a series of workshops around Internet of Things, Ubicomp and Locative  
Media is starting !

An "Internet-of-Things" is under construction with technologies for  
unique digital identification (RFID), geolocation (GPS), embedded  
computing (ubiquitous or pervasive computing) and mobile networking  
(e.g. wifi, wimax, umts/3g). Places and objects become linked to  
digital media which can be everywhere people are.

Our digital life and social interactions are going to happen through  
tangible augmented objects and our physical environment will become  
the playground of new social and artistic behaviors, interventions,  
actions both in data and media spaces.

"New Brave World" proposes 4 workshops exploring the roles of  
artists, designers, media makers and creative scientists/developers  
in this context of the merge of digital and physical spaces.

Workshop 1: RFID with Régine Debatty and Daniel van Gils
Workshop 2: Hybrid Scrapyard with Jonah Brucker-Cohen and Katherine  
Workshop 3: Talkoo, electronic interventions in Urban Context with  
David Cuartielles
Workshop 4: Geotracing with Simon Pope and Just van den Broecke

have the possibility to test ideas by building RFID prototypes.
