PROVFLUX 2005 :: MAY 27-29 The Providence Initiative for Psychogeographic Studies (PIPS) is pleased to announce its second annual Provflux, a weekend-long event dedicated to artistic and social investigations in psychogeography. Part festival and part conference, it brings together visual, performance, and new media artists, along with writers, urban adventurers and the general public. Events will take place throughout Providence to explore the physical and psychological landscape of the city. ***All events are free and open to public participation*** This year, we are anticipating the participation of over 200 artists from 9 countries, with projects that range from GPS-based mapping experiments to roundtable discussions, banquet dinners to guided walking tours, and public performance to a full gallery show. Please join us and help change the urban shape of Providence. PROVFLUX 2005 will include: :: metaradio > providence :: real time documentation CUBE2 :: 5.28-5.29 :: ongoing artist website: jpk.silversand.org project website: www.metaradio.net/providence/ Metaradio > Providence is a live audioblog to which I publish snippets of commercial radio in real time. I record Providence radio stations off my car radio to the blog using an audioblogging-enabled cell phone while driving around the city. Maps featuring US Geological Survey and 2000 US Census data, as well as satellite imagery contextualize the audio posts alongside text posts featuring my research into the stations’ formats, and the projected identities of their listeners. This journey, as published on the Metaradio blog forms a cartographic representation of Providence, illuminating the contestational space between the airwaves and lived reality. www.pipsworks.com/contact/projects/metaradio.html Kabir Carter, our hERE @ iEAR resident will also be blogging for Provflux.
