Reddy spent some time taking photos today as a resource to the project online. We have reserved the website domain urbanexplorerproject.com and the Facebook name Skibbereen Urban Explorer for use in the next phase
When is an event participatory and when is it not – when is an event like a conference and when is it not – lots of semantics this week and we struggle to make ourselves understood to ourselves and each other. Pictured above is one of the access points to the Rock, that needs clearing to open up the right of way again. With the help of some guerrilla gardeners we should be sorted.
Talking tech this week – Nick brought Ableton’s Push pad-based controller to create and perform music, with loads of instruments & effects, so hoping to develop somethings specific for the arts centre with this technology – discussed documentation and social media to capture participant experiences to be edited into a single short film – will establish a Facebook page to hold content and mediate work prior to the event – It’s hard to establish way of communicating in between meetings – some people use facebook some don’t, some use mobile phones some don’t, some use email some don’t… I guess thats why people have meetings.
