OCTO-P7C-1 Intertubular Pneumatic Packet Distribution System is transmediale 2013’s Official Miscommunication Platform and is the result of a joint collaboration between the reSource transmedial culture berlin/transmediale, the Berlin-based collective Telekommunisten and the raumlabor berlin group.

ReFunct Media #5 is a multimedia installation that (re)uses numerous "obsolete" electronic devices (digital and analog media players and receivers). The devices are hacked, misused and combined into a large and complex chain of elements. They "interact" in different symbiotic relationships like mutualism, parasitism and commensalism.

 

Composting the City | Composting the Net examines the parallel process of fermentation and degeneration of our daily food scrapes and our shared digital commons. While Composting the City checks in on discarded food scrapes and leftovers, Composting the Net sources the immaterial wealth/junk of net data.
