SENSEable City Lab (Dietmar Offenhuber u.a.): TrashTrack Project 2011

„Transmedia Matters? Researching (Electronic) Waste“ brings together different specialists who explore waste and its circulation. We discuss the various contents and results, the possibilities, chances and problems of the (trans-)media methods and techniques of an aesthetic research about waste, and specifically about e-waste. All speakers work with digital media and visualization tools and are coming from an artistic-scientific field.

The event is part of the Times of Waste research project that examines the ways and transformations of waste. The choice of the media is very important in this applied research - also because many breaks and intransparencies characterize the paths of the materials. To what extent transmedial aspects are relevant to the presented projects will therefore be the focus of the various contributions and discussions.

The event is public and free, the number of seats is limited.
