The project is about the realization of a media plastic, a network-based permanent installation in
public space. A media plastic is a sculpture made out of pure information, its dimensions in space
are defined by bits, bytes, longitude and latitude and the possibility of getting access to it. Accept the
medium we call reality there is no specific physical layer involved.
Selected artists with high affinity to the net and the new media are going to be invited to create a web-based work, which has the thematic focus of „access“ and its dependence on spatial reference systems. The individual contributions will be presented on separate webpages with content of their choice which are accessible via a single URL. Due to a simple location check however the website is only available on a specific position, which is the address of km temporaer in Berlin. When requesting the website from different locations, the works will not be visible and the visitor gets the address of km temporaer via Google-Maps. Therefor the webpage will be primarily accessed by smartphones and other mobile devices by users which are on site.
For the vernissage the premises of km temporaer will remain empty and several hashtags #nonaccess will be printed on the walls.The twitter-stream for the #Hashtags on the evening of the opening will be printed as a small booklet in a limited edition. After the end of the project „local.#non.access“, a plaque with the URL of the medial plastic will be installed on the facade.
