Item description for Open 11: Hybrid Space by Howard Rheingold, Saskia Sassen, Frans Vogelaar, Elizabeth Sikiardi, Noortje Marres, Koen Brams, Dirk Pultau & Marion Hamm...
Laptops in the park, Bluetooth alerts at the bar, microchips under the dog's skin: wireless technologies like WiFi, GPS, and RFID are changing public space. The world is increasingly traversed by an electronic infrastructure and overlaid with the invisible lines of swiftly evolving alternative cultural and social domains. The traditional physical and social public domain is being supplemented by zones, places and subcultures that transcend the local to interlink with the translocal and the global. Open 11: Hybrid Space asks, "How can individuals and groups appropriate, liberate, or sculpt this hybrid, seemingly flexible space? Where is the 'public' now, and whose spatial, cultural and political strategies will shape it?"
