Preparations for the ElectroSmog International Festival for Sustainable Immobility are gathering pace. An Electrosmog blog has been launched, and Doors of Perception has agreed to co-host a session on Friday 19 at deBalie, in the afternoon. Our focus will be on the practical design steps to be taken now. ICT developers have been working on videocommunication since 1946 – but the experience still sucks. If massive amounts of bandwidth are not the answer, are there more artful ways to enhance remote communication? We’re hoping to discuss promising approaches with a game designer, a theatre director/designer, and an artist and/or poet/writer.
