Collaborative Futures

Last week I participated in an extreme booksprint on the theme ‘Collaborative Futures’, commissioned by Transmediale for their festival which begins in Berlin on tuesday.

For five days I saw almost no-one other than my collaborators, Adam Hyde, Marta Peirano, Mushon Zer-Aviv, Michael Mandiberg, Mike Linksvayer and Aleksandar Erkalovic.

Twelve to fourteen hour days were standard, as we drove ourselves to establish some common ground. The result is a 140 page book which will be ready for distribution at the festival this week.

Lots more on this later, but the photo above was taken during the initial organization of our ideas at the end of the first day.

  1. What a great crowd and a great topic. I’m jealous I couldn’t participate.
