Out of all the invited guests and speakers to last week innovation event at Telefonica, the one that I liked the most was Aram Bartholl. He is a media artist from Berlin that specializes in real world installations that manifest things that happen in cyberspace. So now that there is so much talk about convergence, he is actually making converge the cyberspace back into real world by taking some things that are familiar in the online world like chatting, the red pins from Google Maps, the names on top of characters that appear in games like World of Warcraft so you can identify the carachter (my favorite) or 2d tags that are very popular in some countries like Japan to use with your mobile phones, and then manifest them back into real, everyday life situations. I recoded part of his presentation that you can see below as a YouTube playlist (there are 6 clips) but just search for Aram Bartholl in YouTube or go to his Web site here. His work is very interesting because it makes you realize how some of the online conventions that we are so used to look totally out of place in real world (the WOW naming) while some others actually make a lot of sense and can be quite useful (the West/East Berlin for example).
