Starting today a group of artists have set off to map and moove from Moscow to Bejing on the Transsiberian Express. Online conferences and a live mediastream will follow them on the way. I imagine there will be quite some holes in the coverage as wireless networks and mobile networks must be scarse in Siberia, but quite a ride.
The project intersects with recent public debate in Copenhagen about air pollution in the city. In collaboration with Senior Scientist Jørgen Brandt from The National Environmental Research Institute in Denmark a first prototype is developed for making an indicator that can be placed in the city and display local levels of pollution as well as pollution forecasts on individual streets. The project holds an open source script for displaying data from the Internet in a variety of forms.
