Instead of Lebbeus Woods: The Evening of Sponge

For health reasons, American architect Lebbeus Woods had to cancel his
evening on Thursday 11 November. Instead of an evening on social change
and architecture, DEAF04 presents The Evening of Sponge.

Sponge (Sha Xin Wei, Chris Salter, Joel Ryan, Harry Smoak, Yoichiro
Serita, Delphine Nain, Maria Cordell) will offer a public round table
discussion and presentation of its current experiment Membrane, now
exhibited at DEAF04.

Central question of The Evening of Sponge is: Why should our personal and
urban spaces be more mediated or interactive? What makes some responsive
systems or environments compelling and others the kiss of death?

The Evening of Sponge: Thursday 11 November, 20:00-22:00 hrs  {AT}  Van Nelle
Ontwerpfabriek

Tactical Urban Map Hack workshop

Traditionally, the mapping of territory has been an exclusive, closed
activity, as a means of legitimizing and enforcing the hierarchy of
governments and bureaucracies. The three-day workshop Tactical Urban Map
Hack (11-13 November) in the open space of Rotterdam involves the public
in artistic and activist web cartography projects, participating in the
creation of open urban mapping systems.

Data from the city, delivered by the workshop participants will be
consolidated in an online digital map that will be displayed live during
DEAF04 with the Cartographic Command Center (CCC). If you want to
participate in the Tactical Urban Map Hack workshop, come to the workshop
introduction at the Van Nelle Ontwerpfabriek

Tactical Urban Map Hack: Thursday 11 November, 15:00-17:00 hrs  {AT}  Van Nelle
Ontwerpfabriek
