2 LONDON-BASED DESIGNERS/ARTISTS COMING TO SAN JOSE...SEEK LOCAL HELP!


Hello from Anab and Tom,

We are in the process of planning a project that will be part of ISEA, an international biannual electronic art festival, coming to San Jose in August.

Our project is simple, a yellow chair on the street advertises an open WI-FI network from which people will be able to access a ‘yellow chair’ website. A very local community space for sharing, ideas, questions, answers, recipes, music, etc, both around that chair and with another yellow chair community in another neighbourhood across town.

The project is all about how domestic wireless networks can be built upon to create a lively community space.

We are looking for 2 households that have wireless internet and are interested in seeing how this might develop into a live art project for 1 week. All of this will happen in the public space outside the house and will not interfere with your everyday life. We will be on hand to manage the project on a day-to-day basis, but would love to have you participate as and when you feel like it.

We will cover the cost of your internet connection for the duration of the project.

If you are interested or have any questions, please contact us.
Thanks:)
