Lecture: JODI '-A- Project'
Location: Collegezaal, Overblaak 85, Rotterdam
Free, all welcome

JODI, Joan Heemskerk and Dirk Paesmans present
work-in-progress on a new project for Rotterdam:

The Navigator(TM) writes a message on the
map.(Walk-a-Letter) (Bike-a-Word) (Drive-a-Book)
(Swim-a-Smiley :) The trajectories form sentences
in time. (Blue follows Black) How long does it
take for an anonymous scooter to drive a legible
word? The map of Rotterdam can display a thousand
storyboards. (This way#Red - Walk#Green) How to
read/write this book while in motion.
(Roadmovie-Between the Lines- Passagenwerk)
A:"Drive slowly to your work-Turn Right". A long
text to go on a mobile screen.
(GPSaccounting-Time) Numbers in the White Pages
of public transport. (La Linea-Bookmark/
Landmark- Latitude:Longitude) The irregular
citygrid shapes a trembling %Local fontstyle.
Through the urgent handwriting (follow my
footsteps) a text appears. (Ink on wheels) WHOIS
writing/driving the city and WHEREAMI in the
story (Alphaville-Storyville-Dogville) Can
Pattern recognition on these unreadable maps help
me find directions? How to unscramble Haiku-maps?
Am i on a journey in a message? An age long mess
of roadworks, the Library of the street
(Order-Dialect-Slang- Obscene- SMS) To read your
line, call this website anytime. Find a secret
trace in the shopping crowd. The irregular
"structure" of streets (SOS), and its access
resolution, determines how/where the writing
layout takes place. (Map-layers vs alined page)
