> 14th to 17th of November 2008 - Sao Paulo, Brazil
> A10LAB & SCIE PROTOCOL are invited to the MobilFest III
> Conference on CYBORGORGANISM:::::OPEN CITIES
> & ELECTROMAGNETIC SPECTRUM RESEARCH - performance by THE NOISER
> ?The Farther we emerge from the inner city, the more political the
> atmosphere becomes. We reach the docks, the inland harbors, the
> warehouses, the poor neighborhoods, the scattered refuges of
> wretchedness: the outskirts. Outskirts are the state of emergency of a
> city, the terrain on which incessantly rages the great decisive battle
> between town and country. It is nowhere more bitter between Marseilles
> and the provençal landscape. It is the hand-to-hand fight telegraph
> poles against agaves, barbed wire against thorny palms, the miasmas of
> stinking corridors against the damp gloom under the plane trees in
> brooding squares, short-winded outside staircases against the mighty
> hills. The long rue de Lyon is the powder conduit which Marseilles has
> dug in the landscape so that in Saint-Lazare, Saint-Antoine, Arenc,
> Septèmes it can blow up this terrain, burying it in the shrapnel of
> every national and commercial language. Alimentation, Moderne, rue de
> Jamaïque, Comptoir de la Limite, Savon Abat-Jour, Minoterie de la
> campagne, Bar du Gaz, Bar Falcutatif - and over all this lies the dust
> that here conglomerates out of sea salt, chalk, and mica, and whose
> bitterness persists longer in the mouths of those who have pitted
> themselves against the city than the splendor of sun and sea in the
> eyes of its admirers.? Walter Benjamin ?Marseilles - The Return of the
> Flâneur, 1929?
> Using ?The City?, as a cyborg organism, driven by the interchangeable
> machinery of flesh and concrete in equal measure, steered by progress
> and technology into previously unreachable dimensions, Open Scripts
> will attempt to amplify the permutations of the city's interior
> reactions to its shifting techno-meaderthalls or human glitches in its
> well oiled machine.
> Participants will be asked to embark on the journey of a modern day
> flaneur as they navigate, observe and impose on the city. These
> observations, inflections and/or interruptions caused to the natural
> ebb and flow of the city's are to be transmitted across the city from
> a plurality of points. A live mix from these data streams will be
> returned to each derive/flaneur and simultaneously broadcast across
> the net, both producing and reproducing the city and its flesh.
> Equipped with mobile phones, the participants can team up to create
> and organize their own derive - their desired path into the belly of
> this city. During these expeditions into the city's inertia, our
> techno-meaderthalls would connect to the pulsating brain of our server
> - the grey matter of this operation - with its nervous system of
> mobile phones stimulating its neurons with sensory data - voices,
> chattering, street sounds, text messages/poetics, videos and images.
> Information which has designs on the attention of our ?deriver? will
> be collected, manipulated, transformed , reproduced and broadcast.
> This information may be a description of a situation, place or sound
> that the participants capture, record or produce and may take the form
> of a discussion or interview just as easily as being that of an image
> or text.
> Meanwhile, the server, our automated system, will collect the data
> received from our Derivers and transform this into an audio- visual
> composition of the city through processes akin to that of Burrows'
> cuts-up, the digital design of this neural stem will be both
> controlled by the participants and/or online users. This automaton
> will broadcast the data stream over web-radio. By allowing the
> possibility for anyone to access and to manipulate the data input by
> our techno-meaderthalls (text, photos, videos?etc) the city will
> multiply and transform inside-out, outside-in, both virtually and
> through its physical embodiment!
> As a perpetual mirroring of the machine and its participants, a
> psycho-geographical mind-mapping is created through the flux of
> desired data yielded from the city, in order to produce, reproduce and
> reflect a new vision of the city, viewed via the techno-meaderthall's
> own path, journey, derive, performance, action and interpretations. A
> techno-pirate's geographical disassemblage, a dissemination of
> interconnected points of views that are all the time crossing over
> with each other and with themselves. Each path begins from the
> singular, but become multiplied through the potential of
> reinterpretation as driven by the machine and/or other derivers. Their
> ubiquitous presence, catching the real without closing it, opening
> nodes of bilateral trans-communication, the ?deriver? swims in the
> streets of his own memory and the memory of his fellow city derivers.
> Marching to a different beat, The Scie Protocol builds a continuity in
> the cycles (derive / performance / live stream / archives /
> interaction) of the city. The workshop is constructed by the exchanges
> made with individuals or groups desiring lines through the city - maps
> are to be re-interpreted, re-played whilst the machine will
> continuously accumulates, archives and processes information given or
> sent by the participants - this data is then re-injected into the
> next, new collation of the following day - thus, the past is visibly
> and sonically returned to the present to create the future.
