Turn the world on: HiveWares

Posted by Ian on May 3, 2008 in blog | No Comments

Quite simply one of the most inventive and progressive deployments of network techniques as arts enablement, the UK-based opensource movement of Hive wares and networks has revolutionized the way you can immerse your fellow street warriors in your own aural fantasies. The most recent application ‘Street Radio‘ was recently debuted on the pavement of Southampton as ‘Hidden Histories‘. Creating localised fm transmission posts throughout the city, audio-visitors can tune into 89.0fm, and navigate the city as recordings fade in and out of eachother – in an almost Benjaminian constellation of aural arcades. Check out Hive’s other projects, and turn your world on.
