City As Network & Hyperwalk


  • LOCATIVEAUDIO (Valencia+Network) was a collaborative project including simultaneous soundwalks, and interactive works exploring geolocative audio and media in an Urban Network. It was a practice-led network which investigated human interaction with cities from a sonic perspective. It connected the urban experience with the ritual of the concert hall, art gallery or museum, extending its scale and ways of interpreting contents. Simultaneous walks took place in the cities of Valencia, Malaga, Virginia, Gävle, Avignon, Linz, Grenoble, Volos, Hanoi, and Tempere. In Valencia we recreated Val del Omar's historical 1939-45 Circuito Perifonico, just after the Spanish Civil war.
  • ORGANISERS: This project is organised by the NOVARS Research Centre, University of Manchester in collaboration with the UPV - Universidad Politecnica de Valencia and Galleria Valle Orti. The Network edition is funded by SALC's Research Network Fund, University of Manchester and previous editions were funded by cities@manchester

Multimedia Database as Narrative Mechanism
Intensive Five-day Workshop
13 – 17 April 2013, Volos, Greece
organised and hosted by the Lab of Environmental Communication and Audiovisual Documentation Department of Architecture, University of Thessaly
in conjunction with The I-Node of the Planetary Collegium

The Lab of Environmental Communication and Audiovisual Documentation (LECAD) of the Department of Architecture at the University of Thessaly is happy to invite you to participate to an intensive, five-day workshop entitled Multimedia Database as Narrative Mechanism.
The workshop will take place in Volos between Saturday 13 and Wednesday 17 April 2013. The workshop’s kick-off event is a two- day symposium on the same theme. The symposium will be held on Friday 12 and Saturday 13 April 2013. The symposium will provide the theoretical framework for the ensuing workshop. Both the symposium and the workshop are organised and hosted by LECAD in conjunction with The I-Node of the Planetary Collegium. The workshop is designed for undergraduate and postgraduate students of architecture, planning and regional development, fine arts and cultural studies.
Basic knowledge of interactive projects and digital design will be appreciated. For additional information on the workshop’s theme, its aim and scope, the collaborators, dates, locations, travel, accommodation and registration please refer to the relevant sections of this document.

Workshop Theme
This workshop readdresses the notion of the list and the archive in the conceptual framework of contemporary, digital environments. It investigates the aesthetic and ideological constitution of the archive as a list, examines the nature of the historical evidence that can be transcribed in and communicated by moving images and, finally, experiments with the database as a storytelling mechanism that allows for multiple narrations about the city and its architecture. Hopefully, carrying this line of inquiry forward will enable a deeper understanding of contemporary urban environments via the effective and creative utilisation of a multimedia database for the city and its architecture. The host city of Volos is treated as a unique case-study, where the theoretical explorations of the two-day symposium can be put to effective use.


With Joshua Kopecek, Mathias Rossignol, Đinh Lê Vân and Trí Minh; in collaboration with Hanoi Soundstuff Festival
