Spectropolis: Mobile Media, Art and the City

Spectropolis 2004 is a three-day event taking place in Manhattan City Hall Park on October 1-3, showcasing "diverse uses of everyday communications technology". Some of the projects featured include Bikes Against Bush (the infamous chalk writing bike) and the debut of UMBRELLA.net, a "network of coincidence" based on the opening and closing of umbrellas.

Visitors to Spectropolis will experience and witness "live"

projects such as screen-based interactions, audio narratives and physical installations powered or reliant upon the invisible forces of wireless technology. Projects will include a luminescent flower whose colorful glow intensifies as it moves closer to wireless internet "hot spots", a wireless bicycle that chalks text messages from the web onto city streets, a portable hearing device that transmits a soundscape inresponse to its immediate surroundings, and a computer station open to the public for free download of digital art objects.

There are also three panels, beginning with Hot Enough? Art, Activism, and Wireless Technology during the RNC on September 27th.
All the events are free and should be fun for everyone, even non-geeks.
