Making your mark

A couple of interesting things we found this week: Real Google Map markers (thanks ADA/LM); and the following call for participation.

QUERY in situ and online art project

DATES:start for Application: August 20th, 2009

in situ project in Munich: September 12th, 2009

BACKGROUND: This project consists of two parts. Part 1. An installation in Public Space in Munich, Germany taking place in September 2009. This part is a prelude to the online project. Google Maps will be taken from the virtual into real space: big balloons, shaped like Google marks, floating above two churches in Munich (St. Anna -christian and St. Lukas - evangelic), visible day and night, with questionmarks/querys on them. Part 2. takes place in Internet and is meant as an open art project and discussion platform.

It's unlikely but would be great if both real-space manifestations found their way back into the virtual map.
On the QUERY website, we recommend going to the FAQs for a 90second summary of 5000 years of religious development and geographic expansion.

Art from Space is an exploration of art-related phenomena that manifests in interesting ways on Google’s aerial maps. It is also an experiment in curatorial practice; collecting, presenting and contextualising items in ways that users can explore, free of curator-imposed framing and sequencing. This blog is Art from Space’s developmental musings made public, where items are introduced to the project in real time, rather than awaiting the grand unveiling of a completed exhibition. Specific locations of interest are highlighted in CAPS and linked to a map for further exploration. Visit the mother ship HERE.
