Project Description

Tackling collaborative iniatives, in particular, the social net-worker's ethical, humanitarian and creative challenge re one to many 'for the common good"; U.S.G. neighborhood and leadership subsidies for solar roofs, appliances, e.g.,12 volt refrigerators based on the evolving global Nano revolution, .gov and commerce upgrades.
why
fr/archive I Ask You (v2) http://www.d.umn.edu/~lbrush/I_ask_you_info.html#anchor20654
a pioneering .edu endeavor- seeks unique collaborative global artists-scientists, like-minded and path-searching people- via global, zeroing school newspaper ads; Skype and, as foundation, an epicentral platform from which to eventually segue a World Playing wiki resulting =as orchestral leader of a prototypical Mesh node http://projectmeshnet.org/. As catalyst-teacher re this projection, the expected base goal would be to demonstrate humanitarian values and explore perceptions among one mind and many- in all forms of two-way human interactions.
Who
A predetermined number of contributors - yet to be identified by this process - would coalesce the prototypical neighborhood to neighborhood fluxing of the inherent toward node-construction, which would coalesce and transmit from multiple terrestrial vantages; among its objectives would be to; (a) mirror an unimaginable phenomena re physical and organic aspects of the natural world- in an effort to include eye-ear parity; (while acknowledging the intuitive perceptions of prehistoric people, (b) elucidate intertwined thinking beyond borders and countries, achieving a meticulously new coin from which to formulate international commerce, its corporate stewardship, sponsorship;
What How
includes (wifi/laser) optical aspects http://rhizome.org/portfolios/artwork/31083/ http://rhizome.org/portfolios/artwork/31105/ and vital Nano-"commerce-skelton;" global humanitarian, and feedback-partnerships http://malina.diatrope.com/2012/03/22/new-leonardo-thinks-posting-art-and-the-brain-what-does-the-evidence-tell-us-by-amy-ione/.
Project Timeline and Budget

For the twelve-months, solar and backup batteries will provide dc electrify our project, and we will spread out the work into basic elements per xyz-analog output, giving us time to orient A/V site reception, construction, testing, syncing UTC and GPS positions; trouble shoot all in line modules and any software issues.

Approaching the xyzu project midyear, the conceptualization, node-network, stream flow, major feedback testing, re- the World Playing wiki- will have been achieved: schematic, systematic overviews re conceptive bases, for integral pre-trial prototype; the eventual agreement done so by all participants- after which we will press on toward the eventual stated goal; via .gov, .edu, public domain realtime and canned contextually-synced whole playing.

Note. It will be possible, for overall self-familiarization of this project, and particularly, in the use of solar powered xyz sensors (non-microphonic uses)- re analog monitoring sources prior to eventual digitization, and allowances will be made for replacement a/or upgrade of any Mesh module;

Artist(s) Work Samples

Leif Brush has, for decades, acquired a matching vocabulary whose pace evolved together with his soundworks. Both epicentrally re-radiate those sought after and then found highly amplified signals from an array of audible constructions: sensor-laden terrain instruments. These are conceptually identified as unique catalysts and conduits for recontextualizing Earth's wave and vibration "sound tracks." Particular focus is on analog artifacts from terrestrial and extraterrestrial resources which he hopes can outflow separately but along side traditional out bound aural streams currently available via Internet, cable and digital broadcast. His Internet-2 quest seeks, in realtime, an on call 2-way availability of the overwhelming and perpetual data-laden analog science artifacts which could be Y-connected onto a public Internet "pipe". The flux status he's advocating would continue his ground work for making sounds available "on through invisible boundaries, from specific Latitude and Longitude nodes which would be UTC synced." He's advocating ("using multiple cell phones") that we all could use for audibly sharing through net-constructing a most obvious and missing aural aspect of our being earth guests. It's a special activation of a long term memory niche for "our" vibrations we have in common while riding on "spaceship earth." http://www.d.umn.edu/~lbrush/asensors.html http://www.d.umn.edu/~lbrush/lbarchivesg.html#anchor268788

    Hi Leif!
    Yes, we must set this lecture up. Let me check with schedules /
    possible room etc and get back to you after the semester starts up. I
    like the idea of a skype connection... would that be with Guy? Not
    sure how you imagine that part.
    more later!
