1:1 Track, by Anna Scott & Brenda Cleniuk, is a performative research project in locative media. The project is process-based and open to audience interaction and will be realized in two parts; the second of which will take place in the spring of 2006. The work takes as its starting point, the geospatial architecture of the Hotel Vancouver as tracked by the global positioning system (GPS) in an attempt to uncover meaningful coincidences in the relationship between technology and the supernatural. The artists invite interested persons to join them in a demonstration of their protoscientific methodologies in obtaining data. Embarking on a walk through Greater Vancouver, the artists respond to spikes in the GPS readings allowing haptic or random visual clues to navigate and determine their movements throughout the City. Peripatetic walks will commence Friday November 18 at 11:00 am and Saturday November 19, at 11:00 am and 3:00 pm starting outside the main entrance of the Hotel Vancouver on Georgia Street.
Walks are from 1 - 2 hours in length and may involve short boat trips or excursions to public parks and other landscapes. Special Media Consultant: Jen Hamilton.
