GEO GOO (info park)
by Jodi

JODI explores the relations between the world we build through the Internet and the one based on our past mental and physical maps. Services such as GoogleMaps have changed radically our worldview by making the Globe accessible as a commercial multi-user surface. Mapping these online geometrical constructs to reality and vice versa, overlaying their figures as jogging paths, The 'Parc Royal' of Brussels (Warande Park) becomes an INFO Park revealing symbols and mysteries of the capitale of Belgium and Europe, amplifying or deconstructing them through an intricate web of data and associations.

For the finissage of the exhibition, JODI performed "Folksomy Blue Box" with the new VJ mixer developed by Yacine Sebti and produced by iMAL.
