Pixelspaces 2007: Onfield

Pixelspaces 2007 is staging Onfield as a setting for a discussion of an emerging development: the strategies and methods of community informatics are being applied to location-based services. The Ars Electronica Futurelab is thus carrying on its practice begun in 2000 of intensively focusing on leading-edge trends in a series of symposia and exhibitions, and scrutinizing these developments from the perspective of an atelier-lab.

The analogy at the basis of this is that the movement of an individual through physical space corresponds to the active use of social software and instant messaging. Thus, Web-based functions to facilitate the formation of virtual communities and to make possible new ways of perceiving space and new practices of utilizing it are being applied to the physical sphere in which people live out their daily lives. Through linkup with physical localization of users and user-generated content, the metaphor of “being online” becomes “being onfield.”
