Locative Media: Rautatieasema returns

“The deep-local Helsinki culture of mobility, systems and networks 
is manifested at the site of Rautatieasema (Railway Station). With it’s 
interior, exterior, surrounding subterranean public-spaces, it is a 
centrepoint of urban Finland; A cartographic and temporal framework for 
partings, convergences, paths and destinations, all wrapped up in 
objective data and personal story. The tangible, intangible, physical 
and informatic.. The static and mobile..”

The presentation will speak of ways of engaging and documenting the 
site of 'Rautatieasema' at the Locative Media workshops at the 
Pixelache Festival of Electronic Arts and Subcultures in 2004, and 
forthcoming in 2006.

On the workshop occasion of 2004, approximately 20 international media 
and performance artists, activists, archaeologists and researchers 
spent 5 days exploring overlaps in “capture-gathering” methods and 
site-documentations. The reflective work of translating practices into 
spoken word was done in 2005: So raise your voice, and speak for the 
rest of us - “From many practices to a singular voice”

My creative practice involves working in the roles of initiator, 
participant, author and producer, according to/and within different 
collaborative and interdisciplinary projects. These roles operate in 
the field of media/socially-engaged arts, where 'artwork' may be 
understood as a conversation, devised situation, workshop or event. The 
activity specialises in mobile and collaborative interfaces or 
interactions. http://mlab.uiah.fi/~apaterso
