The N3krozoft media collective has the pleasure to invite you to the 
BABEL PROJECT, a workshop which is going to take place in Bucharest 
from 30th of may to 2nd of june, in the frame of the Bucharest 
Biennale 2006.

This workshop, which will be held during four days, represents the 
first implementation of the Babel Project, a multi-disciplinary 
research program focussed on emotional representation of the 
cityscape and subsequent narrative threads, such as the dynamics of 
urban legends, techniques of espionnage or subterranean architecture.

The participants will experiment with various methods ranging from 
storytelling to electronic imagery and mapping, in order to establish 
a tactical psychogeographic map of Bucharest. The collaborative 
outcome of the workshop will be presented to the public in the form 
of an audio-visual performance.


The workshop is open to everyone and free of charge. No specific 
technical skills are required.

Participants are asked to fill out the registration form that can be 
downloaded at http://babel.n3krozoft.com . It can be sent back to the 
e-mail adress babel.registration at n3krozoft.com or brought to the 
opening conference held on May 29, 19:00, at TestPoint (Str. 11 Iunie 
nr. 50, Bucharest).

The workshop team consists in Deirdre Foster (story-teller & 
actress), Boris Kish (psychogeographer) and Manuel Schmalstieg 
(digital artist).

The workshop will be documented on the n3krozoft website.
