SENSING PLACE / PLACING SENSE
LABORATORIA Art&Science Space, 3 Obukha per.
Dietmar OFFENHUBER - artist and MIT researcher, member of Senseable City Lab at MIT (Austria / USA).
Dietmar will discuss topics of urban sensing and actuation in the context of his work in the Senseable City Lab and such projects as Trash | Track and Forager, mapping the movement of global waste streams using real-time technologies with aim to understand and improve contemporary cities. A common theme in these projects is how to make sense of ambiguous settings and situations that appear at first messy and chaotic. This tension between structure and ambiguity is also characteristic for the art projects of Decker, Offenhuber and Telhan, one of which is presented in LABORATORIA under the name "Dust Serenade".
In a framework of the DUST project.
