Astrovandalistas invites you to occupy their server! Astrovandalistas is giving a workshop where participants will create a collective archive of recent social movements from data floating on the internet, and turn it into a physical documentarial experience, presented as an audiovisual interactive installation during the week of Sight & Sound. Participants will collect and archive different kinds of geotagged data from social media networks, and then use Raspberry Pi's to program their own interpretations of this data via audiovisual transmissions in the hopes of collectively creating a cartography of these events.

La Sonora Telemática is an autonomous orchestra-installation generating an audio landscape comprised of live compositions based on geotagged data collected by workshop participants. The orchestra is comprised of semi-intelligent devices, each programmed to have individual personalities and react differently to the signals being processed. Some of the signals will come from pre-existing networks and databases, such as Twitter and Tumblr, while others will be collected by the public during the workshop exploring the city using cameras, microphones and other data-collecting devices. Ultimately, La Sonora Telemática will produce a collective map of the incredible constellation of data that surrounds us.
