Call of Interest: ‘Locative Media: Rautatieasema returns’ Workshop

Monday 27th March – Saturday 1st April 2006

As part of PixelACHE festival of electronic arts and subcultures 2006, Helsinki.


Acknowledging the recent contemporary past, the workshop aims to engage with the Central Railway Station site in Helsinki, and will begin with considerations upon what happened last time at the same site during PixelACHE 2004. On that occasion, approximately 20 international media and performance artists, activists, archaeologists and researchers spent 5 days exploring overlaps in ‘capture-gathering’ methods and site-documentations.

However, this time participants will be given a key to a locker in the railway station. What you find inside, will be something to begin with.

Hence the reiteration of the Locative Media Workshop in the context of PixelACHE 2006 focuses activity towards devised performance; to ethnographic, storytelling and interpretative approaches; to reiterations and representations.


Local, regional and Nordic/Baltic persons are encouraged to apply for participation:
