<nettime-ann> Call for participation - VIDA workshops program: Mission Eternity Stowaway led by etoy.Corporation

Dear friends,

please find below an invitation to participate in the next VIDA workshop with etoy.Corporation featuring their awarded project Mission Eternity Sarcophagus.

On 3th, 4th and 5th April, from 4 pm to 8 pm, Espacio Fundación Telefónica will be hosting the VIDA Mission Eternity Stowaway Workshop, run by the Swiss digital artist group Etoy.Corporation.

The group are pioneers in Internet art and creators of the Mission Eternity Sarcophagus project, which received first prize at VIDA 10.0 for a mobile tomb containing and displaying the portraits of those who want their data remains to be sent to a digital afterlife, thus offering them life after death. AGENTS miss Monorom (board member and long term CTO) and agent Zai (co-founder) invite and guide humans (age 5 to +99) on an eternal trip through space and time. They will assist each person to design and construct a MINI ARCANUM CAPSULE – an unique data collection of 64MB that, at the end of the day, will be inserted into the MISSION ETERNITY STORAGE. The system tries to keep the data alive forever by endless copy processes in the social network of MISSION ETERNITY ANGELS (people who donate a part of their free hard disk space to the mission).

Participants should bring whatever they want to put into their personal MINI ARCANUM CAPSULE:  i.e. childhood images, documents, love letters, favorite books, drawings, technical manuals of devices they use, family album, plans of their house, songs (as mp3 files), packages of the food they eat, cash register slips, their trash of the previous day. Etoy is totally open to handle the most crazy data, the more the participants prepare and think about their concepts the more intense and interesting the workshop.

Disclaimer: MISSION ETERNITY is an artistic venture that is highly questionable and requires open minded test pilots.

Mission Eternity Stowaway workshop is part of VIDA workshop program.
