Pachube is Rocking Our World Right Now

I recently discovered Pachube ( pronounced “patch-bay”) after hearing about it on the Canadian radio program SPARK. After doing some research I only found one Vermont location that is actively submitting readings. What an exciting find. We look forward to working with pachube, arduino and max/MSP.

A recent project that got a lot of attention for Pachube involved it being used for citizen geiger counter readings in Japan, after the earthquake there on March 11, 2011.

Here’s a link to those geiger readings.

Here’s a link to the interview on Spark.

Here’s more about Pachube:

Pachube (“patch-bay”) connects people to devices, applications, and the Internet of Things. As a web-based service built to manage the world’s real-time data, Pachube gives people the power to share, collaborate, and make use of information generated from the world around them.

Explore the Possibilities of Exhibiting and Reading Radio and Sound art

This is really interesting and much needed exploration of sound art and sound art exhibition. The exhibition description says it explores “all” the possible ways of exhibiting and reading sound art – quite the overstatement!  I think there will always be new ways to exhibit and understand sound art. In any case, great to see people out there ready to take the journey.

The exhibition Radio Arts Space constructs a gallery inside radio space, where Sound art and Radio art works are exhibited. It explores (many possible ways) of exhibiting and reading Radio and Sound art. The project is also complemented by an (international) platform for the discussion of meanings, contextualization, artistic research and the exchange of sound art works.

radioCona, produced by CONA, launched in 2008, is a platform that uses the radio frequency space in art contexts. FM frequency is understood as public space, explored from different perspectives and mediated through artworks audiobooks, programming and exhibitions. radioCona is intervention into public space.
