/// SATELLITE VOYEURISM
Hartware MedienKunstVerein at PHOENIX Halle Dortmund, Germany
Workshop Call, July 20 - 22, 2007
The Workshop “Satellite Voyeurism" addresses
questions of production and reception of
satellite images. In addition to public lectures
by international media artists, committed
scientists and commercial companies'
representatives of the regions' geo-data
industry, a two day workshop program with up to
12 participants takes place. Within the hands-on
part the participants learn how to use a simple
antenna, computer, soundcard combination to
retrieve satellite images of NOAA satellites, and
share own ideas and projects with the other
participants. Both lectures and workshop discuss
the image quality of satellite images but of
course the subject will also touch upon the field
of locative media, as GPS, GIS.
Through the workshop the basis for a publication
shall be created, which includes documentation
about recent media art projects in the field of
mapping, satellite images and satellite technology.
The workshop is open to 12 participants.
Participants will get free accommodation and
depending on the distance we can partly support
the travel costs. There is no workshop fee. With
the participation in the workshop the
participants agree to actively support the
production of a documentation (deadline for texts October 15).
In order to apply for the workshop, please let us
know, why would you like to like to participate,
what's your field of interest, and what exactly
you would present to the other participants.
Please also send a short CV. All material to info at hmkv.de.

/// About Hartware MedienKunstVerein, Dortmund
HMKV serves as a platform for the production,
presentation, education on and contextualisation
of contemporary and experimental media art. The
activities of HMKV deal, in different formats,
with the theme “Augmented Space": in exhibitions,
workshops, performances, symposia, publications,
Internet applications and in European research
projects. The success of last year's “How I
learned to love RFID" workshop at HMKV (conceived
by Francis Hunger) and the emergence of popular
geographic mapping tools led to the development
of the “Satellite Voyeurism" workshop in 2007, directed by Francis Hunger.
