Examining the cross-section of media technology, public space and civic action mediActions poses a question to the promise of new technologies as activators of social and political change. Visions of the internet and other forms of media as the aggregators of democracy and engagement in civil society have created unfulfillable utopian dreams yet as these media forms construct a new layer of the concrete spaces which we inhabit, can we discover their potential for participation, action and activism?
Based upon these questions mediActions will host a 6 week artist in residence program including participants from China, India, Indonesia and Japan, engaging in collaboration to investigate how media technologies and our thinking towards them may enable a new activation and inhabitation of the public spaces around us.
At the centre of this project is a series of workshops to be held every Saturday throughout October in which participants will collaborate with the artists to investigate about our relationship with media and public space and develop art works/events around this to be finally presented at 3331 from 30th October-11th November.
