Hello all,
Itıs my first posting on this list, which I joined during the locative media
Œseasonı ;-) 
I thought the performance below might be interesting in the context of this
list, as it crosses borders between notions of dance, media installation,
urban mapping, literature ... You tell us!
Thereıs still a few places on Friday, 13th, hope to see you there,
Best
manu

Once upon a time, in the kingdom of Myriorama, there ruled a king who knew
the art of reading and bending the thoughts of his people over great
distances, which rendered him famously powerful. One day, a wanderer entered
the kingdom... 

Taking a hint from Italo Calvino's story 'A King Listens', Myriorama unfolds
the world of one whose environment is all ears and all eyes; one for whom
every whisper and rumour is heard distinctly, for whom every movement is
watched and logged.

Today, equipment designed for a paranoid king has become the plaything of
the people, part of our everyday gadgetry and woven in the fabric of the
city. 

For this production, ambientTV.NET and kondition pluriel have repurposed
location-aware mobile devices, motion sensors and audio-visual transmissions
to fashion a responsive performance space that both extends beyond, and is
concentrated in the venue itself.

The protagonist at the centre of Myriorama tracks his subjects, agents and
avatars as they move through the city. The one in the place of the king
watches, commands and interprets a mediated world, a domain of data, a
screen of projected subjectivities in which inside and outside are entwined.

ŒWe have demonstrated the ability to selectively deny GPS signals on a
regional basis, particularly when our national security is threatened.ı (Lt.
Jeremy Eggers, 50th Space Wing, Schriever AFB, Colorado)

Myriorama explores position- and motion-tracking at widely different scales:
across the city, and inside the venue. The wandererıs location in the city
is reported by satellite-based Global Positioning System (GPS), and fed into
the venueıs local network via a cellphone network (GPRS) and the internet.
Inside, the data are manipulated and transformed in real time by the
dancer's gestures, using a wireless sensor system.
The emergence of cellphones, GPS, and other location-aware devices seems to
favour the local and contextual over the global. However, most of the
communication networks that these devices operate in remain centralised and
closed.
The widespread availability of accurate position data has triggered a wave
of media art and activist works focused on novel cartography; many of these
are process-based or involve public participation. The term locative media
encompasses all such works that use position-fixing mobile technologies.
Some works are being appropriated by the Œcreative industriesı, especially
gaming. But locative media, as informed, for example, by the Situationist
International, can also be a locus of resistance.

A range of cross-disciplinary practices and interests converge in the
collaboration between ambientTV.NET and kondition pluriel. For London-based
ambientTV.NET (artistic directors: Manu Luksch and Mukul Patel), the
techniques and effects of data transmission provide theme, medium, and
performative space for projects spanning installation and performance,
through documentary, dance, and gastronomy, to real-time  sound and video
composition. kondition pluriel was formed in 2000 in Montreal out of the
collaboration between dancer-choreographer Marie-Claude Poulin and
media-artist Martin Kusch. Their contemporary dance pieces, performative
installations and responsive environments explore the possibilities of
interaction and transformation between the physical environment and gesture
and the electronically mediated re-presentations of movement and space. Both
companies highlight models of networked and collaborative practice.
