Public Hacking

without comments

Since I bought my new mobile phone in Shanghai I’ve no idea how to contact the ‘official’ support service in the streets of China. Nokia takes of course no guaratee here in europe. Why is our western public space not used like this any more? I bet it would just take 5 minutes to get a new speaker for my phone …. ;-)

Locative Media Pacman

Interesting post by Jonah on MAKE blog.

Pacman game path arranged into audio tape

This project, “Nam June Paik Man” by Irish artist, Ivan Twohig, is an homage of sorts to Korean artist Nam June Paik, where Twohig employs the technique used by Paik of running a tape head over recorded audio tape to produce sounds. The difference is that Twohig’s tape is arranged in the labyrinth shape of a game of Pac Man he played and the recorded audio is from the game as well, so you can literally follow the path the artist took around the game and listen to it as well.. Pretty cool way to re-imagine video games through physical interfaces. Ivan Twohig Projects

I like that. And it s not only game art but in some sense aslo a locative media art project. Looks like a typical GPS city sound walk. :-)
