ElectroSmog Live: International Festival for Sustainable Immobility

18 maart, 2010

Bringing together a broad coalition
The ElectroSmog festival brings together a broad coalition of designers, environmentalists, urban and spatial planners, technologists, artists, theorists, and engaged and concerned citizens, to explore and ‘design’ sustainable immobility.

 

Online
A crucial dimension of the festival will be its on-line presence, where audiences from basically anywhere with an internet connection can follow events on-line, join in discussions and debates, and contribute to the program. ElectroSmog works together in a network of accomplished cultural and new media centres, labs, theatres and other public venues to create the local ‘hubs’ that will inter-connect.
> Participate online directly.

Zero travel
ElectroSmog is a truly international festival, with everything you might expect: international debates and discussions, performances, art projects, exhibits, site specific projects, screenings, a design competition, and more. ElectroSmog stakes its claim for a radical break with the current systems of hyper-mobility not simply by discussing the issue, but by actually implementing it. The festival is CO2 compensated through the Hivos Climate Fund.

 

Thematic discussions, presentations and connected debates
The ElectroSmog festival-program is organised around a series of interlocking thematic programs, connected discussions and debates all transmitted live over the internet. Themes covered by these events include:
Global perspectives on hyper-mobility
Witnessed Presence
Hyper-mobility and the urban condition
City & country branding debate
Deep local and remote technologies
Designing for (im)mobility
e-mobility versus immobility
Public media art projects and sustainability
Energy and information
ElectroSmog is Good for You!
Food and global mobility
