Annotated Reality/ Real Space in Virtual Time - Art Installation

Using bluetooth server software i would like to invigorate the location of the conference by creating a electronic media work which draws on the historical and current significance of the site.

The work would use bluetooth to download images, sounds and short video to participants phones and BT devices which create sometimes poetic and sometimes literal association to the space visited.

In effect the alternative or historical scene would overlay over the current perception of the place, creating a sort of double image or composite view of the place the visitor find herself or himself.

I have created such projects in the city of San Francisco using public telephones and see this even as a the ideal venue to present the next generation of annotated reality.

Artist and educator using media to create temporary public monuments.

Much of my work is concerned with temporality, perceptions of history, place, identity and the value of life. The desire to communicate or connect with people or other creatures in spite of physical and cultural limitations is an area we are always investigating.

My past installations are mixed-media and often combine traditional and electronic media. In 1996, I received a National Endowment for the Arts Grant for experimental art (the last of its kind). One of our first projects together was the outcome of a Summer Sound Residency at The Lab in San Francisco, California, USA, from which I expanded my interest to incorporate sound into my work

I am interested in the use of telecommunications technology for art and have ventured to create art work that uses telephones, voicemail systems and more recently, Web-based and blue tooth projects. My art projects for the phone and the Web are ideally suited for exploring issues about public vs. private space and interactivity. Two articles about my work and the artistic potential of the telephone have been published in Leonardo, issue 31:4, 1998 and another in Public Culture, 10:3, 1998, respectively.
