Art is Open Source and Human Ecosystems, together with Nefula, and Ubiquitous Commons, performed an interactive exhibit, a workshop and talk in the city of Bari during the Festival dell’Innovazione 2015.
The exhibit “HE/BA – Human Ecosystems Bari“, placed in the beautiful location of Teatro Margherita, realized a temporary version od the Realtime Museum of the City of Bari along the three days of the event.
For the occasion an hand-made furniture was realized, describing the Human Ecosystems strategy of implementation (functions and mechanism of harvesting, processes analysis and outputs, including the Realtime Museum of the City, the Lab and the education process) and role of Ubiquitous Commons.

The 6 hours workshop was structured ad an intense hands-ho experience, from the theoretical and philosophical approach of Human Ecosystems to the description and use of the HE platform, and the exploration of possible use cases scenarios.
The group participants, mostly composed by young policy makers, students and researchers, installed on their machines latest version of HE: all of them is now able to autonomously start their own experiment.
And is is already happening. XYLab, together with FF3300, is now joyfully playing with Human Ecosystems: as you can see from the pictures below, after the exhibit Bari observation is still open. This is the best result we could hope for from our workshop.

The talk, conceived as a Lectio Magistralis and dedicated to Human Ecosystems and Ubiquitous Commons, was an effort to describe and communicate the complexity, tensions and conflicts emerging from our ubiquitous hyperconnected lives to an audience of high school students.
