:: a mobile interactive media art exhibition in a taxicab ::

October 10th - 31st, 03
Presented by Year Zero One
at various locations across Toronto

Year Zero One is pleased to present teletaxi, a site-specific media art exhibition in a taxicab. The taxi is outfitted with an interactive touch screen/computer that generates video, animations, music, and information triggered by an onboard GPS (Global Positioning System) receiver which allows the displayed artwork to change depending on where the taxi is in the city. With the combination of the media/gps technology, the mobile environment and the passenger/audience inside the cab, the seven artists in teletaxi are offered a unique set of possibilities for exhibiting their work - both technically and thematically.

teletaxi will expose interactive media art to a normally passive audience, by presenting works that explore notions of mapping, intimacy, subterranean space, simulated cities, generative art games, information architecture, data-visualisation, public interventions, surveillance and psychogeography.

Participating Artists:

Michael Alstad - Toronto
Isabelle Hayeur - Montreal
David Jhave Johnston - Montreal
Michelle Kasprzak - Montreal
Jim Ruxton - Toronto
Camille Turner - Toronto
Gernot Wieland - Berlin


teletaxi demo: Friday, October 10th @5pm
in front of the Latvian House - 491 College St, Toronto

Join us for a 'fare free' ride in the teletaxi to navigate some of the neighbourhoods and Toronto sites explored by
Year Zero One artists and guests.

TeleTaxi is an off-site programme of the TRANZ<--->TECH Media Art Biennial
