- Fee is a super cool, couch surfing evangelist who will be travelling around on a road trip that aims to build a two way culture – oh, and she loves to Tweet. She describes herself as a geek artist, technoevangelist & nomadic digital consultant from the UK.
- Driving around australia sharing culture – top down, art and culture should be shared with everyone and everyone is doing amazing things everywhere, not just in cultual hubs
…reallybigroadtrip is an experiment in living & breathing creative digital culture. The plan is to get a bus and drive it around Australia, making and sharing geek arts with everyone that I meet. It’s an artwork and research project, plus a home / studio / workshop / exhibition / screening and collaboration space, all wrapped up in one big bus.
I’m a big fan of collaboration, crowdsourcing my life & exploring digital culture by using digital culture.
With the assistance of my truly awesome geek possee, and your crowdsourced suggestions I will seek out opportunities to exchange artwork, stories, knowledge & networks.
This is a mobile digital arts space that will travel to you, wherever you are, and will take other makers along for the ride. My national & international ‘Nomads in Residence’ will tell me where they want to go, who they want to meet & what they want to achieve while they’re with me. I will help to facilitate those relationships & of course share everything that subsequently takes place.
- Isn’t ‘event’ focused, more focused on the user experience and the moment of connection being maintained via participation.
- There is a number of ways to make yourself visible and maintain those relationships as you go through.
- Social media allows you to capture moments and share them with your friends, its a way of saying ‘im here, your not’.
- Collective experiences need trust and bonding to maintain – create a platform for every single access point in journey to form the experience in it’s entirety – people can tag you and a media hub is created for you that gives flavour and texture to your project.
- Examine the ‘cloud’ of activity in particular digital locations – see who’s active and where the most active spaces are.
- How can we be concerntrating on the ‘art’ of projects/culture if we are always tweeting or instagramming? Tweetseats – backchannel to what is going on in the physical location that has potential to create dialouge, depth and richness in the information.
- Augmented Reality – Via the internet and GPS your location is targeted and the internet knows the coordinates – so you can go somewhere without going there, as long as you know the coordinates. You can create rich, deep and immersive digital experience. Manifest.AR are big players in this trend.
- Dont just use technologies as they come ‘out of the box’ consider how they make you feel and how you can use them as part of the storytelling arc and create texture and journey.
- Role of transmedia
- Storify – create a trail and take videos of yourself as a kind of diary
