Performative Artists Talk at Linear Momentum


We will give a performative artists’ talk on Thursday 24th November at 7pm as part of the Linear Momentum group exhibition at the Galerie im Körnerpark in Neukölln (Schierker Str. 8, 12051 Berlin), curated by Conny Becker

We will present our daily practice of recording everywhere we go with GPS and the outcome of this as trace and line. We will also perform an excerpt from Narrating Our Lines, in which we play an animation of journeys from previous years and try to remember the human events behind the abstracted traces. The animation was created for us as open source software by Peter Vasil.

Our engraved acrylic piece All Our Traces in Berlin 2011 and Dan’s Drawing Machine II are also on display as part of the exhibition which runs until January 22nd.

Dan talking at Locative Media and Sound Art Conference in Belgium

On Saturday 10 May, Dan has been invited to give a presentation entitled ‘A Personal History of Locative Media’ at a symposium on ‘Locative Media and Sound Art’ hosted by Musica and the Festival of Flanders in Kortrijk

Here’s the abstract:

Daniel Belasco Rogers will lay out a personal history of locative media from his position as an artist who has worked with locative media since 2005 and who continues a daily practice of collecting everywhere he goes with a GPS which he began in 2003 and his wife in 2007.

Belasco Rogers will use some of the locative projects he has made in Europe (including Kortrijk) as well as his GPS collection practice to illustrate various aspects of locative media as his thinking about it has changed since the days when the equipment was rare, exotic and expensive to today when many of us walk around with locative media devices in our pockets.
