10th – 31st, 03
Zero One is pleased to present teletaxi, a site-specific media
art exhibition in a taxicab. The taxi is outfitted with an interactive touch
screen that displays video, animations, music, and information triggered
by an onboard GPS (Global Positioning System) receiver which allows the
displayed artwork to change depending on where the taxi is in the city.
With the combination of the media/gps technology, the mobile environment
and the passenger/audience inside the cab – the seven artists in teletaxi
are offered a unique set of possibilities for showing their work - both
technically and thematically.
Presented by Year Zero One
at various locations across Toronto
will expose interactive media art to a normally passive audience,
by presenting works that explore notions of intimacy, mapping, subterranean
space, simulated cities, information architecture, data-visualisation,
public interventions, surveillance and psychogeography.
