Raul Marroquin, one of the pioneers of European video art, will be at The Chill Concept this

Friday Oct.16 and Sat. Oct 17th, from 5:30 pm to 10 pm, with a unique internet art piece that

explores metropolitan traffic web-presence and social media interactivity, called “Traffic &

Meteo”. These presentations are part of Miami New Media Festival 2015.

Marroquin takes advantage of web technology since it enables users to collaborate from

remote locations and insert their perspectives into the art encounter. In his piece, he integrates

daily public live cam coverage and simultaneous field cast reporters via Periscope, who will

cover Miami traffic. These web cams will map a social media syndicated multi newsroom that

will host daily live commentary and analysis.

This art encounter will explore live communications by way of Google browsers and apps like

Twitter, Facebook and Instagram; tracking the informational flow of ground, areal and maritime

traffic. Daily off-site launch of a drone will broadcast Wynwood areal status using a GoPro live

cam and Meerkat.
