.
New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc./Turbulence.org has commissioned two
works and co-organized two panel discussions for the Boston Cyberarts
Festival and Cambridge Science Festival:

1. TURBULENCE COMMISSION: "HANDHELD HISTORIES AS HYPER-MONUMENTS"
(http://turbulence.org/works/HyperMonument/) by Carmin Karasic, Rolf van
Gelder and Rob Coshow. Designed for HP iPAQ 6900 series smartphones,
"Handheld Histories as Hyper-Monuments" uses GPS and mobile technologies to
address historic bias in Boston's public monuments. The artwork gathers
non-official stories to socially construct hyper-monuments that exist as
digital doubles, augmenting specific historic monuments. Pick up a
smartphone at Judi Rotenberg Gallery, 130 Newbury Street, Boston; April
21-28, 2007, Tues-Sat 10am-6pm. Funded by the LEF Foundation. Read more:
