Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th of April 2007
Cost: 150 euro / 100 euro, including lunch and workshop materials.
Maximum participants: 20
The Hive @ Soft(n) workshop is aimed at people 
with visualiation skills, programming skills in 
Flash, PD, and/or MAX/MSP and general creative 
people with an interest in locative media and reporting skills.
During the workshop, participants will create a 
locative media game in which data interpretation, 
selection, broadcasting and visualisation of 
collected content is determined by affection. In 
order to do so, participants will integrate the 
wireless network of ‘soft objects’ from the 
Soft(n) installation and the wireless network of 
Hivewares from the Hivenetworks project and will 
develop the visualisation application to realise 
the game. The data selected while developing, 
testing, and playing the game will be broadcast 
throughout the festival, and on the Internet.

Workshop Leaders:
Hivenetworks: Vladimir Grafov, Alexei Blinov , Will Hall
Soft(n) concept: Thecla Schiphorst
