Call for participants
September 2nd to 4th, 2003
La Rábida, Huelva [Spain] / Cyberspace
The multitude connected is an experimental meeting to build a public virtual space based upon real time exchange of audio/video information
among different geolocalizations.
Information flows received from different geolocalizations, and other locally produced, will be mixed and projected in five screens with their
sound systems in a daily night party, in La Rábida [Huelva / 22:00 to 02:00 GMT]. At the same time, video images recorded live on site will be
streamed back into the Web.
Part of the flows will be managed through a bi-directional satellite internet connection.
We consider the event as a political-technological experiment that will allow to practically speculate about the construction of the multitude
[connected], the global political subject emerging since the zapatista uprising, through Seattle, Genoa and the 2002 anti-war global campaign.
The multitude connected is a meeting of hackers, activists and artists in order to build new spaces of cooperation and common action; "a world
where many different worlds can fit".
Streams will be managed from the multitude connected web site:
Audio/video archives and streaming url´s will be uploadable at: http://www.hackitectura.net/lamultitudconectada/descargas.html [still under
