Austrilian Locative Artist Colab
For all the Australian artist geowanking geeks out there:
Organisers hope to tap into developments in so-called "locative media" such as global positioning systems, mobile phones and movement sensors.
Dr Rackham said the way internet users had seized on Google's new mapping services, building new ways to navigate them and turning them into useful tools, showed how quickly ideas move from experimental to mainstream.
The 10 artists taking part in the media lab have worked with everything from three-dimensional internet interfaces to old-fashioned textiles, as well as the internal spaces created in video games and other computer environments.
The group organizing it is called ANAT. Maybe some cool art/tech will come out of it.

cool art/tech, my ass.
3d web-interface? that's laughable. about as useful and provocative as a three-dimensional BOOK interface.
totally useless techno wankjob.
and believe me, i'll gladly eat my words if a "3d interface" will ever make more sense for browsing the web than the 2d surfing that we're used to. because I'M ALL ABOUT teh efficiency.Posted by: No at October 8, 2005 01:53 PM
Well, I don't know what the fuck these people are going to do, but it seems like ANAT is just trying to provide some resources for geeky artists to experiment with. It's quite possible most of it will be rubish, but I hope something useful, or at least funny will come of it.Posted by: nym at October 8, 2005 03:58 PM
