Urban auscultation, listening from within - creating alliances through bodies, movements, sounds and technology
In a group of ten-fifteen people maximum (adjusting to covid rules), we will go on a walk at the surroundings of Ars Electronica; guided by a leader that will give instructions on the data collections to make; take careful notes about what happens and produce a series of experimental inventories or archives and a final cosmogram. Each spot introduces approaches to accounting data in the city realm: from public memory, metaphors, senses, and ecologies, and ways to bridge our inter/dependences with our environment. Accompanied by our urban sketcher we are documenting visually.
Spot 1 – Collect examples of “algorithm” histories.
Spot 2 – Collect examples of “data” uncertainties.
Spot 3 – Collect examples of “data” extraction.
Spot 4 – Collect examples of the olfactory/ tactile/ sonic dimensions
Make an inventory / Dealing with an archive
Create a “cosmogram” mapping out the different elements involved.

Aleyda Rocha (MX/ AT): Aleyda is an artist, researcher, environmentalist, and educator. She was born and raised in Mexico, based in Vienna, Austria. Her work deals with the political, social, and cultural everyday practices of extractivism of data, bodies, experiences intrinsically linked with colonialism and the colonial project. She thinks about sound and movement as a philosophical toolset to reflect on unuttered histories and unearthed linkages, and as a poetic means to document our personal, ecological, and global scale struggles in the 21st century.
