TUE 26.06.12 - SAT 08.09.12

SubMap focuses on developing a new visualisation methodology that 
can be used to express factual, location and time-based data in a 
dynamic way. SubMap distorts our traditional views of how we conceive 
maps, which are based on factual and/or public data. What happens 
if our maps are based on subjective data, or private information 
which changes across time and space? Can such a private map 
become public? If so what would its form, function and use be?
This workshop will take the form of a short introduction to SubMap 
— its history and approach — and issues around visualising 
distributed and personalised sensor network data. The second, more 
hands on, session focuses on individuals creating their own SubMap. 
People can insert personalised information, for example the location of 
their home, as a base point for a distorted, personalised map of Dublin 
City. The distorted map can be shared online as an image, printed on 
paper, taken home or left in the gallery lab as a trace of the workshop.
SubMap was originally developed by Attila Bujdosó, Dániel Feles, 
Krisztián Gergely, Gáspár Hajdu, László Kiss in 2011.
 
BIO: Kitchen Budapest opened in 2007 as a spicy new media innovation 
lab for young researchers who are interested in the convergence of 
mobile communication, online communities and urban space and 
passionate about creating experimental projects in cross-disciplinary 
teams. Kitchen Budapest regularly organises exhibitions to present 
their prototypes, as well as works or projects from related institutions 
and professionals.
