Celular, GPS e Apropriação do Espaço
Vejam esse vídeo mostrando a experiência do professor Brett Satlbaum da UC San Diego com estudantes re-criando o espaço com o uso de telefones celulares e GPS. O post é de julho do blog abaporu project on technology appropriation, mas vale a pena assistir,mostrando formas de apropriação do espaço urbano e a mudança de “scripts” desse espaço usando os dispositivos.
“Brett Stalbaum, who had brought Boost’s cheap GPS-enabled internet-connected phones to my attention, has been using them in two of his classes at UC San Diego this past quarter. The result is “antinormalizer”, a project in which his students used the phones to re-make public spaces around campus. As Brett explains in the video, cell phones are increasingly scripting our behavior in public spaces, so why not use them to “change the script of already programmed spaces”? The result is a fascinating baroque layering of unexpected behaviors onto existing space.
“Antinormalizer is a project of VIS 141B (Advanced Computer Programming in the Arts) and CAT 124 (Sixth College Practicum) at the University of California San Diego, Spring 2007. In it, a location aware mobile phone application helps students do things that are antinormal. And, it is also all of the antinormal performance that happened as a result.”
