Augmented Space: Media Art for an Urban Environment
Tuesday, November 25, 2003, 7-9pm
What is electronically augmented space? What are its cultural applications? What are its poetics and aesthetics? Digital artist and architect Marek Walczak, sound artist Ben Rubin, and computer scientist Steven Feiner discuss an old conceptual problem in a new context: how to combine, juxtapose, and overlay various layers of data onto physical space. From large scale interactive buildings at the new World Trade Center that track and reflect pedestrian movement on the sidewalk, to digital soundscapes that gurgle up from underneath Battery Park City's new Teardrop Park, Rubin, Walcazk and Feiner discuss the challenges of conceptualizing, designing, and implementing new media for an urban environment.

Motion Studies is made possible, in part, with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, and the Electronic Media and Film Program of the New York State Council on the Arts, a state agency.
