[Oct 27] Urban Atmospheres - This is Not a Simulation

SRL alumnus Eric Paulos' Urban Atmospheres hosts an evening at SFMOMA (and more SRL crew involvment: Karen Marcelo coding RFID tag tracking and visualization)

In collaboration with Anthony Burke and David Ross
Intel's Urban Atmospheres presents a single evening event at SFMoMA....

Where are we? Locative media, GPS in car navigation, and the barrage of emerging location technologies are upon us? Somehow more than ever we find ourselves lost in the sea of longitudes and latitudes. A new wireless numerology? We invite you to thrust yourself within a space where mobs, crowds, tuples, and even the wallflower are active participants in a delicious interactive architecture of interwoven patterns. Tags, RFID, and tessellated surfaces thrust themselves into a feedback system generously lubricated by alcohol.
