An opportunity to unearth and engage Los Angeles in the night using mobile devices, GPS tracking, and media databases, that become part of a live media collage created by visitors, surrounding communities, and online participants.
The evening of culture will explore artistic and historical landscapes of Los Angeles through the expressive potential of emerging mobile media, live music, graph art, artist performances, and an installation of art objects. The event celebrates and takes place in one of Los Angeles' latest "historical cultural monuments", the Juncture Block Building, and at the new Los Angeles State Historic Park.
In addition to enjoying the live music and cultural exhibit, visitors will be able to participate in a number of "urban explorations" of north-east downtown. Thanks to technology donated by Nokia and Cisco, software developed by CENS, and a cultural civic computing system created by art and media students at UCLA, participants in the event will be able to share their experiences and create collaborative media maps of the city.
