The Illuminated Night Ride grasps one of the most habitual activities of a citizen – the act of taking a walk through the city centre after a working day, studying or taking care of family members. The project aims to radically lower the barrier of participation in media through this experiment, so that the walker does not need to go to a radio studio, nor does s/he have to arrange an interview with a journalist to take part in the co-creation of a story that is distributed. Instead, MYCYradio creates a mobile space of participation that connects some of the historical paths of Nicosia with day-to-day life of the people in the buffer zone.
The project is a performance, aimed at creating an audiovisual experience, which commences from the broad theme of community radio identity. The performance’s aural aspect consists of electric guitar experimentations and electronics, while the audience is simultaneously exposed to a live video‐art composition.
Creation draws a line between being a passive and an active agent in people’s life. Creation starts with questions. This process of discovery is both exceptionally broad and incredibly relevant for creating strong contextual work and social behaviour; regardless of whether we are conceiving of socially engaged performative art work or a highly sophisticated installation.
All Sources Are Broken is an internet-based-project developed by Labor Neunzehn. ASAB is both an artistic experiment and a collaborative re-archival practice, which presents itself as an open access web content management system (WCMS) for the investigation of the hypertext space of post-digital books. It encourages creative re-reading practices, parallel narratives and unconventional learning strategies. An online space for creativity, collective action and re-contextualisation. The project aims at exposing the ofﬂine/online cycle of data and ideas, exploring how both are being shaped by migrations between the material and the digital world, ultimately creating output originating from that cycle.
As certain spaces and times have become over-saturated, due to urbanization and the population explosion, certain (animal) species have began withdrawing to underpopulated landscapes and unoccupied times – into the night. We understand these withdrawals as a search for solutions that could lead to a ‘better quality of life’, an existence that would be better than the one offered to us by over-saturated spaces-times.
Some societies have the opportunity to freely express their opinion, to ask questions, to explore and to discover facts either through books, radio stations, social networking media, cinematographic media or other. Since the democratic revolutions took place, these societies secured freedoms of expression, which allowed for the representations of historical events to spread even more than before in and across countries.
