Barcode Cinema invites you on a tour of the geographic locations of geotagged images in the vicinity of Conflux Festival New York. Each Barcode Cinema site features a custom-designed 2D barcode sticker. With the use of a web-enabled camera phone and a free downloadable application that turns a mobile phone into a barcode scanner, festival goers can interact with barcode stickers at several Barcode Cinema sites to access locative media. Image sonifications of geotagged images will playback as movies on mobile phones at locations discovered from our research of the communal landscape constructed by Google, Flicker and Picasa, among others. Participants will hear a sonic interpretation of the surveiled imagery of the space they have accessed. Make sure you have everything you need to get started.
