READ/WRITE REALITY (RWR) is an intensive and visionary workshop created to pragmatically explore the methodological, technical and technological possibilities offered by Ubiquitous Publishing.

3+1 days hands-on and minds-on program in which we will follow you through the creation of a full ubiquitous publishing project, starting from scratch and ending up at product release. Participants will learn the methodologies, the conceptual and technological frameworks which will enable individuals, organizations, companies or collectives to use ubiquitous technologies to enact new forms of communication and expression, new business models, new ways in which you can activate your strategies and observe their effects.

Out of the monitor, in the spaces of our cities, bodies, objects and products.

RWR will be held on September 13-14-15+16 in Cava de’ Tirreni, at the Ostello “Borgo Scacciaventi”, a beautiful setting in a 15th century building near to the famous Amalifi Coast. The workshop will fill 3+1 days of intense activities, visionary discussions, engaging hands-on practices, on-the-field explorations and content-production, an “ubiquitous movida” to be discovered, great food, wine and scenery, in contact with the rooted traditions of the beautiful South of Italy.

During the last day (Sept. 16th) a big party and a city-wide event will mark the achievement of your work: the result of the RWR workshop will be exposed in a prestigious building in the center of Cava de’ Tirreni, at the presence of internationally known academics and researchers.

Vacanza! (Holiday!)

please join us at AHAktitude 2011 in Carrara, in April 01-02-03, 2011

AOS will present:

Vacanza! a really relaxed Augmented Reality workshop

at AOS (and in the other initiatives such as REFF and FakePress) we’ve been proclaiming the rise of a new (or old?) idea of Augmented Reality, a philosophical approach screaming:

“Autonomy! You have the power and tools to shape your own world, creating additional spaces for your expression and free action!”

We’ve started some time ago, joyfully attacking supermarkets with our augmented reality invasion in Squatting Supermarkets.

Then we continued the Augmented reality experiments with FakePress, exploring the possibility to invent new languages and usage grammars for the world that had impacts on education, knowledge, society, cities and relationships.

And, lately, with our recently released Augmented Reality Drug, with REFF, RomaEuropa FakeFactory.

All these actions used technologies and practices to reinvent the world, our roles and the things we can do each days, promoting a multilayered, polyphonic, multicultural, free, autonomous version of reality, and suggesting that new imaginaries, languages, strategies,  politics and poetics can be created, reinventing art, business, activism and communication.

This is why we’re truly happy to present:

Vacanza!

(holiday)

http://ahacktitude.org/event/2011/doku.php?id=vacanza

a series of micro-workshops, micro-lectures, micro-forums and micro-interstitial meetings executed using crumpled-up Augmented Reality and other technologies.

When: April 1-2-3 2011, at AHAcktitude
Where: Carrara, Italy

AHAcktitude Program: http://ahacktitude.org/event/2011/doku.php?id=program

What:
An intense program of micro-workshops, micro-seminars, micro-lectio-magistralis disseminated in the spaces and times of the AHAcktitude meeting.

The micro courses will define an interstitial narrative that will traverse the whole event:

  • Workshops on Augmented Reality executed by throwing crumpled-up micro-sldies to other people during other workshops
  • Lectures on the Reinvention of Reality made for 1 people at the time while we invent new ways of remixing beer, vodka and tomato juice
  • The tales of our latest actions with squats in London, student groups at universities, taking them “REFF’s education program on the methodologic reinvention of reality through critical practices of remix, mashup, recontextualization and re-enactment” and organizing the initiatives for the protest that will take place on March 24-25-26 2011: narrated wearing stupid glasses with fake mustache and plastic noses, hiding post-it notes, qrcodes, AR markers and distributing small softwares, micro slideshows, mini websites prepared there, live, in realtime.

 

Feedback and interaction

Workshops are open for everyone!
They are anytime, anywhere, always!
Being hit by one of the crumpled-up slides will mean that you are in one of them!
The objective of the workshops is to create emergent, spontaneous, effective, reproducible, appropriatable, remixable, re-enactable, disseminated, augmented discussions.
Throw me your micro crumpled slides with questions and ideas!
Throw them to other people, so that they can be in the workshop, too!
Copy, fake, reproduce, show and plagiarize the micro workshops! use the post-its and qrcodes!
Make “fake” ones yoruselves!
Place them all around AHAcktitude and in the whole city!
Copy the micro softwares and micro-lectures!
send them by mail to everyone! click “i like” and “share” on social networks!
Finally, reality is augmenting.
