Martin Howse and Dan have just recorded a walk near Martin’s studio in Mitte which will be broadcast this Sunday 17 May at 10pm on reboot.fm During the hour-long walk, we talk about Martin’s visit to two of the Stadterweitern labs organised by Sabine Zahn that Andrea Keiz and Dan devised last week. Martin kindly lent his electromagnetic detektors that were used in the Stadterweitern labs. UPDATE: if you missed the broadcast, you can listen to the programme here on reboot.fm’s mixcloud channel
As part of Sophia’s forthcoming PhD by publication, she would like to share with you her reading and thinking though theories of the everday that relate to her ongoing practice of personal data collecting. Borrowing such terms as endotic from Georges Perec and expanding upon what Michel De Certeau thought an urban text might look like, she considers the implication for creating works in the twenty-first century with such digital data as GPS and SMS. Moderated by Bettina Knaup
