IN[ ]EX is a distributed audio sculpture in which thousands of wooden blocks with embedded technology are released into the city to engage the public as active agents.

As the blocks circulate, they transmit data which is collected by mesh networks and processed to create a constantly remixed sound environment in a shipping container.

IN[ ]EX explores the migration of capital, goods, and people through the ports and public spaces of Vancouver, Canada, and San Jose, California.
IN[ ]EX launched at Centre A (Vancouver International Centre for Contemporary Asian Art) on June 16, 2006 and on August 7, 2006 IN[ ]EX will hit San Jose, California during ISEA 2006.

::::::::::::::::Where?::::::::::::::::::::::::::

The IN[ ]EX shipping container, where you can hear the soundscape created by the movements of people through the city of San Jose, will be on location at South Hall (435 South Market Street).

:::::::::On the fly : Keep a lookout for blocks in the city :::::::::

IN[ ]EX is a collaborative project by Kate Armstrong, Bobbi Kozinuk, M. SImon Levin, Laurie Long, Leonard J. Paul, Manuel Pina, and Jean Routhier. Curator: Alice Ming Wai Jim.
