-political; creative feedback stimulates audiences to participate.
