The copenhagen activist art group dunst has taken the initiative to arrange an INTERNATIONAL QUEER festival 2006, 3-9 July in Copenhagen in Raahuset.
The aim with the festival is to gather and develop manifestations of queer culture and activism. The festival is concerned with alternative identity, lifestyle, gender and sexuality, which lies outside the normal hetero sexual norm. Go to their website for info on the call.
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.
