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.
