An outdoor computer kiosk from where a number of neighbourly connections were managed. These are a combination of recorded video, live audio and live electrical connections, testing possibilities at the juncture of the database, its "location", and its live interpretation by various publics.

A "kiosk" with a touch-screen and video screen, connected to neighbourhood audio and data streams, was set up for four days at the Bandra promenade. Multiple types of connections (video, audio, electrical), relationships between live and recorded material, and the various elements of the existing context, were brought into play.
The principal types of links were:

  1. About 80 short video clips were produced, at 9 or 10 different locations. These were viewable at the kiosk, by navigating through a set of pictures in a browser, a bit like on a website.
  2. Electrical connections were made between the kiosk and these locations, so as you watched the video one could also "light up" the house, street corner, etc. where the video was "coming from", or other locations visible from there. This was a parody or extreme case of "mapping".
  3. Live audio was being mixed and broadcast on micro-fm, received on radios on the ground and in the flats. In this way the multiple locations could all hear the discussion at the kiosk.
