Founders of Share:Krakow - the unit of global organization dedicated to supporting collaboration and knowledge exchange in new media communities and ‘patchlab’ - international festival of audiovisual art. Members of AVnode network - an international network of artists and professionals organizing festivals and/or working in the fields of audiovisual live performances.
The a/v project explores the Vienna underground traffic space, in accordance to its unique way to transit in space and time. Translocation by metro creates specific time and space suspension - every-day experience makes this fact unconsidered as a journey, rather as a quick transfer from point A to point B where the movement is reduced to the reflection only of the aiming destination and the trip itself is a blank space without the visual relation to the landscape.
The project includes secret images encoded using Visual Secret Sharing Scheme (VSS) which can be decoded in an interactive installation.
Vienna Transcoded is a part of a wider [URBAN.LAB] work-in-progress project.
