REFF in London @ Goldsmiths University with Furtherfield

While in London we are starting our actions toward the diffusion of critical practices that use ubiquitous technologies to enact autonomous, free forms of expression.

Today we have been at Goldsmiths University to perform a workshop on the REFF project and to present the free tools that FakePress has been distributing during the last few months:

MACME: a cross-media publishing system that enables WordPress blogs to publish content using location based media, QRCodes and Augmented Reality, generating not only the markers needed to disseminate multimedia content on spaces, objects and bodies, but also PDFs and ePub formatted ebooks.

KNOWNERS: a WordPress plugin that transforms a blog into a knowledge visualization and sharing system

BLUETOOTH WARS: a live Linux distro that turns a laptop into a mobile multimedia broadcasting station that can be used to invade entire cities with contents and information

All these projects will be released in just a few days: stay tuned for updates.

And also watch out for the opening of the REFF exhibit in London at Furtherfield Gallery, on Feb. 25th 2011.

Stay tuned!

William Burroughs – rejected from the RomaEuropaWebFactory Prize

http://www.romaeuropa.org

“I am William Burroughs.
I could not participate to RomaEuropaWebFactory.
Damn those bloody suckers couldn’t tell art if it hit them in the forehead.
Deep shadows, close down over culture when culture is not able to catch up with the world it lives in.
I could not participate to RomaEuropaWebFactory.
I could not participate because I am an old man, cutting up pieces of paper, lookig for hidden poetry, forgotten literatures in things that have been thrown away, forgotten, put away, stashed in the trash.
I am William Burroughs.
I could not participate to RomaEuropaWebFactory.”

William Burroughs, famous for his cut-up technique, allowing for the creation of beautiful literature compositions by remixing pieces of existing works, was rejected from the literature section of the RomaEuropa Web Factory.

“This is not original work!” was the scream of the Jury.

William Burroughs now joined RomaEuropaFAKEFactory, here:
