Seminars, Installations, Performances...

:: SPECIES OF SPACES, mukul @ CEPT School of Architecture, AHMEDABAD (IN) 22nd July-7th August, 2006 :: Seminar at the School of Architecture, CEPT, Ahmedabad, India. Mukul leads 32 hrs of exploration for the students and faculty on art, politics, and technology as refracted through concepts (and metaphors) of space. Some areas of focus are the potentials of, and restrictions laid upon, digital networked space; the circumscribing of public space in urban zones; mediaspace (including pervasive/locative media and tactical approaches); activism and dissent; art outside the gallery walls; the body and movement; and acoustic space. A lab component explores systems- and process-based approaches to sound in space from the 1960s. The seminar is now over and student works will be documented online.

:: AMBIENT.LOUNGE, ambientTV.NET @ NTT InterCommunicationCenter, TOKYO (J) from 15th September 2006 :: ambient.lounge: The exhibition 'Connecting Worlds' marks the reopening of the NTT ICC in Tokyo. ambientTV.NET creates the ambient.lounge as a space to browse works, relax, connect, reflect, dream, and snack on wild pixels and grains of sound. As well as showcasing our own work, we have invited guest artist Juha Huuskonen to present The Moment of Long Now.

We created an ambient.lounge as part of our VBI (Voluptuously Blinking Eye) lab at this year's Rotterdam Film Festival. A short video documenting VBI (and featuring Lektrolab, irational.org, Rachel Baker, Tina Hage and Juha Huuskonen) is now online in the download section.
