Live Stage: Investigating Satellites [es Gijón]

satelites.jpgFrom the 10th to the 14th of May 2011 the Plataforma Cero of LABoral welcomes an international meeting to critically and artistically investigate satellites, that fundamental, often occult, sign of our times :: Los Prados, 12133394 Gijón (Asturias), Spain :: Phone: +34 985 185 577

▪ Politics and Poetics of satélites. MSST, Joanna Griffin, Reni Hoffmuller ….
▪ de/Construction of a satélite. David Pello.
▪ Listening, Spotting y Sousveillance. Alejo Duque.

“Galileo collapsed Geocentricity but this has been reconstructed through the unstoppable and insatiable ambition for connectivity that is today represented by the ring of artifical geostationary satellites. The Earth thus re-becomes an immobile object in the middle of a spinning “universe”.” Mathurin Milan

Orbitando Satélites proposes an exercise in the visibilisation and investigation of these “rarae aves” that operate in habitually imperceptible frequencies and distances. We listen to them with DIY antenas and radios, showing how to locate them and observe them with free hardware and software.

In the tradition of the independent groups involved in the creation of free/libre infrastructures the meeting unites amateurs and experts, from various countries and cultures, to develop a declaration which poetically sketches this occult ring that surrounds us.

Trying to invert the logic of the panopticum, we observe the satelites that are observing us, exploring their political dimensions as an opaque system of control as well as a potentially liberating force. Using visualisation and play techniques we investigate the poetics of satelites, developing new astrologies and detailled mythologies.

And, finally, we design our own communications / observation satelite, to be launched in July 2011 by balloon, around the same time as the inauguration which will visualise our investigation.

Some key themes and topics :

▪ Satélites and micro-satélites.
▪ Dispositives of power y contra-power.
Listening to satélites. Satellite Hacking,
▪ The Astrology and Astronomy of satélites
Celestial voices, Satelite soundart
▪ Design of open source satelite with radio & wimax
▪ Estratoferic baloons, Drones and Kites
▪ Arduino in space.
▪ Space politics.
▪ Satélite Tracking and Radiofrequencies
GNU/Radio USRP Software Defined Radio
▪ Calculating & charting celestial mechanics
▪ Orbital Dreams
▪ ……

Deadline for applications : 18.04.11. Attendance is free, space limited. Email to p0[at]laboralcentrodearte.org a CV and letter stating your interest.
